Offensive Line Draft Talk Thread

Recommended Posts

Expert horse trader Mike traded for a lame horse.  Mike doesn’t like trading.  Too much work to assess the capability and health of someone else’s player.

I dont think thats the case (this time) because any trade has a "pass a team physical" clause.......so I am betting 1 real american dollar the injury happened here

This guy thinks the Bengals' will still get/draft Sewell at #5:

A lot of that is predicated on the QB run above them, and Miami taking Chase (all very plausible at this point).

UC should have won that Peach Bowl game.  The incomplete pass on their last 3rd down stopped the clocks left 1:30 for GA instead of 1:00 or so.  Bad mistake.

Fields' performance is GREAT news for the Bengals - raises the chances of Lawrence, Fields, and the BYU guy all being in top 4 picks - which should put Bengals in a good spot to get BPA at 5-8 or so.

Good point.  Fields suddenly looks worth that second pick.  It’s a win/win for this Buckeye/Bengal fan.

Agreed that Field's performance dramatically improves our chances of getting a player that better fits our needs

but

more importantly in my eyes, a better chance of getting a much needed multi-pick tradedown offer from a team hungry to draft a potentially franchise QB.

So as long as we hold onto that number 5 spots, so.....GO RAVENS  (yeah, I just threw up in my mouth a little)

Performing the necessary voodoo to ensure a team in front of us is properly enamored by Justin Fields.

29. NEW YORK JETS (Final PFF ranking)

The Jets, like the Dolphins, threw a lot of resources at the offensive line this offseason. That included a first-round pick spent on Louisville tackle Mekhi Becton, who impressed in his rookie season. His 74.3 PFF grade ranked 19th out of 38 qualifying left tackles despite battling injuries, and he showcased that his rare blend of size and athleticism could cause serious problems for defenders.

Overall, however, it was a disappointing season for the offensive line in New York. They allowed pressure in 2.5 seconds or less on 28% of their dropbacks — the worst rate in the NFL. The line wasn’t creating many lanes in the run game, either. The Jets averaged just 1.1 yards per carry before contact per rushing attempt in 2020 (30th). Once again, they’ll have to look to add pieces to their offensive line this offseason.

27. NEW YORK JETS (PFF Pre Season)

The Jets have thrown plenty of resources at the offensive line this offseason, but question marks still abound. They finished just 28th in our 2019 rankings, and they will have at least three new starters in 2020. 

First-round pick Mekhi Becton, a mauling run blocker who has some work to do in pass protection, is the likely starter at left tackle. Becton’s college film is rare, as the 6-foot-7, 360-pounder tossed college players around like high schoolers, but his mediocre 64.7 pass-blocking grade on true pass sets is a concern. 

At right tackle, it’ll be a batter between free agent signing George Fant and second-year player Chuma Edoga. Fant has been a developmental project for the Seahawks, and his best work has come when playing as a sixth offensive lineman at tight end. Fant has an overall grade of just 47.6 when playing tackle, 86th out of 89 qualifiers dating back to 2016, so he remains a project. Edoga, on the other hand, was drafted in the third round back in 2019 and has potential as a pass-blocker after a strong career at USC. However, his first 421 NFL snaps did not go well, evidenced by his 48.9 overall grade and the six penalties called against him. 

Both starting guards return in Alex Lewis andBrian Winters, but there’s plenty of competition on the inside — Lewis has yet to grade above 60.2 in three years of significant playing time, while Winters has graded above 70.0 just once in his career (2016).

Greg Van Roten comes in from Carolina, where he had a career year in 2019, finishing with a 65.6 overall grade that finished 24thamong guards. Van Roten first entered the league in 2012 and has taken a roundabout path to becoming a starter, but he’s been solid over the last two years. 

Center has been a huge problem spot for the team, so the Jets signed another player coming off a career year in Connor McGovern,whose 72.0 overall grade tied for ninth among centers during the 2019 regular season. However, McGovern posted a 48.9 grade in 2017 and a 58.8 mark in 2018, so New York will be hoping they got the 2019 version in free agency.

Step 1 is complete- hiring a guy with some NFL credentials.   However the 2018 line with him as coach was bad. 
 

The Jets lines have been bad. 

A great hire, but not a miracle worker.  Need to upgrade the talent.

Actually, the 2018 line was statistically quite good here. 

Quote

Mike Watts


"Under Pollack’s direction in 2018, Cincinnati’s offensive line ranked 11th in the NFL in fewest sacks allowed per game (2.3), while also paving the way for HB Joe Mixon to log career-highs in rushing yards (1168), average yards per attempt (4.9) and rushing TDs (eight)."

No it wasn’t.  They were ranked in the 20s all season.

Dalton saved them so many sacks throwing it away.  Glenn was a bust as well as Price.

Hart had his worse season. 
 

CIN-Bengals-Header.pngCordy Glenn and Billy Price were supposed to come in and fix the Bengals' reeling offensive line this season, but both came in and fell victim to what might be a cursed unit. Glenn had the lowest-graded season of his career at 60.9 overall, and he gave up a career-high 36 pressures. Price didn’t fare any better with a 49.4 overall grade in a season marred with injury.

Cool, cool, cool, you do you. It was mixon's best season and their sack rate was good. Stop being a dink
