Ranking the Offensive Lines
Bottom 12

21. New York Jets

Projected Starters: LT Ryan Clady, LG James Carpenter, C Nick Mangold, RG Brent Qvale, RT Breno Giacomini

Key Backups: Brian Winters, Brandon Shell (rookie), Ben Ijalana, Jarvis Harrison, Dakota Dozier

The Jets offensive line took a nasty hit this offseason with the surprise retirement of D'Brickashaw Ferguson, a strong left tackle. The team attempted to fill that major hole by trading for Ryan Clady from the Broncos but Clady has had a nightmare of a time staying healthy and on the field. When healthy, the 29-year old can play but he needs to prove he can stay fit and on the field to get excited about the left tackle slot. I love the Jets left guard and center positions as James Carpenter plus Nick Mangold do a super job there. However there is huge question marks on the right side and it is tough to know who will emerge as the starter there. If the Jets get that side figured out and Ryan Clady can stay healthy (both big question marks right now) then the Jets offensive line could elevate in the rankings but for now it is tough to get excited here.


22. San Diego Chargers

Projected Starters: LT King Dunlap, LG Orlando Franklin, C Max Tuerk (rookie), RG D.J. Fluker, RT Joe Barksdale

Key Backups: Matt Slauson, Chris Hairston, Trevor Robinson, Tyreek Burrell, Kenny Wiggins, Chris Watt

The Chargers traded for veteran center Matt Slauson this offseason from the Bears but then drafted talented rookie Max Tuerk from USC. They will battle it out for the starting center position and then the loser will battle for a starting guard role on the left side. The left side of the line features huge linemen King Dunlap and Orlando Franklin who are powerful but limited in space. I think Slauson would be an upgrade at guard as he is capable of more. D.J. Fluker is a former 1st round pick and a run mauler for sure. He can move guys back and open holes. Joe Barksdale is a former 3rd round pick of the Raiders who has bounced around and is a replaceable part at tackle. He can do a good job on straight ahead run blocking but is not a mobile player. The size here is impressive but the technique and athleticism (more important in my opinion are lacking). I think Tuerk taking over center and a more athletic lineman like Slauson taking over guard would improve this group.


23. San Francisco 49ers

Projected Starters: LT Joe Staley, LG Josh Garnett (rookie), C Daniel Kilgore, RG John Theus (rookie), RT Erik Pears

Key Backups: Zane Beadles, Fahn Cooper, Brandon Thomas, Trent Brown, Andrew Tiller, Marcus Martin

The leader of the group and the best player in this group is veteran left tackle Joe Staley who is steady and dependable. He has started 130 games and is still at an elite level. After him though this group gets very dicey. The 49ers made strides to improve that in the NFL Draft by selecting Josh Garnett in the first round and the Stanford standout will make this unit better. The other three slots along this unit are wide open however and none of the options are very appealing. I put rookie John Theus in as right guard with his upside but really, training camp and preseason games will decide those positions. The 49ers look very strong on the left side but center and the right side needs improvement.


24. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Projected Starters: LT Donovan Smith, LG J.R. Sweezy, C Evan Smith, RG Ali Marpet, RT Demar Dotson

Key Backups: Joe Hawley, Gosder Cherilus, Kevin Pamphile, Caleb Benenoch (rookie), Garret Gilkey

I wanted to rank this unit higher than I did and I think they can exceed the number 24 spot but I just cannot get too excited about how the pieces fit right now. I think the loss of Logan Mankins who retired may take them a year to settle and there will be some growing pains in 2016. I like the progress of young linemen Donovan Smith and Ali Marpet and if they continue their growth, this unit is capable of elevating in a hurry. There will be battles at the other three positions with several different combinations possible. There is potential here and training camp will be needed to sort this all out.


25. Seattle Seahawks

Projected Starters: LT Bradley Sowell, LG Rees Odhiambo (rookie), C Justin Britt, RG Germain Ifedi (rookie), RT J’Marcus Webb

Key Backups: Mark Glowinski, Garry Gilliam, Kristjan Sokoli, Terry Poole, Patrick Lewis

Honestly, the Seahawks offensive line is a mess right now in many ways. There are so many new parts, moving parts and unknown elements that I cannot accurately predict what will happen and how this will shake out. The reason they are ranked as high as 25 is simply that I have faith in their offensive line coach Tom Cable to get the job done. I do like rookies Rees Odhiambo and Germain Ifedi and injecting them into the lineup would help to jumpstart this group. There is too much uncertainty to expect more than mediocre in 2016.


26. Indianapolis Colts

Projected Starters: LT Anthony Castonzo, LG Le’Raven Clark (rookie), C Ryan Kelly (rookie), RG Denzelle Good, RT Jack Mewhort Key Backups: Jonotthan Harrison, Hugh Thornton, Joe Reitz, Joe Haig (rookie), Le’Raven Clark (rookie), Austin Blythe Other than rookie 1st round pick this year Ryan Kelly I don't see any elite talent in this group but they could exceed expectations. Anthony Castonzo is decent at left tackle while Jack Mewhort, a 2nd round pick last year is coming into his own at right tackle. I put rookie Le'Raven Clark into a starting role at guard as he is capable at guard or tackle but he will be in a battle with Jonotthan Harrison and Hugh Thornton for the starting job. Heck, even rookie Joe Haig may elevate to a starting role. If the youngsters can improve and grow together in a hurry, this could turn into a dependable line but more questions than answers at this point.


