Everyone wants to write in Tyronne Green as the instant replacement for Kris Dielman on the offensive line. He stepped in for Dirty Diel last season and did well in the starting lineup.

Green was taken in the fourth round of the 2009 draft out of Auburn. He started 8 games last season and started another 7 games the season before. It sounds like he has put in a lot of work this offseason and he wants to take over that starting role.

Going into training camp, Green will be given every opportunity to be the starter on the left side. He will be given competition from Brandyn Dombrowski though.

Dombo did awful filling in at left tackle last season, but he still seems capable at left guard. He has been on the roster since 2009 also, after signing as an undrafted free agent out of SDSU. He has started 15 games for the team all over the line.

This will be one of the battles in camp to keep your eyes on. We don’t have the anchor in Kris Dielman on the roster anymore, so the starting gig is up for grabs. Who will be the starter going into the season?
