Fanbuzz.com recenlty names its top 5 offensive lines in the nation. And there was a suprise there for Red Raiders fans. Desptie going 4-8 last season, Tech was on the list.
Here is what they had to say about the Red Raiders' OL:
Texas Tech Red Raiders – Le’Raven Clark*, Alfredo Morales*, Jared Kaster*, Baylen Brown*, Poet Thomas
Texas Tech fell off last season to 4-8, but if there’s a bright spot for Kliff Kingsbury’s Red Raiders it’s the offensive line. Four starters return from a line that ranked 22nd in adjusted line yards and 2nd in adjusted sack rate in 2014 on Football Outsiders, with the only replacement being sophomore Poet Thomas likely to step in at right tackle. Texas Tech was 13th in the nation in sacks allowed at 1.08 per game and 20th in tackles for loss allowed at 4.75 per game.

The the other top OLs were: Georgia, Michigan State, Ohio State and Alabama.
