There is much to celebrate in offensive line land. Primarily, the rankings have been included in the positional rankings page, select at the bottom of drop-down here: FBG Rankings. The articles will continue but for the most up to date line rankings (mid-week changes etc), check the rankings page. It's an honor to be included among the greats like David Dodds, Sigmund Bloom, and Maurile Tremblay.
Readers ask questions (about Trent Williams, and others). Here are the responses:
Who are your three favorite Offensive Lines this year (and why)?
• New Orleans Saints – Great tackles in Terron Armstead, Ryan Ramzyck and if they need Andrus Peat, he can play there too. Second-round rookie center Erik McCoy (from Texas A&M) handled himself like a vet in his preseason debut, which is good news after Max Unger's offseason retirement.
• Philadelphia Eagles – Center Jason Kelce is excellent and there's just tons of talent - 1st round rookie recently Andre Dillard had two camp fights in two practices. Dillard was known as a finesse athlete in college and an old-school coach would consider these incidents signs of life. Dillard's a backup to Jason Peters, which speaks to the depth.
• Dallas Cowboys – After missing a year with injuries and illness, center Travis Frederick looked like his usual self in his 9 snaps against San Francisco. Assuming he's back, this line can impose their will on defensive fronts.
Honorable mention – Pittsburgh Steelers – 4 out of 5 of these players are flat out maulers, the only question is if right tackle Matt Feiler can maintain his development without positional coach Mike Munchak on staff.
