The Texas A&M Football team has arguably the best offensive lineman in the country
3.) Kenyon Green: When coming up with this list, I sat down and came up with positives and negatives that each player would encounter on their path to earn eventual All-American honors after the 2021-22 season.
For Leal, it was simple — his All-American honor was based on a ceiling he hadn’t reached yet. For Wydermyer, it relied on the fact that he will no longer be the only big-bodied option for Texas A&M’s offense. For Green… well, there really isn’t much to say.
The argument could be made that Green being the only returning starter on this offensive line could make the unit as a whole worse, making his job more difficult. That said, this could also turn around the other way, making him look even better than he actually is. Green is already a proven offensive lineman, and if history tells us anything, players at his position don’t regress without a significant injury.
I am also fairly confident that those who vote on postseason awards don’t always put the time and effort into judging offensive linemen. In all likelihood, they’ll use the opinion that they’ve been predisposed to for their final judgment.
If you’re looking for a player who seems likely to live up to their preseason All-American standard, look no further. Kenyon Green is that player.
