Counting down the Pac-12’s top offensive linemen.

NCAA Football: Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl-Alabama vs Washington Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports
  1. Trey Adams Sr. T Washington - Adams was on his way to being a Top 10 pick in 2018 before he hurt his knee. The 6’8 335 left backle is a rare talent that should be the conference’s top lineman as long as he comes back healthy.

2. Nate Herbig Jr. G Stanford - The massive (6’4 350) interior lineman made first team All-Pac-12 last year and is the most-talented player on a really good Cardinal offensive line. The best interior offensive lineman in the conference.

3. Kaleb McGary Sr. T Washington - The other 6’8 tackle on the Huskies. McGary might be even more of a physical specimen than Adams and should be first team All-Pac-12 and possible a first round pick.

4. Jesse Burkett Sr. C Stanford - Another excellent interior lineman for the Cardinal. He’s a killer in the run game and keyed numerous big runs for Bryce Love last season.

5. Walker Little So. T Stanford - Little might be the best lineman of anyone on this list in the long run as a 6’8 athlete who started at left tackle as a true freshman. He should be ready to move towards All-American status as a sophomore.

6. Andre Dillard Sr. T Washington State - The Cougars have become one of the country’s best producers of standout offensive tackles. Dillard is the next in line as an All-Pac-12 stud that’s an excellent pass blocker.

7. Toa Lobendahn Sr. C USC - He’s had a very hard time staying healthy, but he’s been great when he has been. He’s versatile and a veteran leader on an offense that really needs one.

8. A.T. Hall Sr. T Stanford - Progressed into one of the Cardinal’s best offensive linemen in 2017. He should get even better as their right tackle in 2018.

9. Chris Brown Sr. G USC - Brown is a fantastic run blocker and polished multi-year starter. He will be a key part of what should be a very strong USC offensive line.

10. Calvin Throckmorton Jr. G Oregon - This is Throckmorton’s third year as a starter and he’s turning into one of the conference’s best. He’s also a versatile player that can play tackle or guard.

11. Jake Hanson Jr. C Oregon - Another Duck lineman who was thrown into the fire early who has emerged as one of the best linemen in the conference. Hanson has NFL size and athleticism for a center.

12. Nate Eldridge Jr. C Arizona - Eldridge emerged as one of the best young linemen to play at Arizona in quite a while as a sophomore. He will be one of the conference’s best centers in 2018.
