Ranking the Most Important on Offense: No. 14

OU starting right guard Tyler Evans

Sooners Illustrated continues on with its countdown of most crucial offensive players.

No. 14:

Player: Tyler Evans

Position: Starting right guard

The rundown: The "Sloth," as his teammates call him, was a mainstay on the offensive line a year ago. He played in all 14 games, starting in 12 of those, including the last 10. Evans recorded season-highs of snaps (96) and grading out (83 percent) against Texas A&M and Texas Tech, respectively. In all, the heaviest guy on the team, at 6-foot-4, 326 pounds, saw 824 plays on the offensive line with 81 knockdowns.

Expectations for 2011: Again, he'll be a key component of the starting offensive line. Perhaps his role becomes even more important since fellow right side offensive lineman Jarvis Jones (tackle) is out with an injury. He'll be called upon to step up and be a leader with his experience from the past couple seasons, including 16 total starts in two years.
