Texas A&M Football’s offensive line overhaul may change the strategy
The Texas A&M Football team doesn’t have a ton of production leaving the program this season, but one area that is seeing a lot of turnover is the offensive line. A few guys are headed off to the NFL, leaving four spots open for the taking.
The reason that I’m bringing this up is to point out that there will be regression on the offensive line. The unit last year was incredible and it’s hard to see that success replicated in 2021.
That said, Isaiah Spiller found all of his success behind the same offensive line over the last two seasons. They were experienced and proven, and it paid off for the Aggies’ top runningback. But things may change with an offensive line overhaul.
It won’t be a cakewalk for Spiller anymore. As a guy who reads blocks well, he may also require a strong offensive line to find success from his position. I’m not saying he completely relies on the offensive line, but he is the type of back who thrives when he gets the right blocks.
Achane, on the other hand, has the speed and quickness to thrive without said offensive line. If the new unit has a rough start to the season, wouldn’t you want a speedy, quick player to jump in and get a few extra yards on every play?
I’m jumping to a few conclusions here, but Achane has to get the edge in the case that this offensive line ends up taking a big step backward
