Ranking the Most Important on Offense: No. 15

Sooners Illustrated continues to roll on with the countdown, now in the Top 15.

No. 15:

Player: Josh Aladenoye

Position: Starting right tackle

The rundown: At 6-foot-4, 322 pounds, Aladenoye is currently listed as the second heaviest player on the team next to starting right guard Tyler Evans. He has improved immensely since redshirting in 2009 and playing last year. With that said, he saw some good action last season when he played in the last 12 games also in a reserve role. His most productive game was a five-knockdown performance in a 52-0 blowout victory over Iowa State. He played the most snaps of his year (20) against Florida State, another blowout victory by a score of 47-17.

Expectations for 2011: While it hasn't officially been announced, he is widely believed to be the candidate to start the season at right tackle in Jarvis Jones' absence. Jones, who underwent surgery for a torn meniscus, won't be available at the start of the year, which will trigger a battle mainly between Aladenoye and Daryl Williams for the starting spot. And more than likely, Aladenoye will win it.
