As Seth Emerson reminds us.
Since Aaron Murray has been the quarterback, three of his offensive linemen have gone on to be drafted: Ben Jones, Clint Boling and Cordy Glenn. None of them were first-rounders. Alabama had two in the top 10 last year alone.
The one consistent, long-term shortcoming of Richt’s tenure has been offensive line recruiting. Which, when you think about it, makes last year’s showing on offense pretty remarkable.
