Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports SEC Reporter Edward Aschoff ranked the top five offensive linemen in the SEC for 2017 and pegged LSU's Will Clapp at No. 2. Here's what he had to say:

2. Will Clapp, C/OG, LSU: Clapp enters his redshirt junior season with the Tigers on the move. After being a two-year starter at guard, Clapp is moving to center to replace the departed Ethan Pocic. Clapp was limited this spring because of a shoulder issue, but he's expected to be healthy in time for preseason camp. What's interesting about his move to center is that he's never played there at LSU, yet he's already been named to the Rimington Trophy watch list -- which means he's being recognized early as one of the nation's best centers. Clapp is incredibly athletic and if the Tigers need him to move along the line, he won't have any trouble doing just that.
Here is the complete Top 5, according to Aschoff:

1. Jonah Williams, OT, Alabama
2. Will Clapp, C/OG, LSU
3. Braden Smith, OT, Auburn
4. Frank Ragnow, C, Arkansas
5. Jawaan Taylor, OT, Florida

The Tigers have made a habit out of recruiting versatile o-linemen for several years now. Give Grimes and even Miles credit for this, as well as Coach O for continuing this practice. Injuries happen all the time, especially at o-line. It helps to have multiple players who can step in and fill a hole. Just like Pocic did last year. I think Clap will also have a stellar season at center. Good luck Will!

Actually in Destin Coach Orgeron blamed the OL for the lackluster play against Alabama and the rest of the losses. Said the focus is on recruiting an OL that can block Alabama.
