Vanderbilt's offensive line has been in a state of flux under Derek Mason. Injuries and attrition have prevented the Commodores' blockers from putting together a full season as a cohesive unit in recent seasons.
Now, a 6'7, 305-pound tackle could help end that trend. Mason and the Commodores added a major piece to their depth chart when Devin Cochran faxed his letter of intent to Nashville on National Signing Day.
Cochran is a consensus three-star recruit whose size is reminiscent of another lauded Commodore offensive line recruit - current left tackle Andrew Jelks (6'6, 305). His long arms and solid frame made him a sought-after prospect across the Power 5 conferences. Cochran chose Vanderbilt over scholarship offers from Florida, Georgia, Miami, South Carolina, Louisville, Duke, Northwestern, and Tennessee.
Here are some highlights from the 2014 season that helped convince Derek Mason to pursue the big Georgian.
Cochran was the tenth member of the Vanderbilt class of 2016 to fax in his letter of intent on National Signing Day.
