ESPN's Greg McElroy ranks Oklahoma redshirt junior OT Bobby Evans as the top offensive tackle in college football.
Evans (6'5/301) is making the switch from right to left tackle after LT Orlando Brown left for the NFL. Already with 26 starts under his belt -- he started all 14 games last year -- Evans will use his experience to help make the transition to protecting his quarterback's blind side. The rest of McElroy's OT list include's Trey Smith (Tennessee), Jonah Williams (Alabama), David Edwards (Wisconsin), and Greg Little (Ole Miss). Evans teammate Ben Powers appeared on McElroy's offensive guard rankings at No. 2. Aug 27 - 6:42 PM

Sam Khan Jr. of ESPN reports that redshirt junior Bobby Evans is likely to replace Orlando Brown at left tackle last year.

Evans started all 14 games at right tackle last year, and has 26 starts under his belt in his time at Oklahoma. Brown was one of the best offensive lineman in the country last year, and is very likely to be a first-round pick this April, so it won't be easy to replace his production. Evans has shown flashes of brilliance as a Sooner, however, so it may not be as big of drop off as other schools would experience when losing an Outland Trophy finalist.

ESPN's Mitch Sherman named Oklahoma Ts redshirt junior Orlando Brown and redshirt sophomore Bobby Evans the best offensive tackle duo in college football.

Last year, Oklahoma ranked No. 1 nationally in QBR, No. 2 in yards per game, No. 3 in yards per pass attempt and No. 4 in third-down conversion rate. Brown is a potential Rd. 1 pick in the spring. Evans, meanwhile, is the son of former OU basketball player Bobby Joe Evans. The 6-foot-4, 316-pounder started the last 12 games last year. "Individually, they're both really good players," new OU coach Lincoln Riley said. "Orlando has gone from becoming a really good player to a dominant player. He's got one of the most elite mentalities of any player that I've coached. He's a dream offensive lineman with his competitiveness and his nasty streak, his attitude and the chip on his shoulder."
