Top opponents for Texas in 2017, No. 49: TCU LT Joseph Noteboom

Posted July 15th, 2017


The countdown to kickoff is on. Over the 100 days before Texas takes on Maryland, we’re counting down the 100 best players the Longhorns will face in 2017. This series is all about impressing your friends at pregame tailgates and watch parties, so grab a notepad and buckle up.

Who is he?

With 26 starts under his belt, Joseph Noteboom is TCU’s most experienced player. The senior already experienced being a leader in 2016, and under his tutelage the Horned Frogs were the top pass-blocking team in the Big 12 according to Pro Football Focus. The 6-foot-5, 322-pound left tackle from Plano was a big reason why.


What should the Longhorns watch for?

It will be up to Noteboom and the rest of TCU’s experienced offensive line to set the tone for the offense. All of the pieces are there, and running back Kyle Hicks already proved he can be a 1,000-yard rusher. A little more consistency from quarterback Kenny Hill would go a long way, and with guys like Noteboom around he won’t have many excuses. Right tackle is the only spot where TCU needs a new starter, so that might be a place for opposing teams to exploit.

Previous encounters

TCU rushed for 309 yards and four touchdowns on the way to a 31-9 victory over the Longhorns in 2016. Noteboom had key blocks on three of those scores.
