Texas Football: predicting the starting lineup for 2022

Texas’ starting offensive line is one of the biggest unknowns for the 2022 season.

Eric Nahlin of Inside Texas shed light on a potential starting line. Nahlin is deeply connected to the program, and perhaps has all five starters correct. Time will tell.

Providing different starters, we will take a look at what the entire Texas starting lineup could look like for the 2022 football season.

Texas’ elite freshman class will undoubtedly play a role in the Longhorns success this season. Multiple freshman offensive linemen, perhaps up to five, could see significant playing time at some point this season.

Additionally, Texas brings back starters along the defensive line who could finally put things together this season.

Here is an early look at who I believe could crack Texas’ starting offensive and defensive lineup.
