Two experienced guys in Nathan Scheler and Tyler Haycraft return as starters for the Tigers on the offensive line.  They will anchor the offensive attack and be the key to success in bringing along the other three new starters who fill massive shoes in Ryan Karrer (Lindsey Wilson), John Kurtz (Cincinnati) and Austin Askin (Eastern Illinois).

New offensive line coach Adam Billings has made an immediate impact this off-season in helping bolster the technique and toughness of this group.  His head coaching background will certainly be an important asset to the coaching staff and really assist in the development of the big guys leading the way for the Tiger Offense.

At the Tight End position, three guys will see quality minutes: Davis Kannapell, Noah Gruneisen and David Palmer.  They can all block well and step into the flats to receive a pass from Noah Houk if needed as well.
