Is Wyatt Milum the Best Left Tackle in College Football?

West Virginia has developed another top offensive lineman.

This year, all of the attention was on center Zach Frazier on the West Virginia offensive line. He cemented himself as one of the nation's top centers and has positioned himself nicely to become a late first or early second round pick in the 2024 NFL Draft.

Next year, that attention will be shifted to the anchor of the o-line, left tackle Wyatt Milum. According to Pro Football Focus, he is the nation's fifth-best returning left tackle in college football behind only Will Campbell (LSU), Kelvin Banks Jr. (Texas), Jonah Monheim (USC), and Ajani Cornelius (Oregon).

In 2023, Milum allowed zero sacks, zero QB hits, and just nine pressures on 337 pass block snaps. 

"Milum has been a starter for all three of his years in Morgantown, spending his freshman campaign at right tackle before moving to left tackle for the past two seasons. His 74.2 pass-blocking grade in 2021 ranked second among true freshman Power Five tackles," Max Chadwick writes. "Since Milum flipped to left tackle in 2022, his 82.5 grade is a top-15 mark among all tackles in college football. This past season, his 89.6 pass-blocking grade on true pass sets placed second among FBS tackles, ranking behind only Houston’s Patrick Paul."

West Virginia quarterback Garrett Greene showed support for the protector of his blindside, labeling him as the best at his position.
