Texas A&M Football’s Kenyon Green will be the only returning offensive lineman

Kenyon Green is the most obvious choice for this list. Why? Last year, the offensive guard was a unanimous All-American and the leader of a unit that was a finalist for the Joe Moore Award. He was also a semifinalist for the Outlander Trophy, given to the best interior lineman in the country.

The Aggies will lose four of their offensive lineman. Meanwhile, Green will be shifting from guard to tackle, so there will be some serious changes in College Station on the offensive line. That said, this should allow him to become even more of a leader for this team.

Green is now the mentor for every player that will be filling in on this offensive line. After the type of season that he had in 2020, this unit will live and die by the veteran offensive lineman.

Even though offensive line may not be the most glorious position, this man has the strongest chances of winning All-American honors out of anybody on this team. He has the physical skills, experience, and motivation to make this happen.

In all likelihood, he will find himself as an early-round pick in next year’s NFL Draft, so keep your eyes open after the coming season.
