Throughout the off-season, Bryan Bulaga has been receiving attention as one of the best offensive tackles in the country. In the past few days the Bulagattention has been raised up a notch.

Outland Trophy Watch List
Yesterday, the 40-player Outland Trophy Watch List was announced. The Outland Trophy is annually awards to the nations best "interior" lineman. (I guess offensive tackles are considered interior here.) Iowa's Bryan Bulaga was one of 8 offensive tackles to make the cut and one of 4 players from the Big Ten.

CFN - Preseason All-Americans Offensive Tackle
College Football News went through and ranked the top 25 players at each position including its picks to be All-Americans. At offensive tackle, CFN listed Bulaga as the 4th best and 2nd Team All-American. Iowa's other OT Kyle Calloway was also at the list at #14. (Side note: no other Hawkeye made the list as a top 25 player at their respective position...kind of surprising with Spievey, Angerer, Donahue, etc.) Bulaga also landed on CFN's list of the overall top 200 players coming in at #80.
