There’s no getting around the fact that one of the reasons the Pac-12 has struggled nationally in recent years is the Conference’s struggles to produce NFL-level offensive linemen.

The Pac-12 has a really nice group of linemen coming back in 2023 and some solid transfers.

It was actually hard to cut this list to just 12, but I did my best to sort it out.


1. Joshua Gray, Junior, Oregon State

Gray emerged as one of the best linemen in the Conference as a freshman and keeps backing it up.

This is his year to officially be the best OL in the Pac-12.


2. Troy Fautanu, Junior, Washington
Washington OT Troy Fautanu | Kim Grinolds/Dawgman
Fautanu might be the one lineman who can make the battle for the top an argument with Gray.

He was damn near flawless last year with the Huskies and could be even better in 2023.


3. Sataoa Laumea, Junior, Utah

Sataoa is a multi-year All-Pac-12 player and super versatile. Expect him to continue being a rock and plowing the way for the Utes in 2023.


4. Jonah Monheim, Junior, USC

Monheim emerged in 2022 as a great pass blocker in Lincoln Riley’s scheme. Expect him to rack up honors in 2023.


5. Roger Rosengarten, Sophomore, Washington

Rosengarten protected Michael Penix’ blind side last year and did a great job. He might have the most potential of any lineman on this list.


6. Taliese Fuaga, Junior, Oregon State

Fuaga took home All-Conference honors last year as one of the best underclassmen linemen in the conference. A key part of the Pac-12’s best offensive line.


7. Jake Levengood, Senior, Oregon State

The veteran in the middle of Oregon State’s powerful offensive line. Probably the best center in the Conference.


8. Jordan Morgan, Senior, Arizona

Morgan had a great season last year before he got hurt. He should come back and be a big-time veteran for the Wildcats.


9. Justin Dedich, Senior, USC
Trojan OL Justin Dedich | Anthony Scott/Acscottphotography
Dedich is back for one more year as a veteran on the Trojans offensive line. He has started a ton of games and is a powerful blocker in the middle.


10. Jarrett Kingston, Senior, USC

The Trojans grabbed Washington State’s best offensive lineman. He should slide in right at USC and make a great impact.


11. Heneli Bloomfield, Junior, Oregon State
Oregon State OL Heneli Bloomfield | L.E. Baskow/Las Vegas Review-Journal
The former Utah State transfer made a big impact as a starter last year in Corvallis. One of the best interior and run blockers in the Conference.


12. Ajani Cornelius, Junior, Oregon
Oregon OL Ajani Cornelius | Rhode Island Athletics
The Rhode Island transfer is expected to step right in at Oregon and be a standout. One of the better transfers going up in rank this year in the transfer portal.
