Position Breakdowns: Offensive Line

Since the loss of my beloved I ipad I have discovered that my productivity has a gotten a major bump up, so I thought I would put it towards something (un)productive. So with out further a do here is the fourth edition of the position breakdowns in which I give my best evaluation of the offensive line. (Note: I will do my best with this one but predicting where each one is going with the roster just saying they're on the line makes it a little tougher.) Due to space constrictions I'm just listing the starters before the jump look for backups after it.

Center

66 BJ Finney 6-4 303 So Starter

Left Tackle

73 Tavon Rooks 6-5 270 Jr Starter

Right Tackle

78 Cornelius Lucas 6-9 322 Jr Starter

Left Guard

55 Cody Whitehair 6-3 300 rsFr Starter

Right Guard

77 Boston Stiverson 6-4 306 rsFr Starter

BJ Finney did a great job at center last year bringing in Freshman All-American honors. Past center though none of the spots are sure locks although Snyder has said that both Stiverson and Whitehair have a good chance to contribute this coming season, and I tend to believe this as both were highly touted during bowl practice last season. It sounds like Manase Foketi is still working his way back from an injury last season but if he rehabs successfully and continues to develop he'll probably make it back into the lineup. Zack Hanson will be dearly missed after he played very well last season and it will be up to Cornelius Lucas, who at 6-9 322, is as big as just about anyone in the Big 12. JUCO recruit Tavon Rooks will probably line up at right tackle this season and if his recruiting films are any indication he will have no problem stepping into his new role. Backing up Rooks will be Ethan Douglas who's career dating back to high school has been plagued by injuries, hopefully he can turn it around and have a good senior season. At second string right guard is Thomasi Mariner who played well last year in several games, but will more likely than not start out as a backup. As for the third stringers, I wouldn't read into them too much as I based most of them off of heights, weights and prior reading but they make have moved positions since it was written.
