I sure do like all of these offers going out to 6'8 fellers. Would be nice to have a monster pipeline, a more B1G looking O line. 

Yes. Current guys are tall too.  Maybe the idea is we can hide the 5-11 to 6-1 QBs and RBs back there and get that real option run game going?   Lol.  We can only dream I know.

My hope is to not be tired in the 4th. And to have a big O line to march the ball down the field. 

Size is good but I’d rather they be 6-4 or 6-5 with quick feet. Seems like the 6-8 guys are often lead footed.  I like guys who can stay low enough to keep DL from getting as much lift etc.  i do know blocking techniques have changed.  Just so they have quick arms/hand movement and power.  I’m old school so what do I know on O line methods.  Lol.  I learned what little I know from Tenopir about 3 decades back.

Yeah I hear ya I was born in 85 so most of my football knowledge is from what TO did. Anyway my arm chair coach analysis is that with the bigger bodyied o linemen it will just be harder for them to be pushed around and they will have a longer wings spand so that will help keeping defenders a bay from our QB. Also d linemen will get tired playing against a bigger bodied linemen. again, I know it is all surface value evaluation but there is some truth to it as well.

Well you don’t expect O linemen to get pushed around.  They do the pushing.  Hopefully.   That’s been the problem when you are pass blocking (effectively) on run plays, holes only open if the defenders create one.  I know it’s more complicated than this, but too much of the time, our line has been the retreat and protect mode vs the aggressor attacker.  No pancakes - just Mrs Buttersworth syrup maybe!

Hey I was wondering how you guys would feel if we had a general conversation thread in each of the recruiting years.... I personally don't like having conversations like the one we are having in a prospect thread because every time we post I think there is new information on the prospect.  Food for thought. 

You mean like this? 

 

It exists, just depends if people keep themselves honest. :)
