NFL Offensive Line Rankings 2024: Eagles Remain #1 After Week 2

While quarterbacks and wide receivers are consistently the headline-stealing players in the NFL, offensive linemen are often the fulcrum to consistent success in the NFL. This article will break down the top offensive lines in the league following the first big wave of free agency activity. Advanced metrics are sourced from Pro Football Focus (PFF), Football Outsiders, and ESPN.

Offensive Line Rankings 2024

This article will be updated weekly throughout the NFL season, and was last updated following Week 2.

Philadelphia Eagles

#1: Philadelphia Eagles

Starting Five: LT Jordan Mailata, LG Landon Dickerson, C Jason Kelce, RG Cam Jurgens, RT Lane Johnson

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #1

All Pros Jason Kelce and Lane Johnson headline what is consistently one of the best offensive lines in the NFL. Landon Dickerson is an ascending talent while Jordan Mailata is coming off a strong season where he led all tackles in ESPN’s run block win rate. The loss of starter Isaac Seumaulo hurt, but Cam Jurgens is ready to step into a starting role. Kelce helped pick Jurgens as his future replacement at center.

Dallas Cowboys

#2: Dallas Cowboys

Starting Five: LT Tyron Smith, LG Tyler Smith, C Tyler Biadasz, RG Zack Martin, RT Terence Steele

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #5

The Cowboys’ offensive line has been one of the best in the league for years, and that will remain true as long as tackle Tyron Smith and guard Zack Martin remain in the lineup. Second-year guard/tackle Tyler Smith is also poised for big improvement while Terrence Steele is a reliable right tackle. Dallas will depend on its offensive line in new OC Brian Schottenheimer’s offense.

Atlanta Falcons

#3: Atlanta Falcons

Starting Five: LT Jake Matthews, LG Matthew Bergeron, C Drew Dalman, RG Chris Lindstromg, RT Kaleb McGary

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #4

The Falcons have had an excellent start to their season with their offensive line paving the way for a dominant run game. That was no surprise as this group ranked fifth in adjusted line yards last season. Chris Lindstrom had a career year and was the best guard in football per PFF. He was rewarded with a well deserved five-year, $102.5 million extension. All five starters on this offensive line were drafted by Atlanta, and this is a tremendous home-grown unit.

Green Bay Packers

#4: Green Bay Packers

Starting Five: LT David Bakhtiari, LG Elgton Jenkins, C Josh Myers, RG Jon Runyan, RT Zach Tom

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #7

David Bakhtiari is at full health, and that’s crucial for the Packers moving forward as their stalwart left tackle. Despite him missing six games last year, Green Bay ranked top six in both adjusted line yards and adjusted sack rate allowed while ranking as PFF’s third-best pass protection unit. Elgton Jenkins is a big reason why as one of the most valuable linemen in the NFL.

Kansas City Chiefs

#5: Kansas City Chiefs

Starting Five: LT Donovan Smith, LG Joe Thuney, C Creed Humphrey, RG Trey Smith, RT Jawaan Taylor

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #8

The Chiefs reworked their offensive tackle situation before the season, and it remains to be seen if they’ll be successful when Jawaan Taylor isn’t lining up five steps behind the line of scrimmage on every snap. Nevertheless, the Chiefs might have the best interior offensive line in the NFL. Both Joe Thuney and Trey Smith were top five in pass block win rate among offensive guards according to ESPN while Creed Humphrey was first among centers.

Detroit Lions

#6: Detroit Lions

Starting Five: LT Taylor Decker, LG Jonah Jackson, C Frank Ragnow, RG Halapoulivaati Vaitai, RT Penei Sewell

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #6

The Lions have built their team the right way through the trenches, with Taylor Decker, Frank Ragnow, and Penei Sewell, all starting as former first round picks by the team. The Lions ranked top seven in adjusted line yards and adjusted sack rate according to Football Outsiders. Sewell continues to improve as one of the best young tackles in the league. Injuries to OT Taylor Decker and OG Halapoulivaati Vaitai need to be monitored moving forward.

Cleveland Browns

#7: Cleveland Browns

Starting Five: LT Jedrick Wills Jr., LG Joel Bitonio, C Ethan Pocic, RG Wyatt Teller, RT Dawand Jones

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #2

The Browns boasted strong continuity in returning all five starters up front from last season, but Jack Conklin was lost for the rest of the year with a torn ACL. Rookie Dawand Jones replaces him after shining in the preseason, but there’s an appreciable decline from an All Pro talent at right tackle. The interior remains strong with Joel Bitonio and Wyatt Teller, but the loss of Conklin results in a drop in the Browns’ ranking.

