For Lobo football, more depth equals more hope; plus the Journal’s MWC predictions

Along the University of New Mexico offensive line, there is an important battle occurring at right tackle between three players.

Heading into the Lobos’ home and season opener on Thursday against Houston Baptist, Jacob Jankoviak is leading against redshirt freshmen Greg Brown (6-foot-1, 290 pounds) and JerMarques Bailey (6-6, 332).

Jankoviak is an experienced 6-2, 283-pound redshirt senior who has a slight edge on the athletic Brown and the big Bailey to fill the vital vacancy that Teton Saltes left at right tackle.

However, it’s not so much the O-line battle that is intriguing.
