Welcome to the third installment of Florida Gators “Bye Week Breakdown”. This time: the offensive line.
Sacks Allowed: 4
Negative Rushing Yards: 40
While Jeff Driskel might not be performing up to par, one might think to blame the offensive line, but that is not the case. The o-line has protected Driskel well, only giving up four sacks through two games. In relation, Driskel was sacked 39 times last season.
DJ Humphries had an ailing MCL; he was forced to sit in the second half against Miami because it was sore. While out, Max Garcia shifted over to left tackle while Ian Silberman took over left guard.
While center Jonotthan Harrison hasn’t been overpowering, he is a valuable asset in the run game and, as previously mentioned, has done a great job defending Driskel.
There was a lot of switching on the front line against Miami. “Right guard” Kyle Koehne saw some snaps at center in addition to his regular RG; he did well handling the Canes’ pass rush at both positions.
Tyler Moore sprained his ankle at the end of the Miami game but was said to be ready for Tennessee in Muschamp’s telecast.
