Who's Your Starter: Left Tackle

QB: Austen Arnaud (So.)
RB: Alexander Robinson (So.)
TE: Derrick Catlett (Jr.)
WR: Marquis Hamilton (Jr.)
WR: RJ Sumrall (Sr.)
WR: Sedrick Johnson (Fr.)

OK, we have our first new guy in the Who's Your Starter lineups in the form of Sedrick Johnson. Johnson is ISU's top incoming recruit this year, and there's been some scuttlebutt flying around that he'll see the field. If he's as good as advertised, he's certainly got a chance to start.

We now get to the part of this experiment that's gonna be a little tougher - the offensive line. ISU returns four of their starters on the line, and the tackle position included two of the nicest surprises in Doug Dedrick and Ben Lamaak.

We've got two returners that should be expected to contend for the spot in Dedrick and Matt Hulbert. Adrin Haughton appears to be the lone line recruit that may press for playing time. Here's the vitals.

Dedrick: 6-4, 282, Sr.
Hulbert: 6-7, 287, So.
Haughton: 6-4, 323, Fr.

Dedrick was one of the more undersized tackles in the conference, but did a relatively good job. Hulbert has been reportedly pressing Dedrick in practice, however, and has been getting reps with the first team. The coaches have been saying ever since Haughton signed that he could be in the mix to play right away, and he brings considerable size to the table.

So, who's your pick? The senior with a full year of starting experience? The hard charging backup that seems to be impressing the coaches? Or the highly touted recruit with a Big 12 body as a freshman?