Baltimore Ravens

#8: Baltimore Ravens

Starting Five: LT Ronnie Stanley, LG John Simpson, C Tyler Linderbaum, RG Kevin Zeitler, RT Morgan Moses

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #3

The Ravens have built a tremendous offensive line, but injuries have become a major concern with tackle Ronnie Stanley and center Tyler Linderbaum. The loss of guard Ben Powers in free agency already hurt the offensive line, but this unit should be excellent as long as they are healthy. Keep an eye on injury reports moving forward.

Los Angeles Chargers

#9: Los Angeles Chargers

Starting Five: LT Rashawn Slater, LG Zion Johnson, C Corey Linsley, RG Jamaree Salyer, RT Trey Pipkins III

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #15

The Chargers might be building something special on their offensive line. Rashawn Slater is back in the fold after missing three games last year while right tackle Trey Pipkins III has been developing, as well. Second-year guards Zion Johnson and Jamaree Salyer have tremendous upside while former All Pro center Corey Linsley is still one of the best at his position.

Denver Broncos

#10: Denver Broncos

Starting Five: LT Garet Bolles, LG Ben Powers, C Lloyd Cushenberry, RG Quinn Meinerz, RT Mike McGlinchey

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #10

One of the first things new head coach Sean Payton did in Denver was upgrade this offensive line. No team allowed more sacks in 2022 than the Broncos with 63. A healthy Garret Bolles would be enough to change the dynamic, but the free agency additions of Mike McGlinchey and Ben Powers were also huge. Quinn Meinerz is also poised for a breakout third season.

Oakland Raiders

#11: Las Vegas Raiders

Starting Five: LT Kolton Miller, LG Dylan Parham, C Andre James, RG Jermaine Eluemenor, RT Thayer Munford

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #12

The Raiders’ offensive line was one of the biggest surprises of the 2022 season as they were excellent despite being frequently listed as one of the worst groups in the NFL. Left tackle Kolton Miller deserves more credit as one of the best in the league at his position.

Indianpolis Colts

#12: Indianapolis Colts

Starting Five: LT Bernhard Raimann, LG Quenton Nelson, C Ryan Kelly, RG Will Fries, RT Bernhard Raimann

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #16

The Colts’ offensive line looks to be back on track, especially with former All Pro guard Quenton Nelson looking back to his old self. Ryan Kelly and Will Fries remain steadying presences on the interior, but it’s left tackle Bernhard Raimann who provides the upside for this unit. Raimann, a former third-round pick out of Central Michigan, is turning into a high-level starting left tackle.

San Francisco 49ers

#13: San Francisco 49ers

Starting Five: LT Trent Williams, LG Aaron Banks, C Jake Brendel, RG Spencer Burford, RT Colton McKivitz

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #9

The 49ers remain difficult to rank as Kyle Shanahan’s system masks some of the individual deficiencies in terms of personnel. Significant free agency losses continued in 2023, and this group is rather average outside of Trent Williams, who is one of the best in the league at left tackle. The interior offensive line has some holes, but as long as Williams is healthy and Shanahan is coaching, this will remain a productive line.

Minnesota Vikings

#14: Minnesota Vikings

Starting Five: LT Christian Darrisaw, LG Ezra Cleveland, C Garrett Bradbury, RG Ed Ingram, RT Brian O’Neill

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #11

The Vikings aren’t a great run-blocking offensive line, but that’s okay as they’re one of the most pass-heavy offenses in the NFL. Getting tackles Christian Darrisaw and Brian O’Neill back to full health is huge for the offense moving forward, while Garrett Bradbury’s injury status is one to watch. Overall, this is an excellent pass-blocking unit.

Buffalo Bills

#15: Buffalo Bills

Starting Five: LT Dion Dawkins, LG Connor McGovern, C Mitch Morse, RG O’Cyrus Torrence, RT Spencer Brown

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #28

The Bills’ offensive line is trending up to start this season and the group’s overall continuity has been prevalent. The addition of Connor McGovern seems to have helped while O’Cyrus Torrence has been a steady starter as a rookie. The Bills’ offensive line struggled in the playoff loss against the Bengals, but so far so good for them this year.

