Doering: Kentucky’s offensive line will “own” Auburn

Kentucky’s Big Blue Wall drew plenty of praise in the preseason, but Chris Doering thinks they might be the best offensive line in the entire country. Last night, the former Florida Gator turned SEC Network analyst heaped praise on Kentucky’s offensive line, which he believes will “own” Auburn’s defensive line, which will be without 2020 NFL Draft picks Marlon Davidson and Derrick Brown.

“It’s going to be a problem replacing that type of production,” Doering said of Davidson and Brown. “The other problem they’re going to have is they’re going up against one of the best offensive lines in the entire country. That’s right, I said it. When was the last time that Kentucky was able to be mentioned in the same breath as having the best offensive line in the country? I think they have a better offensive line than Auburn does and I think they’re actually going to own Auburn’s defensive line up front.”

Kentucky’s starting line features experience and talent, including First Team All-SEC selections Drake Jackson and Darian Kinnard and Second Team All-SEC tackle Landon Young. Jackson, Young, and Luke Fortner were all freshmen in 2016, which Doering believes was a pivotal year for the unit.

“Those guys have developed a mentality that they’re physical, they’re nasty. It started back in 2016 when Drew Barker got hurt and now it has built to the crescendo in 2019 when they’re the leading rushing team in the SEC. That’s who they are and they’re going to impose their will on every opponent they play this year, starting with Auburn in Week 1.”

Yeaaaah, buddy. For more on the Big Blue Wall, check out our position preview from last week.

    Best O line in the country means we have no excuse to lose a game you think? Doering picked Uk to win the east last season also .

    Who do y’all see as our “it” guy this year? The guy who has that X factor like Snell/Allen in ‘18 & Bowden last year? I’m looking forward for Terry Touchdown to showcase some of that razzle-dazzle!

      If we can just line up and block and tackle the hell out of people, which I think we can, we might not need an “it” guy. Just a total team effort in the ultimate team sport.
