    *LSU's Will Arnold will be in the top five if and when he's healthy
    2006 CFN Preseason First Team All-Americans

    George Robinson, Jr. Oklahoma
    At 6-5 and 330 pounds, Robinson is a big blocker in the interior who can move linemen around without much of a problem. He's not as bulky anymore after starting his career at well over 360 pounds, and he could play tackle if needed. While "Duke" could still used some more seasoning in pass protection, he's coming into his own as an All-America caliber run blocker.

    Shannon Tevaga, Sr. UCLA
    Tevaga's UCLA’s best overall lineman and a strong candidate for post-season honors. At 6-3 and 316 pounds, he’s big and powerful with the nasty streak to overwhelm opponents at times, particularly on running downs. A starter in 31 consecutive games, Tevaga is the undisputed leader of this unit.

    2007 CFN Preseason Second Team All-Americans

    Andrew Crummey, Sr. Maryland
    The star of a good Terp line is the senior right guard, who earned All-ACC honors as the team's best run blocker. Despite beefing up to 301 pounds, he kept his quickness becoming a more effective pass protector. He can play center if needed

    Jordan Grimes, Sr. Purdue
    The 6-3, 325-pound Grimes is one of the Big Ten's best run blockers and doesn't quite fit the Purdue mold. He's a mauler playing in a finesse offense, and he's adapting as he became a great pass protector last season. Tremendously strong, he simply overwhelms most tackles.
