2016 tOSU OL Discussion

Discussion in 'Buckeye Football' started by ant80, Jan 2, 2016.

    ant80 Think less, feel more.

    Thought I'd get this started. This is the way I see it going down.

    LT: Isaiah Prince
    LG: Demetrius Knox/Matthew Burrell
    C: Patrick Elflien
    RG: Billy Price
    RT: Jamarco Jones

    Since Prince was the first to lose the black stripe last year, I fell like he would beat Jones for the position. For the LG and RG, I feel like any two of Knox/Burrell/Price would work, with the third being the first to substitute.

    This year is of significance because most of the Tressel recruits will be gone. I can't name a single JT (or Fickell) recruit out of the top of my head this time around.

    edit: Changed Damien Prince to Isaiah... Lol. Can't believe I made that mistake.

    Prince was getting mentioned in bowl practices.

    I have high expectations for Burrell as well as Prince. I think they both end up in the NFL.

    Not worried about the offensive line. Decker is a blow no doubt but I think we will have a upgrade over Farris either way. I love chase and what he's done for osu (switching positions a few times) but he struggled some this past year. Losing Boren would normally hurt but I think physically Elflien is going to be an upgrade.

    Then you have Knox or Burrell stepping up on the interior. Maybe an offensive line that is even more physically imposing next year. I think the 2014 oline (just perhaps a smidge more physical) is a fair comparison.

    By the end of the year though... may be a top unit on the team.

    he meant Isaiah... Damien is at UMD

    I do agree with @ant80 and his starting lineup. Though I could possibly see Evan Lisle fighting for PT. I know one thing, I hope they send Kevin Federal out first off the bus before every game! Lol

    I think Price would stay at LG (where he's been), as opposed to flipping him to RG. He's played there all along, and with a right-handed QB, you'd want his veteran presence to help out on the left side of the line.

    I'd also keep Price on left side to help develop LT

    Amusing to think.. we're losing 3 of our starters..
    but look at the 4 names posed to replace them
    It's good to be a Buckeye fan

    I've read in multiple places at he could move to C, to increase his versatility for the NFL, and there isn't an experienced C to replace Boren. I'm sure Elflein can more than be an adequate replacement for Boren. And the young pups that could replace him at G leave little to no drop off

    There have been multiple reports that Elflein (not Price) will be the center next year.

    Sorry. Meant Elflein. That's why I also mentioned Elflein being an adequate replacement for Boren...
