Preview of the 2017 Oklahoma State Offensive Line

Three starters and four letterwinners return on the offensive line, so there is a general sense that this group can be effective, but the thought does still linger that the Cowboy offensive line still has room for improvement. New coach Josh Henson should help with that.

Senior tackle Zach Crabtree (34 career starts) and senior center Brad Lundblade (27 career starts) are the most experienced members of this bunch and redshirt sophomore guard Marcus Keyes is a promising up-and-comer who was an everyday starter as a redshirt freshman a year ago. Crabtree is a 2017 preseason first-team All-Big 12 selection by Lindy's, who tabbed both Lundblade and Keyes as preseason second-team All-Big 12 honorees as well.

Senior Larry Williams was OSU's starter at right guard for the first five games of 2016 before suffering an injury. If the spring was any indication, he has reclaimed his starting position. The other tackle position opposite Crabtree received a boost in the offseason with the addition of redshirt senior Aaron Cochran, a graduate transfer who played in 28 games and started 16 at California.

Beyond the starters lies a largely unproven group of backups that includes tackles Dylan Galloway and Teven Jenkins, guards Lemaefe Galea'i, Arlington Hambright and Shane Richards and center Johnny Wilson.