Miami Dolphins

#16: Miami Dolphins

Starting Five: LT Kendall Lamm, LG Isaiah Wynn, C Connor Williams, RG Robert Hunt, RT Austin Jackson

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #24

The Dolphins needed to improve on the offensive line to help keep Tua Tagovailoa upright, and while Terron Armstead has been absent, there have been some positive takeaways. Austin Jackson has been solid to start the year while Isaiah Wynn has been a big boost for the interior offensive line. Once Armstead returns, this line could creep towards the top ten.

Carolina Panthers

#17: Carolina Panthers

Starting Five: LT Ikem Ekwonu, LG Chandler Zavala, C Bradley Bozeman, RG Cade Mays, RT Taylor Moton

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #14

The Panthers were a top 15 offensive line in both pass block and run block win rate last season according to ESPN, and maintaining that level will be crucial for protecting rookie Bryce Young. Injuries to guards Austin Corbett and Brady Christensen have compromised the interior offensive line, and that will be important to monitor moving forward. Left tackle Ikem Ekwonu’s development will dictate much of the upside for this team.

los angeles rams

#18: Los Angeles Rams

Starting Five: LT Alaric Jackson, LG Steve Avila, C Joe Noteboom, RG Joe Noteboom, RT Rob Havenstein

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #28

The offensive line was a mess for the Rams in 2022, primarily because they simply couldn’t stay healthy. However, the addition of rookie Steve Avila provides a major boost and Alaric Jackson looks like the future at left tackle. All five starting offensive linemen graded above average in Week 1 per PFF.

Chicago Bears

#19: Chicago Bears

Starting Five: LT Larry Borom, LG Cody Whitehair, C Lucas Patrick, RG Nate Davis, RT Darnell Wright

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #13

The Bears took a big drop in these offensive line rankings with Braxton Jones hitting IR with a neck injury. Larry Borom replaces him at left tackle, and that’s a big decline. Nate Davis has been a strong addition to the interior and rookie Darnell Wright is finding his footing at right tackle.

Seattle Seahawks

#20: Seattle Seahawks

Starting Five: LT Charles Cross, LG Damien Lewis, C Evan Brown, RG Phil Haynes, RT Abraham Lucas

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #17

The Seahawks’ offensive line has the talent to be a top 12 unit, but injuries have killed them in the early goin. Tackles Charles Cross and Abraham Lucas remain out while guards Phil Haynes and Damien Lewis have sustained injuries. Once this group gets healthy, I’ll move them up these rankings.

Cincinnati Bengals

#21: Cincinnati Bengals

Starting Five: LT Orlando Brown, LG Cordell Volson, C Ted Karras, RG Alex Cappa, RT Jonah Williams

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #19

The health of Joe Burrow is the early story for the Bengals, but it hasn’t helped that this offensive line has yet to find its footing. The matchups haven’t exactly been easy so far, but that’s not changing given the tough defensive lines in the AFC North. Orlando Brown should be an upgrade at left tackle, and assuming Jonah Williams can learn the right tackle position, this could develop into the best offensive line of Joe Burrow’s career. That isn’t saying much, however.

New England Patriots

#22: New England Patriots

Starting Five: LT Trent Brown, LG Cole Strange, C David Andrews, RG Mike Onwenu, RT Calvin Anderson

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #23

The Patriots have a decent group of offensive linemen here, but the injuries have been brutal to start the season – all five starters are currently on the injury report. Mike Onwenu is the best player in this group and is in a contract year. Trent Brown and David Andrews remain steady starters, as well. As this group gets healthier, they’ll likely move up these rankings.

Pittsburgh Steelers

#23: Pittsburgh Steelers

Starting Five: LT Dan Moore Jr., LG Isaac Seumalo, C Mason Cole, RG James Daniels, RT Chukwuma Okorafor

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #18

I was very bullish on an improved Steelers’ offensive line, but the early results haven’t been promising. Through two weeks, the Steelers are the only team with zero rushing yards before contact per PFF. The Steelers will face many more elite defensive lines this season, and the protection for Kenny Pickett must go from a weakness to a strength, especially with Diontae Johnson out.


