Offensive Line

Left Tackle – Dion Dawkins/Marshall Newhouse

Left Guard – Wyatt Teller/Ryan Groy

Center – Ryan Groy/Russell Bodine

Right Guard – John Miller/Vladimir Ducasse

Right Tackle – Conor McDermott/Jordan Mills

Like receiver, there is a lot going on here as well. The only for-sure starter here is Dion Dawkins after his promising rookie season and the trade of Cordy Glenn. On the interior of the line is where things really begin to get confusing. I believe Ryan Groy will be starting somewhere. Either at center or one of the guard positions, he is a starter to me. If he is at guard, Bodine gets the start at center.

Teller is very interesting to me. He has talent and ability and I think a great opportunity to start with an open competition almost everywhere on the line. Either Miller or Ducasse will duel it out for one of the guard positions, and I think Miller will have a new opportunity with an open competition and a new offensive coordinator.

And at right tackle, another open competition! Jordan Mills has been the starter for several seasons and has done a decent job, but the position can be upgraded. Marshall Newhouse signed as a free agent but is not much of an upgrade either. For me, Conor McDermott is a player to watch. If his game continues to develop, he could earn the starting spot.
