Post-Spring Baylor Depth Chart

A look at the Post-Spring depth chart for the Baylor Bears at the offensive line.

Right Tackle:

  1. Troy Baker 6-6, 310, So.

  2. Pat Colbert 6-5, 270, RdFr.

Analysis: With Ivory Wade moving to center and Cyril Richardson moving to an interior offensive line position, the Spring was an open competition for the tackles spots on bot he left and right side. Baker had an outstanding spring camp and it should come as no surprise that the sophomore heads into the fall with the starting spot.

Left Tackle:

  1. Spencer Drango 6-6, 305, RdFr

  2. Kelvin Palmer 6-4, 280, Jr.

Analysis: It is somewhat of a surprise that redshirt freshman Spencer Drango was named first string left tackle. Drango brings an incredible skill set, and is a prototypical left tackle, however, he heads into the season with zero experience. Junior Kevin Palmer manned the position at times last season and seemingly will have to fight his way back up the depth chart to get it back.


  1. Ivory Wade

  2. Stephan Huber

Analysis: Wade likely has increased his NFL draft stock by moving to the center position. The former offensive tackle is now the anchor of the Baylor offensive line. He plays mean and aggressive and is joining a long list of successful centers to play for Art Briles. Huber will play a reserve role in this his junior season.

Left Guard:

  1. Cyril Richardson

  2. Tim Smith

Analysis: Both Richardson and Smith have made the switch to different positions. Last season, Richardson manned the tackle position for the Bears. Tim Smith was listed as a center for most of the spring camp for Baylor. Smith missed most of the Spring because of injury making Richardson the sure-fire starter at guard.

Right Guard:

  1. Cameron Kaufhold

  2. Jake Jackson

Analysis: Kaufhold was held out of spring drills due to injury, but will return to the offensive line as the starter. Jake Jackson had a solid spring and can play most anywhere on the line. Jackson may be penciled in as a reserve right guard, but he will see plenty of snaps during the fall.
