The penciled in starters for the line this year, from left to right, are Chris Williams, Roberto Garza, Olin Kreutz, Lance Louis, and Frank Omiyale.
This means compared to the end of last year, we have 3 players either new to the line or new to their position, with Garza moving from right to left, Louis being promoted, and Omiyale moving from left guard to right tackle. Compared to the begining of last year, we have 4 new players or players playing a new position as Chris Williams started at right tackle. Olin Kreutz is the only member of the line to have played his position for last 12 months.
Also, Frank Omiyale has been struggling with false starts in practice, I can only imagine what that will mean for game time. Mike Tice said that Kevin Shaffer got the 2nd highest grade from him when he reviewed last years tape, but he got demoted for Omiyale for some reason.
The line has the potential to quite bad for the 2nd year in a row. Sigh.
