Ranking the 5 best Offensive Linemen in the ACC for 2012.

Ah we are looking at the offensive linemen now. These are the guys in the trenches that never get any recognition. Well we are about to highlight the best ones in the ACC.

Completed Rankings

Running Backs | Quarterbacks | Wide Receivers |

Tight Ends | Defensive Linemen | Linebackers |

Cornerbacks | Safeties | Special Teams

1) Omoregie Uzzi, Georgia Tech

Omoregie Uzzi is the perfect offensive lineman for Paul Johnson’s triple option offense. At 6-3 300 lbs he’s strong enough physically hold his own against just about D-Lineman he faces, but Uzzi is quick enough to get out and block in the run-heavy system.

Uzzi will anchor what may be Johnson’s best offensive line since he’s been at Georgia Tech. He’s expected to be picked in the first 3 rounds of the NFL draft.

2) Jonathan Cooper, North Carolina

North Carolina has a couple of talented offensive linemen that make this list. Jonathan Cooper is the first one. The offensive guard is 6-3 310 Lbs and some consider the senior to be an even better NFL prospect than Uzzi. He has 35 career starts and has been praised for his solid footwork. He was a 2nd-team All-ACC lineman last year. He should be a first teamer this year.

3) Oday Aboushi, Virginia

Virginia always seem to put out quality offensive linemen and Oday Aboushi is another one. He’s athletic and at 6-6 and 310 lbs has good size. He’s has the potential to be a 1st or 2nd round NFL round draft pick, but will need to cut down on some penalties that have hurt him in the past.

4) Dalton Freeman, Clemson

Dalton Freeman is the unquestioned leader of Clemson’s offensive line. Freeman is 285 lbs which seems a bit light for an elite center, but Freeman gets things done. He was a first-team All-ACC player last season, and is considered a middle round NFL prospect. He’s the kind of blue collar player every coach likes to have.

5) James Hurst, North Carolina

Here’s the lone junior on the list James Hurst of North Carolina. That’s quite a 1-2 punch with Hurst and Cooper. Hurst is a 6-7 310 lbs lineman who is just starting to scratch the surface of his High School All-Star potential. He’s a gifted player that was a freshman All-American and 2nd-Team All-ACC player his sophomore season.