#24: Washington Commanders

Starting Five: LT Charles Leno Jr., LG Saahdiq Charles, C Nick Gates, RG Sam Cosmi, RT Andrew Wylie

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #21

The Commanders’ offensive line has looked solid so far, and that’s important to the second-year development of quarterback Sam Howell. I’m looking forward to seeing how this line fares against tougher matchups, especially given they play in the same division as the Eagles and Cowboys, two of the best defensive lines in the NFL.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

#25: Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Starting Five: LT Tristan Wirfs, LG Matt Feiler, C Robert Hainsey, RG Cody Mauch, RT Luke Goedeke

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #31

The Buccaneers keep moving up these offensive line rankings. Tristan Wirfs has been excellent at left tackle while the second-year pro Luke Geodeke has been steady on the right side. The loss of Ryan Jensen still looms over this group, but Cody Mauch has hit the ground running in his rookie season and the young talent is excellent in this group.

Houston Texans

#26: Houston Texans

Starting Five: LT Laremy Tunsil, LG Josh Jones, C Jarrett Patterson, RG Shaq Mason, RT George Fant

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #20

Injuries have hit the Texans’ offensive line hard to start this season, but Laremy Tunsil was the best pass-protecting tackle in the league according to PFF, and his presence will be huge for their soon-to-be rookie quarterback that they take with the #2 overall pick. The interior looked horrible in Week 1, and we’ll see how that progresses moving forward as protecting C.J. Stroud will be massive for this team’s success.

Tennessee Titans

#27: Tennessee Titans

Starting Five: LT Andre Dillard, LG Peter Skoronski, C Aaron Brewer, RG Daniel Brunskill, RT Chris Hubbard

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #32

The Titans’ offensive line looked a bit better than expected to start the season, and rookie Peter Skoronski had a very strong debut. Free agency additions Chris Hubbard and Daniel Brunskill have provided stability. However, Andre Dillard remains a big concern at left tackle. If the Titans can at least provide decent run blocking for Derrick Henry, this offense should be functional.

New York Jets

#27: New York Jets

Starting Five: LT Duane Brown, LG Laken Tomlinson, C Connor McGovern, RG Alijah Vera-Tucker, RT Mekhi Becton

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #27

The Jets’ offensive line is even more important now that Aaron Rodgers is out for the season. Zach Wilson holds onto the ball too long, so this offensive line might look worse than it actually is in spurts. It was great to see right tackle Mekhi Becton back on the field after he’s struggled with injuries, and Alijah Vera-Tucker now being healthy is massive, as well, but this unit is going to be a major weakness all year.

New York Giants

#28: New York Giants

Starting Five: LT Andrew Thomas, LG Ben Bredeson, C John Michael Schmitz Jr., RG Joshua Ezeudu, RT Evan Neal

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #22

Daniel Jones has been more pressured than any other quarterback to start this season, and now Andrew Thomas is banged up, the one bright spot on their offensive line. Ben Bredeson has provided stability at guard, but Evan Neal hasn’t shown any improvement in his second season, and his poor play hamstrings this group overall.

New Orleans Saints

#29: New Orleans Saints

Starting Five: LT Trevor Penning, LG Andrus Peat, C Erik McCoy, RG Cesar Ruiz, RT Ryan Ramczyk

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #30

The Saints’ offensive line is a problem. After suffering a season-ending injury last year, second-year tackle Trevor Penning hasn’t looked ready to start this season, and he’s a major liability in protecting new quarterback Derek Carr. Ryan Ramczyk is a stalwart at right tackle, but the rest of this line is concerning and could be this team’s undoing as the season goes along.

Jacksonville Jaguars

#31: Jacksonville Jaguars

Starting Five: LT Walker Little, LG Ben Bartch, C Luke Fortner, RG Brandon Scherff, RT Anton Harrison

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #25

The Jaguars’ offensive line was a major concern going into the season, and while the pass protection has been decent, the run blocking has been a problem. Walker Little and rookie Anton Harrison man the tackle positions and are very green while the interior offensive line could be a real issue for Trevor Lawrence and the offense.

Arizona Cardinals

#32: Arizona Cardinals

Starting Five: LT D.J. Humphries, LG Elijah Wilkinson, C Hjalte Froholdt, RG Will Hernandez, RT Paris Johnson Jr.

Ranking Before 2023 Season: #29

The Cardinals selected Paris Johnson Jr. in the first round, and his debut went very well. He’ll be a future anchor for this team along with left tackle D.J. Humphries. While the Cardinals’ season might be over before it really began, this offensive line has some decent parts. The bigger concern is the interior with Wilkinson, Froholdt, and Hernandez giving pause.
