Right Guard

74 Ben Gabbard (6-4, 297, Sr.)- Gabbard has seen action in 26 career games and after a strong spring performance he is slated to take over the starting right guard position which was vacated after teammate Antron Harper was moved to center.
67 Curtis Bass (6-1, 275, So.)- Rising sophomore who worked hard during the spring and is slated to serve as the No. 2 right guard for the Mids.
77 Jeff Lenar (6-6, 268, So.)- Lenar, who possesses an excellent frame, has the tools to become a monster lineman someday for the Mids.

Left Guard

72 Anthony Gaskins (6-1, 281, Jr.)- Gaskins did not start a game in 2006 but saw extensive action in several contests and played at least some in all 13 games. He finished spring drills as the Mids starting left tackle.
73 Chad Peterson (6-4, 271, Jr.)- Has played sparingly during his career but in the spring he battled his way to the No. 2 left guard for the Mids.
79 Osei Asante (6-1, 270, So.)- Promising sophomore who adds depth for Navy at guard.
