My apologies for posting these a day late -- blame it on Russell Wilson
-- but it's time to break down the Big Ten offensive linemen entering the 2011 season.
Rather than list the top 10 across the three position groups, I've decided to go a different route: top five players at each spot
. Despite losing standout linemen like Wisconsin's Gabe Carimi and John Moffitt, and Penn State's Stefen Wisniewski, the Big Ten returns several of the nation's top players at their positions.
Center might be the Big Ten's deepest position, while the league also boasts several standout tackles. The guard spot is a bit thin.
