After the Colorado Buffaloes made much-needed additions to their offensive line this offseason, UTEP transfer Justin Mayers will be one to keep an eye on, according to Pro Football Focus, as he is the program’s highest-rated returning interior offensive lineman.

PFF recently announced the top 10 returning interior OLs in the Big 12, and Mayers’ 78.5 grade from last season ranked fourth in the conference. He is also CU’s only interior OL to make the top 10. Baylor boasted three linemen on the list, Texas Tech and Cincinnati had two, and Kansas and UCF each had one.

The 6’4″ and 315-pound Mayers transferred to Colorado in December after playing the last two years at UTEP. In those two seasons, he posted a 86.3 PFF pass block rating and allowed only two sacks in 846 pass-blocking snaps.

While Conference USA certainly isn’t part of the Big 12, it’s still a sight to behold when any Division I Football Bowl Subdivision conference puts up numbers like that.
