Texas A&M football players who need to step up, No. 3: Kenyon Green. . . and the entire offensive line
I don’t really want to point the finger at Kenyon Green in this situation, as the All-American Texas A&M offensive lineman is still one of the best in the entire country. The former All-SEC offensive lineman is as talented as ever.
Unfortunately, the rest of the offensive line has been, well… complete garbage. More often than not, the Aggies’ offensive front has been blown up by three-man rushes. We saw this on display throughout the entire Arkansas game in a contest where it seems like the Razorbacks could have rushed a single guy and still rushed QB Zach Calzada.
The only reason why I point out Green specifically is that he does play a part in how this team plays. As a leader, he won’t turn them into the best offensive line in college football, but he can inspire them to play closer to his level.
Say what you want about Calzada and this offense — the bad performances start on the offensive line, which has been the worst unit on the team by a mile.
After a loss to Arkansas, Jimbo Fisher announced during his weekly press conference that offensive lineman Luke Matthews would be missing the remainder of the season, complicating this situation further. On the bright side, a handful of young guys will get valuable experience as the season progresses.
