POLL: Who will protect Beav QB's blind side?
the staff of BF.C
Posted Jul 14, 2009
LEFT TACKLE IS traditionally the position on the o-line where the best pass protector resides -- he protects the blind side of the quarterback. With a southpaw like Sean Canfield, it shifts to right tackle. But whether it's Canfield or Lyle Moevao under center, the tackle competition at OSU figures to be one of the key areas of focus in fall camp. And that leads us to ask you the question..
Who is your pick to earn the starting tackle job protecting the Beaver QB's blind side?
, who started seven games last season at tackle, and
, who played in three games, began the spring lined up on the ends.
But Oshinowo injured his knee in the spring game and the optimistic scenario now is that
wouldn't have him back and available until October at the earliest.
And Oshinowo, a junior, was locked in a battle with
for the starting tackle spot throughout the spring session. Line coach Mike Cavanaugh also said in the spring's final days that it was pretty much neck and neck between the two.
Headed into fall camp, it looks like Remmers and Kelly atop the depth chart at the tackle spot but which one will protect the QB's blindside when the Beavs open the season on Sept. 5?
Adding intrigue, Remmers and Kelly aren't full-on absolute starting locks the way
was last year. Kelly primarily figures to be challenged by junior
-- who sat out the spring following wrist surgery. Sophomore
could also work his way into the mix.
And of course the wildcard in all of this is incoming true freshman
. Riley has said if Philipp plays, he will start. If not, he will redshirt. It is rare a true freshman is ready to perform ably as a starter on the offensive line. But Riley and Cavanaugh think Phillip might just have the chops.
So here's the question: Pre-fall camp, who's your pick to line up at right tackle, if Canfield is the starter -- or left tackle, if Moevao is the starter?
Who's your pick at tackle to protect the Beav QB's blind side?
