part 1 of 3

THE BEST OFFENSIVE LINES


1. Dallas Cowboys

Projected Starters: LT Tyron Smith, LG La’el Collins, C Travis Frederick, RG Zack Martin, RT Doug Free

Key Backups: Ronald Leary, Joe Looney

Not only are the Cowboys one of the most talented offensive lines in football but they also have the advantage of all five starters from last season back ready to go this season. La’el Collins learned on the fly last season and could become a dominating lineman in his second season. Tyrone Smith is already a beast on the left side and the two together will open up huge holes for the running game. The right side is not quite so sexy but Zach Martin and Doug Free are no slouches as well and when you add all five starters up, this is the best offensive line in football and it could develop into one of the best offensive lines in history. Yes they are going to be that good in 2016.


2. Arizona Cardinals

Projected Starters: LT Jared Veldheer, LG Mike Iupati, C Lyle Sendlein, RG Evan Mathis, RT D.J. Humphries

Key Backups: Earl Watford, A.Q. Shipley, Cole Toner - rookie, Evan Boehm - rookie

The Arizona Cardinals became an elite offensive line last year led by veterans Jared Veldheer at left tackle, Mike Iupati at left guard and Lyle Sendlein at center. Evan Mathis, a former All-Pro was signed in the offseason and will start at right guard. Losing Bobby Massie who started 30 of the past 32 games at right tackle could hurt but the Cardinals were willing to let him walk because first round pick D.J. Humphries from the 2015 NFL Draft should be ready to step into starting right tackle. Those five look like a powerful group. The team also drafted a pair of linemen, Evan Boehm from Missouri (4th round) and Cole Toner from Harvard (5th round) who will provide depth along with Earl Watford and A.Q. Shipley.


3. Cincinnati Bengals

Projected Starters: LT Andrew Whitworth, LG Clint Boling, C Russell Bodine, RG Kevin Zeitler, RT Eric Winston

Key Backups: Christian Westerman - rookie, Jake Fisher, Cedric Ogbuehi,

The Bengals starting five from last season are all back which makes them one of the finest offensive lines in the NFL. A big part of strong offensive line play is the cohesiveness and comfortability that the offensive line has and how they fit into the scheme. The Bengals starting five together ar every good and there is enough depth here as well to fill in an injury or two if needed. It all starts at left tackle where Andrew Whitworth is a terrific All-Pro talent. At right tackle, veteran Eric Winston continues to hold onto his starting job. Behind those two players, two young, hungry tackles, Jake Fisher and Cedric Ogbuehi are awaiting their turn in the spotlight. Both are exceptional talents who can really get after it. There are in good shape as well at the guard position with two veterans holding down the fort while 2016 draft pick Christian Westerman will push for playing time. Put it all together and the Bengals offensive line will continue to shine this year


4. Oakland Raiders

Projected Starters: LT Donald Penn, LG Gabe Jackson, C Rodney Hudson, RG Kelechi Osemele, RT Menelik Watson

Key Backups: Austin Howard 6, Vadal Alexander - rookie, Matt McCants, Jon Feliciano

The Raiders are trending upwards in a number of key areas including along the offensive line. Donald Penn is one of the best left tackles in the NFL and his experience and talent anchor this group. Gabe Jackson is a very good guard on one side with free agent signing Kelechi Osmele (formerly of the Ravens) at the other guard position. The only real battle taking place here is between Austin Howard and Menelik Watson and it is a 50/50 guess at this point which player will win out. I love how this group fits together and the Raiders will be able to run block and pass block equally well. Rookie draft pick Vadal Alexander from LSU should provide decent depth as well.


5. Minnesota Vikings

Projected Starters: LT Matt Kalil, LG Alex Boone, C John Sullivan, RG Brandon Fusco, RT Andre Smith

Key Backups: Phil Loadholt, T.J. Clemmings, Mike Harris, Willie Beavers - rookie, Joe Berger

I love the Vikings moves to shore up the offensive line this offseason and it could move this unit from a good group to a great one. Matt Kahil finally reached his potential last year, looking terrific manning the left tackle slot. The former 4th overall pick is now playing at a level he was supposed to be at coming out of USC. John Sullivan is injury prone but when healthy is a top-ten center in the league. The team needs him to stay healthy and lead from his center position. As a 4th round pick last year, T.J. Clemmings was not supposed to start at right tackle but a serious injury to Phil Loadholt forced him into the lineup and he did a decent job considered his surprise start. I gave the starting nod to free agent signee Andre Smith but without question, Clemmings is in the running for the job. Both Alex Boone, brought in from the 49ers and Brandon Fusco are very good guards. When you put it all together, this starting group can be super this year if the parts come together.


