All week Scout.com - South will be updating the rankings for the southern players. The states included are Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Arkansas. This is a look at the Top Offensive Linemen in the South.

Wide Receivers
Quarterbacks
Running Backs
Tight Ends

Corners

Linebackers
Defensive Ends

By far the deepest position in the deep south this year is the offensive line. I keep a mental note of the players I've scouted through the years (4), and who I think is the best at each position. 

Andre Smith would take the #1 spot in any of the past four classes, and the scary part is, Sam Young would get #2.

Here is a look at the South's Deepest Position.

Rather than list the players' height, weight, and speed, I have listed the school they are committed to if any. Click on their player page to see more information including scouting videos and schools of interest.

If you have any feedback on the formatting, or questions about the rankings, please come see us on the Scout Recruiting Message Board:
