SEC Network analyst Cole Cubelic ranks the conference's top offensive lines for 2020
It’s tough for most analysts to accurately grade or evaluate the offensive line position. While that’s true, Cole Cubelic is not your average college football analyst.
The former Auburn offensive lineman has been working for the SEC Network for a number of years and in addition to his duties serving as a sideline analyst in the fall and as a radio host throughout the entire year in Alabama, Cubelic will often share video clips and highlights featuring the players on the field that typically get the least amount of respect.
While offensive linemen may not receive much love from the casual fan, true football fans know the offensive line is the most important position when it comes to consistent success on the football field.
