- C: Boss Tagaloa, Sam Marrazzo, Duke Clemens
- RG: Chris Murray, Baraka Beckett, Josh Carlin

The Spring Game was not a traditional “us vs. them” setup as head coach Chip Kelly said he did not have enough offensive linemen to field two teams. Instead, he had the Bruins run an offense vs. defense format.
The issue with depth on the O-line will be remedied this fall as the Bruins welcome in four new players, one of which, Sean Rhyan, should add some immediate punch to the line.
Last season, the offensive line made massive improvements, and a few individuals got better during spring, so despite the lack of depth, they should continue to improve, especially with players like Boss Tagaloa, Chris Murray, Jake Burton, and Michael Alves (all returning starters) leading the charge.
What will help this line improve even further is the development of players like Alec Anderson, Jon Gaines, and Baraka Beckett.
