Before the Sooners' 31-14 win over Iowa in the Insight Bowl, Jake Trotter and Brandon Chatmon analyzed each Oklahoma position group. Now, the SoonerNation staff is giving each position a grade for its performance in 2011.

Grade: B+
The line was terrific protecting Landry Jones until giving up six sacks in OU’s final two games. The run blocking was sporadic, but the emergence of guard Adam Shead fueled the effectiveness of the Belldozer. Shead is back, along with four starters up front. Next season, there’s no reason this shouldn’t be the best line OU has had since 2008.
