OC Dave Patenaude’s outlook on Tech’s offense for the season is bullish, and perhaps this time it might have more credence. One significant reason is that the offensive line, which last year often struggled in pass protection and was decent in the run game, figures to be demonstrably improved.

It appears that Tech will go with a front five of, from left tackle to right tackle, Zach Quinney, Jack DeFoor, Mikey Minihan, Ryan Johnson and Jordan Williams.

Quinney, DeFoor and Johnson figured to be starters; Minihan has won out at center over Kenny Cooper and William Lay, and Williams has evidently won out at right tackle in a competition with Charlie Clark.

Johnson, the grad transfer from Tennessee, has brought the experience of 19 starts with the Volunteers and earned a leadership role.
