San Francisco has top offensive line

Below are the updated offensive line rankings. These are based on grading each player at each position, and creating a composite total for each team.
Left tackles count the most, followed by right tackles and then centers. Guards count the least, and we also award points for one additional spot to account for additional blocking (tight ends and fullbacks).
Grades are what we expect going forward, not for what they’ve done in the past. With Carolina, for example, it doesn’t receive a good grade at center for Pro Bowler Ryan Kalil. He’s out for the year, so they now get a low grade at that spot.
San Francisco seems to have the best offensive line, followed by New England, Baltimore and Houston. At the other end of the scale, the Rams, Cardinals and Colts grade out with the worst lines.
To see the individual player grades, see the chart at the Facebook page (I’ll post it in a few minutes). Each player receives a grade from 5 (outstanding) to 1 (lousy). A “3” is an average-type player.
