Ahh doesn't sound too far fetched ... Froholt is a lock .. if Wallace has a good year he should be drafted if not will make a camp somewhere off just measurables .. wouldnt be completely suprised if the other got a camp invite but it's a long shot for him

Why?

Well, if by "shots" you mean maybe a quick undrafted free agent tryout, then maybe so.  But we don't have 3 NFL linemen on our current roster, not by a long shot.

But then that's like, my opinion man.

I agree.

Froholdt, Wallace, and Gibson should all have a shot.  That doesn't mean all will be drafted but I think they all have a good chance of being picked up.  I could see 2 of the 3 getting drafted.

Drafted, free agent, good enough to be a great college OL.

If Gibson can replicate what he did in 2016 (especially against Florida) then he will get a chance.

I think Gibson, and the rest of our line, all suffered from poor coaching last season.

If our oline is anything beyond serviceable I will be happy.

We're gonna be alright if everyone quits getting hurt.

I agree with this. I won't be surprised to see Froholdt take over at Center and Gibson moved out to LT. That gives us three solid anchors for the line. The key will be building depth. We need Merrick to to get healthy and take over at RG. When Jackson returns mid-season, he needs to be healthy enough to provide meaningful depth if not take back a starting position either at LT or LG. Hays, Wagner, Clenin and Clary need to provide quality depth and be ready to start some early. Ideally you could still redshirt the freshman after letting them play early, but we've got to stay healthy from here.

LT Gibson, Wagner
LG Clenin or Hays, then Jackson (at mid-season if needed)
C   Froholdt, Hays, Robinson (redshirt)
RG Merrick, Clary, Hall
RT Wallace, Wagner, Gatlin (play 4 early then redshirt)

plays on offense will develop quicker, so that's a plus.

Froholdt will get drafted. Wallace could with a good year. Gibson will probably get a UDFA shot.

I can see that

Froholdt could give us back to back first rounders. Widely regarded as one of the top 5 interior OL players.

Wallace has NFL athleticism to be a 2nd to third rounder, but given his past play and perhaps his mental processing speed, I'd say 5th is as high as he could work his way up to right now. Good news for him, is that if he plays this year only as well as he played last year, with no improvement, I'd bet he gets a UDFA deal and probably lasts at least to the pre-season based on his measurables and solid play (which his play has been solid, just not up to his pedigree).

Gibson I'd be surprised if drafted. He just isn't going to have the athleticism to draw much interest. Think of David Hurd, a former walk-on LT for the hogs. Didn't allow a single sack all season, but his career as an UDFA was extremely short lived. He wasn't very strong on run plays, nor was he particularly athletic. He just worked hard, had good technique, and... BA threw the ball into the stands at the first whiff of any pressure that season which meant that Deon Stewart could have played OL at 161 pounds and probably not given up any sacks. Gibson is, or at least was, at least a solidly strong player, so he could last longer in training camps than Hurd. But unless his pro day shows a lot more athleticism than I've seen, i'd say he, like most college athletes, will have done well to make sure he actually gets a degree.

No doubt.  No more delayed action short yardage plays or play action on obvious passing downs.

But, uh, I guess everyone playing football has a shot.
