Position: Offensive Line
Size: 6-6, 290 lbs
High School: Friendswood
Classification: Redshirt Freshman
Recruitment: Seaver Myers was a 3-star recruit who was ranked as the 76th best offensive tackle in the class of 2012. He is one of the top recruits from the June Jones era and turned down offers from Texas A&M, Colorado, Houston, and Iowa State to attend SMU.
2012 Review: Myers was impressive in practices as a true freshman last season, but suffered a hand injury in the season opener vs. Baylor. He missed the remainder of the season and was awarded a medical redshirt.
2012 Grade: N/A
2013 Outlook: Myers is penciled in as the starter at right tackle for now, but there will be plenty of competition across the inexperienced offensive line this season. Senior Ben Gottschalk is one the leaders of the offense and should stabilize the left side of the line.
Myers, Chauncey Briggs and Chase Walling are all redshirt freshman competing for playing time at the other tackle spot. Taylor Reich could have challenged for the position, but he has had problems staying healthy. If he's healthy during fall camp, he could give Myers a run for his money.
But Myers has the clear edge in the competition and is expected to be the starter there all year. He has good size and a quick first step that Wes Suan and Timmy Chang raved about throughout this spring. Myers needs to work on being more of a compact player and not overextending his arms when reaching for outside rushers, but he should be able to succeed if given the opportunity.
