Georgia Tech has fifth-best offensive line in ACC

Georiga Tech has the fifth-best offensive line in the ACC, according to a ranking on Facebook by ESPN’s David M. Hale.

The Tech offensive line — part of the Yellow Jackets’ triple-option offense — followed Boston College, Wake Forest, Clemson and NC State, respectively, on Hale’s list that was based on stats on returning starts courtesy of Phil Steele.

“We know, it's all about the system, right?” Hale wrote. “Sure, that's partially true. But last year, Georgia Tech effectively turned over its entire backfield, and yet the offense didn't miss a beat. That's a credit to Parker Braun and Co., who certainly benefit from a system geared toward success, but manage to execute that system well week in and week out.” 

Below are Hale’s full rankings of the ACC’s best offensive lines:
