Offensive Lines: Updated offensive line rankings

Checking in on the league's offensive lines since the magazine, there have been a few developments, but relatively little in the way of major injuries or surprises. The Bucs, Browns, Packers and Saints look like they have the league's best offensive lines. The Steelers, Panthers and Giants look worst.   more »


Offensive Lines: Updated Offensive Line Rankings

Checking in on the offensive line rankings for the first time in several weeks, there's been a whole lot of movements. Injuries are up this year, not only to top wide receivers around the league (most notably), but linemen too. Looking at the carnage, the NFL's Eastern divisions have been hardest hit.  more »


Offensive Lines: Updated offensive line rankings

San Francisco and Philadelphia are two of the NFC's best teams, among the favorites in their respective divisions (either them or Seattle and Dallas, respectively). But both have suffered significant setbacks to their offensive lines that could negatively impact their chances.   more »


Offensive Lines: Updated offensive line rankings

It's not unusual for players to get hurt during preseason workouts or games. But in 2020, we've got the unique development of players who will either miss games due to COVID-19, or are already opting out of the entire season. And those developments have impacted the initial offensive line rankings.   more »


Offensive Lines: Jets, Washington battling with star linemen

The story of the week (maybe the season) with offensive lines is teams versus players. The highest-profile battle is Washington and Trent Williams, but there's another ugly one with the Jets and Kelechi Osemele. Both involve ongoing off-field battles.   more »

Offensive Lines: A Central concern

The Chargers lost a bizarre heartbreaker last week, with a couple of touchdowns overturned in the final minute and then Melvin Gordon's inexcusable fumble. But the story with this offense's struggles lately is the loss of center Mike Pouncey (pictured). It's destroyed this offensive line.   more »


Offensive Lines: Can KC protect Matt Moore?

Kansas City clobbered the Broncos last night, but the big story was Patrick Mahomes going down with a dislocated kneecap. Early reports have him missing a minimum of three weeks, and needing surgery after the season. The insertion of journeyman Matt Moore into the lineup could highlight Kansas City's offensive line issues.   more »


Offensive Lines: Left tackles ranked

We're a month into the season. Taylor Lewan is now back. Russell Okung and Trent Williams seem to be out of the picture. And there are other injuries and whatnot. Decent time to take a look at the left tackle landscape again -- which guys are best at their jobs these days.   more »


Offensive Lines: Philly is special

Watching last night's Eagles-Packers game, where Jordan Howard made those of us who dismissed him as a barely functional slug in the preseason look bad, it struck me that a great offensive line can make an ordinary player look really good. And the Eagles have a great line.   more »


Offensive Lines: Come back, Taylor Lewan

Watching Marcus Mariota absorb 9 sacks last night, it occurred that the Titans could really use left tackle Taylor Lewan. He was suspended for the first four games, and the Titans have proceeded to allow 17 sacks in three games. That's a 91-sack pace over a 16-game season, which probably won't continue. Probably.   more »


Offensive Lines: Rough week for right tackles

There's not really a catchy term for the league's right tackles. They're not protecting the blind side (except for with left-handed quarterbacks, that is). They usually don't make as much money as the left tackles. But they're important, which teams discover when they don't have them.   more »


Offensive Lines: Texans Trade Ton for Tunsil

So anything noteworthy happen for offensive lines around the league since last week? Oh yeah: Houston gave up two first-round picks and a second-round pick for Miami's starting left tackle Laremy Tunsil. This moves Miami's line from 32nd all the way down to 32nd. Houston gets a decent boost.   more »

Offensive Lines: A Central problem

Left tackles make the most money and get the attention of the occasional book and movie starring Sandra Bullock. But the Center position is similarly important, for its relationship with the quarterback and involvement in calling out blocking assignments. Looks like the Patriots are going to find out just how important.   more »


Offensive Lines: Panthers tackle hurt! Quarterback, too

Panthers fans held their breath as a key figure in their 2019 season was knocked out of last night's exhibition game. Second-round tackle Greg Little suffered a concussion; fortunately he has two weeks to get cleared for Week 1. Question is which quarterback Carolina's offensive line will be protecting, with Cam Newton suffering a foot/ankle injury in the same game.   more »


Offensive Lines: Cowboy up

The Cowboys have hovered at or near the top of our rankings in recent years. They've had three of the league's very best players at their positions in Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick and Zack Martin. But Frederick didn't play at all last season, sidelined due to Guillian-Barre Syndrome, and the line took a step back.   more »
