Thought this was an interesting chart Ian Boyd compiled:
Note that his starting off point of comparison is an offensive line that was coached by none other than Sam Pittman, which begs an obvious question, especially in light of Boyd’s “Bedenbaugh’s hunt to play the biggest OL in college football history” observation. That question being, where does Georgia’s 2019 OL fit into the discussion?
Well, if I use Seth Emerson’s ($$) projected offensive depth chart as my point of comparison, here’s what Pittman would trot out on opening day at Vanderbilt:
- Left tackle: Andrew Thomas, 6-5, 320
- Left guard: Solomon Kindley, 6-4, 335
- Center: Trey Hill, 6-4, 330
- Right guard: Ben Cleveland, 6-6, 335
- Right tackle: Isaiah Wilson, 6-7, 340
Average size of those five: 6-5.2. Average weight: 332. The difference in total height between Georgia’s and Oklahoma’s projected lines is one inch, in Georgia’s favor. The difference in total weight is 14 pounds, in Oklahoma’s. Pretty damned even.
