53 * Josh Meek (6-1, 274, Sr.)- Started the first 8 games of the 2006 season at tackle before suffering an ACL injury. Finished spring drills in a dead heat for the starting position with fellow senior Paul Bridges.
66 Paul Bridgers (6-3, 268, Sr.)- Has seen action in just 3 games during his career but came on strong during the spring and finished in a tie with veteran starter Josh Meek in the battle for the left tackle starting position.
60 Austin Milke (6-3, 260, So.)- Rising sophomore has a solid future ahead of him at Navy.

Right Tackle

75 * Andrew McGinn (6-1, 255, Jr.)- During 2006 McGinn saw action in 11 games and started the final 5 games in the season. He will battle Ricky Moore for the starting right tackle position when pre-season drills start in August.
68 Ricky Moore (6-4, 283, Jr.)- Converted defensive lineman who played well with the first team when Andrew McGinn was injured during the spring. Either Moore or McGinn could emerge as the starter for the 2007 opener at Temple.
64 Mike Von Bargen (6-5, 272, Jr.)- Von Bargen has yet to see the field during a game for Navy. He has to potential to develop into a top-notch lineman for Navy.
