LSU’s offensive line was ranked as the top collective unit in college football by Pro Football Focus for the 2016 season.
quote:

Best offensive line
LSU
Pos. rank: 1


As a collective unit, no offensive line performed better than that of the LSU Tigers in 2016. The group finished atop our offensive line metric, largely because all three starting interior players had overall grades of at least 74.5. The Tigers were led by C Ethan Pocic, whose overall grade of 82.7 was bolstered by his pass-blocking performance that saw him yield just 11 total pressures with no sacks or hits allowed. LG Will Clapp was also outstanding in pass protection, as he was responsible for just nine total pressures, with two hits and no sacks. RG Josh Boutte was the only member of the interior trio to give up a sack, but his lone sack charged to him was accompanied by just seven other pressures. Read more.

I don't get this. They may have been great at run blocking, but at times our QBs were running for their life

The OLine definitely needs improvement, this just shows how awful OLine play is throughout college football.

I thought Guilbeau said the OL was terrible. He is some kind of expert, correct? Lol

I agree with their assessment, our tackle play just seemed so inconsistent all year

I agree too. LSU fans like to blame the entire OL, but it was really the offensive scheme and the tackles. LSU was tied with Kent State as the only team that didn't score on Bama and had the worse total offense vs Bama. That's what happens when your offensive scheme is poo, and your QB play sucks.

Good thing PFF doesn't read tRant...

Seemed like we lacked in pass protection. Danny's pocket awareness made those guys look better at times. But the guys at PFF are the best, so I'll take their word for it.

Get some tackles and we'd be dominant. We always produce mauling interior lineman.

A lot of fans rag our entire OL but the truth is that it was just the OTs that were having problems this year. The Tiger OL was really only one elite LOT from badarss.
