I have spent the season watching Auburn play and I see little hope in the near future. There is not a highly athletic lineman in the bunch. I'm sure they are all good Auburn guys, but that doesn't win games any more. None of these guys could start anywhere else and almost all of them would be third teamers, at best.
Tega is playing tackle because we have no one else. Driscoll was a good player at his previous college, but that doesn't work in the SEC, especially with his injuries.
Harrell and Horton have been banged up so often the past two seasons they are physically unable to perform and I have my doubts they will ever return to their previous levels of play.
Troxell had possibilities but his two knee injuries have so limited his mobility he is now ineffective at the level we need him to be.
Kim and Brahms are just not capable players due to injuries and also due to lack of physical ability.
As far as the rest, if they had a lot of promise, they would have seen a good bit of playing time already.
Folks it is bleak now and even bleaker for down the road. More games will not erase the shortcomings but will only make them more visible to other teams. I am afraid it will take 2 to 3 years of good recruiting to give us a good line, albeit with no reliable depth. Unfortunately Auburn has allowed Gus to hire people he can command rather than quality football recruiters and coaches who can find and develop players. Fortunately his meddling with the defense has been less of a problem.