6. Washington Redskins

Projected Starters: LT Trent Williams, LG Shawn Lauvao, C Kory Lichtensteiger, RG Brandon Scherff, RT Morgan Moses

Key Backups: Ty Nsekhe, Spencer Long, Austin Reiter, Josh LeRibeus

I really like where the Redskins are going with their offensive line. It all starts with Pro Bowl left tackle Trent Williams who is one of the finest in the game and perhaps the best pass protector in the NFL. 2nd year player, a 5th overall pick in 2015 Brandon Scherff started all sixteen games as a rookie and did a very good job. There is room for improvement there as well and he has the skill set to slide anywhere along the offensive line and dominate. He is a nasty, get after it lineman and is going to be a Pro Bowler very soon. A 3rd round pick in 2014, Morgan Moses was supposed to lose the right tackle job to Scherff but he won the job in camp, sliding Scherff to guard. Moses has really improved in his first couple of seasons. Shawn Lauvao was the starter last year until injury struck and he will be given first chance to win his job back. He will be pushed by Spencer Long though who filled in nicely. Kory LIctensteiger is a dependable veteran center but he will be pushed in camp but Austin Reiter. Put all the parts together and the Redskins have themselves a top-seven group here.


7. Carolina Panthers

Projected Starters: LT Michael Oher, LG Andrew Norwell, C Ryan Kalil, RG Trai Turner, RT Daryl Williams

Key Backups: Mike Remmers, David Yankey, Gino Gradkowski, David Foucault

For the Panthers, the offensive line begins with the best center in the game today in Ryan Kalil. Athletic, nasty and intelligent, he is the glue that holds this group together. Trai Turner is a 2014 3rd round pick who has started 25 games in his first two seasons and really came into his own last year, at times dominating the line of scrimmage. Mike Remmers started at right tackle last year for several of the games but the journeyman will likely be pushed to the bench by former 4th pick, mountain of a man, Daryl Williams. He is big and nasty and should win the starting job. Michael Oher had a very strong season at left tackle for the Panthers. Many thought he may be done as his play had gone south prior to signing with the Panthers but he allowed only four sacks and took three penalties all season. The Panthers have a very good, albeit relatively unknown guard in Andrew Norwell and the undrafted lineman at times dominated last year. He is better than most realize still and may become a household name soon. This starting five looks very capable of dominating football games.


8. Baltimore Ravens

Projected Starters: LT Eugene Monroe, LG Ronnie Stanley - rookie, C Jeremy Zuttah, RG Marshal Yanda, RT Rick Wagner

Key Backups: John Urschel, Alex Lewis - rookie, Ryan Jensen, Vlad Ducasse, James Hurst

The Ravens were a strong unit last year but injuries throughout the offense limited the points and yardage for the team. The offensive line however played well and will help the team move the ball again this season with a healthy Joe Flacco. The Ravens did lose a big piece when Kelechi Osemele left in free agency but the team filled the hole well by adding Notre Dame standout tackle Ronnie Stanley. There is a chance that Stanley emerges as a right tackle or even left tackle as well but he will certainly start somewhere and putting him inside will take pressure off of the youngster. Marshal Yanda may be the best linemen in the NFL and he is certainly the best guard. He is a nasty, physical, agile lineman in the prime of his career. Jeremy Zuttah is a capable center who was injured last year but should be ready to go. Rick Wagner is a former 5th round pick that has 33 career starts. He is a serviceable tackle but if the Ravens can find another option at guard, Stanley or even 4th round pick Alex Lewis of Nebraska could push for the starting job. Eugene Monroe is a very good tackle but likely not deserving if the massive salary. He will be expendable one day and Stanley will slot in. Put it all together and this group looks like a top-ten group capable of elevating from there.


9. Miami Dolphins

Projected Starters: LT Branden Albert, LG Laremy Tunsil - rookie, C Mike Pouncey, RG Billy Turner, RT Ju'Wuan James

Key Backups: Billy Turner, Sam Young, Kraig Urbik, Dallas Thomas, Jamil Douglas

Branden Albert did a terrific job at left tackle for the Dolphins last year but he will be pushed really hard by rookie Laremy Tunsil who may be the most talented player this year in the draft. I slid Tunsil inside to left guard as I like when a team has two dependable tackles, letting a young player learn inside for a season or two but I also would not be surprised to see him start at tackle. He is an elite player. Mike Pouncey is a Pro Bowl center in the prime of his career. I like the improvement of Ju'Wuan James and the former 19th overall pick is really coming into his own. He should continue to improve this season. If the Dolphins find a dependable right guard, they have a potential top-five group here but I see a big weakness at the position. I have put Billy Turner in as a starting guard but it is wide open between several players. Turner is a 24-year old former 3rd round pick and if they can get him into the starting unit, this is a young group with excellent potential. No matter who starts at right guard though I love the talent and direction of this group.


10. Tennessee Titans

Projected Starters: LT Taylor Lewan, LG Sebastian Tratola (rookie), C Ben Jones, RG Chance Warmack, RT Jack Conklin (rookie)

Key Backups: Jeremiah Poutasi, Sebastian Tratola (rookie), Andy Gallik, Brian Schwenke

Quietly, the Tennessee Titans have now built one of the best offensive lines in football and the only real question here is how quickly can the new parts mesh with the returning players. The Titans drafted a rugged, physical nasty tackle in Jack Conklin who will be the perfect fit at right tackle. Taylor Lewan is already a strong left tackle and together they will become one of the best, young tackle combinations in the NFL. Bryon Bell started at right tackle for the Titans a year ago out of necessity but was going to slide over to starting guard. Unfortunately for him and the Titans, he suffered an injury and will miss the entire season. The other new addition for this group is at center where Ben Jones will start after coming over from the Houston Texans. He should be an upgrade at the position.
