Offensive Line Rankings
32-21 | 20-11 | 10-1

20. Los Angeles Chargers

Pos. Starter
LT Russell Okung
LG Dan Feeney
C Matt Slauson
RG Forrest Lamp
RT Joe Barksdale

Depth: Chris Hairston, Max Tuerk, Spencer Pulley, Kenny Wiggins

In an effort to extend the career of 35-year-old Philip Rivers, the Chargers invested heavily in their offensive line this season, bringing in Okung and a pair of rookie guards in Feeney and Lamp. Depending on how quickly the rookies can get up to speed, improvement should be expected for this group as a whole.

19. Baltimore Ravens

Pos. Starter
LT Ronnie Stanley
LG Alex Lewis
C Ryan Jensen
RG Marshal Yanda
RT James Hurst

Depth: Nico Siragusa, Jermaine Eluemunor, De'Ondre Wesley, Matt Skura

The Ravens lost a pair of key players on the offensive line for the second time in as many offseasons, allowing Ricky Wagner to depart as a free agent and trading away Jeremy Zuttah. But top talents like Stanley and Yanda should keep things steady.

18. Detroit Lions

Pos. Starter
LT Greg Robinson
LG Graham Glasgow
C Travis Swanson
RG T.J. Lang
RT Ricky Wagner

Depth: Taylor Decker (inj.), Laken Tomlinson, Cyrus Kouandjio, Corey Robinson, Joe Dahl

The Lions made some excellent moves in the offseason, piecing together the right side of the line with Lang and Wagner. However, they seemed completely unprepared when Decker went down with a shoulder injury that will keep him out four to six months. Protecting Matthew Stafford's blindside could be a major problem.

17. Jacksonville Jaguars

Pos. Starter
LT Cam Robinson
LG Earl Watford
C Brandon Linder
RG A.J. Cann
RT Jermey Parnell

Depth: Patrick Omameh, Josh Wells, Luke Bowanko, Jeremiah Poutasi

Robinson was expected to begin his career at guard, but Branden Albert's surprise retirement at the start of training camp will force the rookie to start at left tackle. While this group lacks big names, they have the potential to be a solid unit. Run-blocking will be the priority in Jacksonville, as the offense shifts to a ground-and-pound approach with Leonard Fournette.

16. Carolina Panthers

Pos. Starter
LT Matt Kalil
LG Andrew Norwell
C Ryan Kalil
RG Trai Turner
RT Taylor Moton

Depth: Daryl Williams, Gino Gradkowski, Amini Silatolu, David Yankey

Will this be the year the Panthers solve their issues at tackle? Matt Kalil signed in free agency, but unfortunately his play doesn't match that of his Pro Bowl brother Ryan. Carolina is hoping a fresh start will help revive Matt's career. Second-rounder Moton has a potential to make an impact on the right side if he can win the starting job.

15. Denver Broncos

Pos. Starter
LT Garett Bolles
LG Ronald Leary
C Matt Paradis
RG Max Garcia
RT Menelik Watson

Depth: Allen Barbre, Ty Sambrailo, Michael Schofield, Connor McGovern, Michael Schofield

Denver could very well have one of the NFL's most improved offensive lines this season. Bolles is an incredibly athletic lineman who should be ready to man the blind side as a rookie, and the free-agent addition of Leary rounds out a strong interior.

14. Kansas City Chiefs

Pos. Starter
LT Eric Fisher
LG Parker Ehinger
C Mitch Morse
RG Laurent Duvernay-Tardif
RT Mitchell Schwartz

Depth: Jah Reid, Mike Person, Zach Fulton, Jordan Devey

Despite the lack of top-end talent, the Chiefs' line is a solid unit that many teams would be more than eager to have out front of their offense. The group, which excels in the running game, was significantly better early in the season before Ehinger suffered a torn ACL in Week 8. If he can return at full strength, they might move up this list.

13. Chicago Bears

Pos. Starter
LT Charles Leno
LG Josh Sitton
C Cody Whitehair
RG Kyle Long
RT Bobby Massie

Depth: Hroniss Grasu, Tom Compton, Bradley Sowell, Cyril Richardson, Jordan Morgan

Any reservations about the current state of the tackle position would be completely fair. As was the case en route to Jordan Howard's sensational rookie season, though, a dominant interior group should compensate nicely.

12. New Orleans Saints

Pos. Starter
LT Ryan Ramczyk
LG Andrus Peat
C Max Unger
RG Larry Warford
RT Zach Strief

Depth: Terron Armstead (inj.), Senio Kelemete, Khalif Barnes, Chris Watt, Landon Turner

A shoulder injury keeping Armstead out for the next few months is a crushing blow to a Saints offensive line that had the makings of a top-flight unit. But with plenty of talent still in place throughout, including a strong replacement option in first-round rookie Ramczyk, the drop-off could be mitigated.

11. New England Patriots

Pos. Starter
LT Nate Solder
LG Joe Thuney
C David Andrews
RG Shaq Mason
RT Marcus Cannon

Depth: Antonio Garcia, Cameron Fleming, Ted Karras, Conor McDermott

A weak link at left guard is the only thing keeping the Patriots out of the top 10. Having one of the savviest quarterbacks in the league helps, but veteran offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia has quickly reshaped New England's front five into one of the most reliable blocking units in the league. If Mike Gillislee emerges as the lead back, he'll love running behind the right side of this line.
