Top 2019 Pac-12 offensive linemen: Oregon loaded with standout offensive linemen

Counting down the top offensive linemen in the Pac-12 heading into 2019.

NCAA Football: UC - Davis at Oregon Scott Olmos-USA TODAY Sports
  1. Walker Little Jr. T Stanford - Little should turn into the next Stanford All-American and first round draft pick on the line as long as he is healthy. In fact, he might have the most upside of any Stanford offensive linemen I can remember since the start of the Harbaugh/Shaw era.
  2. Trey Adams Sr. T Washington - Adams was right there with Little as an All-American and first round pick before he went through injuries that kept out for more than a year. He’s 6’8 300 plus with the grace of a power forward and will be one of the nation’s top left tackles if he can get back to 100 percent.
  3. Calvin Throckmorton Sr. T Oregon - The four-year starter has been a stalwart for the Ducks for nearly half a decade now and can excel at any spot on the line. He’s a leader for their entire offense and one of the most-versatile and tough linemen in the conference.
  4. Nick Harris Sr. C Washington - The 6’1 Harris isn’t a giant like Adams or Little, but he’s a tough as nails bulldog in the middle of Washington’s offensive line who might be the best run blocker in the Pac-12. He’s another four-year starter who has experience mixing it up against some of the best defensive linemen nationally.
  5. Abraham Lucas So. T Washington State - The next in line of standout NFL offensive tackles from Mike Leach’s Cougars. Lucas was All-Pac-12 as a freshman and has the skills to continue where first round pick Andre Dillard left off. Maybe the best pass blocker in the conference.
  6. Jake Hanson Sr. C Oregon - Hanson might have the best NFL potential of any player on this list other than Little. He’s experienced, can really move for a 300-pound guy, and strong in the middle.
  7. Shane Lemeiux Sr. G Oregon - Like Throckmorton and Hanson, he’s a four-year starter that’s grown with the resurgence of the Oregon program. He’s athletic for an inside linemen and has the same versatility and senior leadership that Throckmorton has.
  8. Frederick Mauigoa Sr. C Washington State - The Cougars are known for their offensive tackles, but Mauigoa is one of the best centers they’ve had in quite some time. He has helped grow their run game and is also excellent in pass blocking in Leach’s scheme.
  9. Cohl Cabral Sr. C Arizona State - One of the reasons Eno Benjamin was so good in 2018 was the progression of Cabral into an All-Pac-12 player. He will lead their line in 2019 as a tough, interior player who can open up holes in the run game.
  10. Penei Sewell So. T Oregon - Sewell might have the most upside of anyone on this list other than Little, but I want to see him prove it more against strong competition before I slide him up. He could easily be first-team All-Pac-12 at the end of the season.
  11. Dallas Warmack Sr. G Oregon - The Alabama transfer is massive and slid in perfectly with the Duck offensive line last year. He’s one more year better and ready to keep things pushing forward on the inside of the Oregon offensive line.
  12. Will Sherman So. T Colorado - He was quietly the best freshman lineman in the Pac-12 last year and earned All-Pac-12 honors. He should continue to progress and looks like a future first-team all-conference player.
