How good was the LSU OL in 2019
Not trolling guys, very serious question.
I've read that their OL was number one.

I've also read That Joe Burrow was the most pressured QB in CFB last season.
If he was he handled the pressure extremely well.
Just a serious question. What do you guys think.?

They were good enough but make no mistake Burrows ability helped

Wasn't a lot of continuity. One of our tackles was out 5 games for weed. Our true freshman phenom guard got hurt at the beginning of the year and Ed Ingram didn't get cleared till after the texas game. Not sure how many games we had with the same starting lineup but I would guess not many

Honestly, I think our blocking scheme and play calling were finally on the same page. Spreading defenses out helped they line a lot, but they were good.

I think they were above average, but not great. Scheme and Burrow sliding in the pocket hid deficiencies.

They were good but I think Burrow's elite ability handle and escape pressure made them look better than they realistically were.

They won the award for the top OL in CFB:
LSU OL wins Joe Moore award for Top OL
quote:

“In an unprecedented recognition of physicality in pass protection, Coach Cregg’s unit separated itself in the eyes of the voters by their effort and strain in the run game, and by how consistently they demonstrated that pass protection is not passive,” said Aaron Taylor, CBS college football analyst and co-founder of the Joe Moore Award. Taylor played guard and tackle at the University of Notre Dame for the Award’s namesake, the legendary offensive line coach Joe Moore.


quote:

“All of this year’s finalists displayed the award criteria in impressive fashion, but LSU made a statement by how well they played together as a group and brought physicality to everything they did,” said Randy Cross, three-time All-Pro with the San Francisco 49ers, College Football Hall of Famer, CBS college football analyst, and JMA voting committee member. “LSU showed a tone-setting attitude in both pass protection and in their run blocking that really caught the attention of the 200 plus member voting body that has collectively played and coached this position for well over 800 years.”

LSU threw the ball over 500 times last season, the year prior Burrow threw under 400 times.

Right, and Delpit won the Jim Thorpe Award. It doesn’t mean he was the best player at his position this year.

Oh so then I guess Joe wasn’t the best player in the country and Chase wasn’t the best WR? Man are you salty

Salty about what? It’s pretty clear the LSU didn’t have the best OL last year

Perfectly said. Burrow's ability to feel pressure and avoid it is the only reason the sacks allowed number wasn't much higher. Any other recent LSU qb would have been sacked more than double. Burrows escapeabilty was insane. I felt Burrow and CHE had to do things on their own alot of time. O-Line talented, but I'd even go on to say this was not a top 10 unit, IMO. Burrow and Clyde were just that good. Dont get me wrong, I wish we were bringing back our Juniors, but I don't see significant drop off next year.

So you think Baker was the best DB in 2018?

They were good but not the best, Oregon probably had the best o-line in CFB last year. LSU was just the sexier team so they got the hardware.

Well they were wrong

Delpit won the award because he didn’t win it last year. Don’t get me wrong, he didn’t suck this season.. but Delpit wasnt even the best DB on his own team. I would say Okudah had a better season, too
