Steven Lassan with Athlon Sports
ranked the top SEC offensive lines for 2014 and Auburn came in at No. 1. Here is what he had to say about Auburn:
First-round pick Greg Robinson is a huge loss at left tackle, but the Tigers return four starters from a unit that paved the way for rushers to average 5.9 yards per carry in SEC play last season. Center Reese Dismukes is an Athlon Sports second-team All-American for 2014, while sophomore guard Alex Kozan is one of the SEC’s rising stars. According to Football Study Hall’s Bill Connelly, Auburn’s line ranked No. 3 nationally in 2013 in stuff rate and No. 2 in adjusted line yards.
Here is the complete ranking:
2. Texas A&M
4. South Carolina
6. Ole Miss
9. Mississippi State
