An offensive cornerstone.

Long considered one of the best offensive linemen anywhere in the Mountain West, Boise State offensive tackle John Ojukwu is back on our countdown of the conference’s best for the third straight year.

And why not? Believe it or not, 2021 marked the first time that Ojukwu was named a first-team all-conference selection after holding down the left tackle position for Boise State in 12 starts as others on the offensive line battled injuries. That meant playing 875 snaps in all, according to Pro Football Focus, and posting a 70.1 overall grade (including a pass-blocking grade of 86.1) that was the best of his four-year career to date.

Ojukwu now enters 2022 with 37 career starts, a pair of postseason all-Mountain West nods, and a Mountain West championship on his resume. Are another title and a spot in the pros on the horizon?