27. Los Angeles Rams

Projected Starters: LT Greg Robinson, LG Rodger Saffold, C Tim Barnes, RG Jamon Brown, RT Rob Havenstein

Key Backups: Isaiah Battle, Garrett Reynolds, Cody Wichmann, Andrew Donnal

The good news for the Rams is there is young potential in this group and if they find that potential, they could make huge strides this year. The bad news is this group has been injury prone, have struggled to find consistency and have not been able to reach that potential as of yet. Greg Robinson has top tackle potential and could be a good one if he figures it out. Injuries knocked out the right side linemen last year and both need to prove they can stay healthy and improve their consistency. The talent is there though. With experience and consistent work could come results here but for now I have no confidence that will happen in 2016.


28. Denver Broncos

Projected Starters: LT Russell Okung, LG Connor McGovern (rookie), C Matt Paradis, RG Max Garcia, RT Donald Stephenson

Key Backups: Ty Sambrailo, James Ferentz, Michael Schofield

There is not much to get excited about here honestly. Russell Okung's career has been derailed by injuries and the Broncos are praying he can find a way to stay healthy after picking him up from Seattle. Matt Paradis is alright at center and the same can be said for Max Garcia. Both are young enough to still improve but neither look to have exceptional abilities. Donald Stephenson was picked up from Kansas City and he will likely to start at right tackle. He only has 27 career starts though and is only an average talent in my opinion. I put rookie Connor McGovern in as a starter as the Broncos seem to be high on the kid but looking at this starting five would make my stomach a little queasy if I was Paxton Lynch learning how to play under center.


29. Jacksonville Jaguars

Projected Starters: LT Luke Joeckel, LG Mackenzie Bernadeau, C Brandon Linder, RG Jeff Linkenbach, RT Jermey Parnell

Key Backups: Kelvin Beachum, A.J. Cann, Luke Bowanko

The Jaguars improved on offense last year and the defensive upgrades look impressive this year. Everything appears to be in order for the Jaguars to ascend after a long, long time as a terrible football team. Everything that is but a poor offensive line group that does not appear to have much upside. Luke Joeckel is a decent tackle but certainly not in the top half at his position. Brandon Linder, a former 3rd round pick from Miami is beginning to show signs of being very good and he is becoming the leader of this group. Jermey Parnell had a pretty good season at right tackle and is locked in as a starter. It is anybody's guess who will earn the start at guard but the play there will be mediocre at best. I just don't see enough to get excited here.


30. Kansas City Chiefs

Projected Starters: LT Eric Fisher, LG Parker Ehinger (rookie), C Mitch Morse, RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, RT Mitchell Schwartz

Key Backups: Jah Reid, Jarrod Pughsley, Zach Fulton, Jordan Devey, Reid Fragel

The Chiefs offensive line is very, very young and could be a top-ten unit by 2018. Eric Fisher is a former first overall pick in 2013 and he is becoming a very good football player. The Chiefs picked up Mitchell Schwartz who did a great job in Cleveland. Mitch Morse was a late second round pick last year and started 15 games. He is still learning on the fly but the potential is there. I really dislike their current guard options and that combined with youth is why the grade is so slow but if the guard positions are stable and the youth continue to improve, this unit could climb the ranks in a hurry.


31. New England Patriots

Projected Starters: LT Nate Solder, LG Jonathan Cooper, C Bryan Stork, RG Joe Thuney (rookie), Tre’ Jackson, RT Sebastian Vollmer

Key Backups: Shaq Mason, Marcus Cannon, Shaq Mason , David Andrews, LaAdrian Waddle, Josh Kline

Often with the Patriots the sum of the parts is greater than the individuals and that will likely be true again this season. The coaching and schemes are so powerful in New England that it almost doesn't matter which player is slotted in along the line. That said, I wonder if it always possible to catch lightning in a bottle and at some point, running with subpar talent is going to bite the Patriots in their behind. It is all guess right now for the three interior linemen positions. If I told you I know for sure what is going to happen I would be lying. I don't really love any of the projected starters unless Nate Solder is completely over his ACL injury. If he is, he is a solid tackle but the rest of the line is a giant question mark. Of course with the incomparable Tom Brady throwing the ball, none of it seems to matter every year anyways.


32. New York Giants

Projected Starters: LT Ereck Flowers, LG Justin Pugh, C Weston Richburg, RG John Jerry, RT Marshall Newhouse

Key Backups: Bobby Hart, Byron Stingily, Adam Gettis

Ereck Flowers, the 9th overall pick last year learned on the fly last year and is going to be a very good tackle in the NFL. I don't think he is there yet but could emerge this season in his second season. After that I do not love what I see here although the center position looks pretty stable with the solid play of Weston Richburg. Justin Pugh struggled at tackle last year but is shifting back to guard where he should be more comfortable. The right side of the offensive line looks terrible to me and I don't see a good starting option on the roster at either right guard or tackle. Flowers, Pugh and Richburg gives the team hope but unless some magic happens on the right side in a hurry, this unit will be exploited.
