2021 CFN Preseason All-America Team: Offense


CFN 2021 All-America Offensive Guards

Please note: We’ll change this if needed as the preseason depth charts come in. There might be some shuffling on various O lines in fall camp.

CFN 2021 First Team All-America Offensive Guards

Marquis Hayes, Sr. Oklahoma
The 6-5, 324 pounder has grown into a mainstay on the OU offensive line. A great guard recruit out of Missouri, he worked his way into a starting role in 2019 and took things up a few notches as a run blocker for the 2020 offense. With his size and experience, the expectations are through the roof.

(OT) Josh Sills, Sr. Oklahoma State
Oklahoma State landed a ready-made all-star through the transfer portal. The 6-6, 320-pound Sills was an All-Big 12 performer at West Virginia, missed most of his junior year, transferred, and turned into a rock no matter where he played on the Cowboy front.

He could work at tackle – all forgiveness for putting him among the guards if he ends up on the outside – but he’ll be special if he ends up in the interior, too.

CFN 2021 Second Team All-America Offensive Guards

Emil Ekiyor, Jr. Alabama
The Alabama offensive line was going to be amazing last year, but the 6-3, 324-pounder completed it with a stellar year at right guard. He might not be quite as tall or long as the NFL scouts might like, but he’ll be the bulldozer who anchors another great front five.

Xavier Newman-Johnson, Sr. Baylor
 At only 6-2 and 315 pounds he doesn’t have the length or the overall size the next-level scouts are into, but he’s a blaster of a blocker who can work at either guard spot or center. Good on the move and with a great base – along with his experience – he’ll be a force for what should be an improved Baylor O.

8. Cade Mays, Sr. Tennessee
