⚜️NEWS: Our Offensive Line has been ranked as the 7th best in the NFL, per PFF. This is a fitting ranking in my opinion, but let’s explore how the O-line will do this season.
We undoubtedly have one of the best combos in our Outside Tackles. Armstead and Armczyk both earned well deserved PFF rankings of 87.4 and 81.3. This has them ranked as the 2nd and 8th best tackles. I fully expect them to have great seasons while continuing to hold on to their best combo title.
One area of concern is with our interior line. Our left guard, Andrus Peat, has a PFF ranking of 39.2. This places him in the low 70s ranking wise. He has had some injury issues, and has had to constantly shift around due to other injuries with our line. He was a first round pick in 2015, so I worry that he will be traded if he does not improve his game this season. When he has not been injured, he has stepped up. This will be a very important season for him to prove himself! I think if he can stay away from any injuries, he will improve in all aspects.
The area of most speculation is our starting Center. Due to Max Unger retiring, we have a huge void that must be filled. I will be making another post to just focus on McCoy and Easton, so stay tuned!
