Offensive Line

This is a position I felt very pleased with after a tough couple of weeks against Miami and Pittsburgh. Of course, Georgia Tech’s defensive line is a step down from the previous two mentioned.

Give credit where it is due. This unit stepped up on Friday night. The biggest concern I have is that they are still giving up too many negative plays. They gave up eight tackles for loss against Tech. That needs improvement.

The line did give up three sacks but none of which were the line getting beat as much as it was Cunningham attempting to run or holding the ball a bit too long. I was especially pleased with the interior. Robbie Bell had his best game of the year and Caleb Chandler and Cole Bentley are very good college offensive linemen.

Cam DeGeorge got more reps than I can remember in previous weeks. In particular, he was spelling Renato Brown at right tackle a fair bit.

All in all, a good game for this unit that blocked well in the run game and held up well in pass protection.
