NFL Offensive Line Power Rankings 2023

Last Updated: Aug 3, 2023

Looking ahead to the 2023 NFL season, we are power ranking offensive lines—the unsung heroes of any NFL team. They’re doing the dirty work in the trenches to keep their quarterback upright and creating rushing lanes for the running backs.

Here, we will be focusing both on the results and statistics from the 2022 season, as well as the draft picks, free-agent signings, trades, and coaching changes in order to best evaluate each offensive line.

Below, you will find our latest NFL Offensive Line Power Rankings, listing all 32 teams from around the NFL from best to worst.

NFL Offensive Lines Ranked 1-10

1. Philadelphia Eagles

Anchored by Jason Kelce at center, the Eagles’ offensive line is the clear No. 1 unit and ranked No. 2 in our NFL power rankings. Tackles Lane Johnson and Jordan Mailata rank in Pro Football Focus’ top 10 at their position.

Guard Landon Dickerson progressed nicely in his second season. The only question mark, if you can call it that, is Cam Jurgens at guard who is entering his second year in 2023. He’ll be challenged in the offseason though, as the Eagles spent a third-round choice on Alabama OL Tyler Steen.

2. Cleveland Browns

Center Ethan Pocic emerged as one of the under-heralded players at his position after arriving in Cleveland last offseason. The bread and butter of this group are guards Joel Bitonio and Wyatt Teller. Bitonio is a road-grader inside and is a key cog in providing Nick Chubb all that running room.

Tackles Jedrick Wills Jr. and Jack Conklin are solid contributors. The duo combined to allow eight sacks and just 12 QB hits—impressive totals compared to the rest of the league’s tackles.

3. Baltimore Ravens

The loss of Ben Powers shouldn’t be a huge loss, but the other four starters return. Tackles Ronnie Stanley and Morgan Moses are two standouts. Stanley graded as a top-15 pass-blocker at his position on PFF, while Moses finished among the top-10 run-blocking OTs.

The replacement for Powers, Ben Cleveland, didn’t play much last year (93 snaps), so it makes sense that the Ravens opted to draft a couple late-round offensive linemen to get more competition going into training camp.

Center Tyler Linderbaum is a promising player who performed well when run-blocking as a rookie last season. Rounding out the group is G Kevin Zietler, a veteran entering his 12th season, who should have made the Pro Bowl roster last season after allowing just two sacks, no QB hits and 16 pressures.

4. Detroit Lions

Securing this high OL ranking is the new normal in Detroit with Penei Sewell locking down the left side. He only gave up two sacks last season. Fellow tackle Taylor Decker had an above-average 2022 with only four sacks allowed.

Frank Ragnow is a top-five center on PFF with only one sack and no QB hits allowed last season.

G Jonah Jackson will look to improve on last year’s middle-of-the-pack grade. He’s joined by Halapoulivaati Vaitai, who missed all of 2022 with a back injury. He can be a decent option after not allowing a sack in 2021.

5. Atlanta Falcons

There’s a reason this team is comfortable using a high first-round draft pick on RB Bijan Robinson. Chris Lindstrom was not only the best guard in football a year ago, he was arguably the best offensive lineman.

Not to be outdone, right tackle Kaleb McGary graded out as a top-10 offensive linemen on PFF. Left tackle Jake Matthews is no slouch either, with only four sacks and 17 pressures allowed.

Atlanta drafted Syracuse G Matthew Bergeron in Round 2 to take over the left guard spot that was a bit of a rotation in 2022. Drew Dalman rounds out this group at center and is a replacement-level player.

6. Green Bay Packers

A promising rookie season from RT Zach Tom provided upside to an offensive line whose value was greater than the sum of its parts. LT David Bakhtiari gave up 10 pressures, plus no sacks or QB hits in 11 games.

Guards Elgton Jenkins and Jon Runyan form a solid duo inside and allowed a combined six sacks. The glue in the middle is Josh Myers, PFF’s No. 8-graded center. Look for 2022 second-rounder G Sean Rhyan to push for more playing time this year.

It will be interesting to see how well this group performs statistically with Jordan Love under center instead of Aaron Rodgers.

7. Chicago Bears

If there’s one team’s offensive line that has an immeasurable amount of upside on their depth chart, it has to be the Bears with three 2022 Day 3 picks to go along with Tennessee OT Darnell Wright, who was the No. 10 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. One of those Day 3 picks, Braxton Jones, was in PFF’s top-20 tackles.

Chicago signed G Nate Davis via free agency (PFF G rank 20) to pair with C Cody Whitehair and G Teven Jenkins. In limited action (576 snaps), Jenkins allowed only two sacks and 12 pressures.

8. San Francisco 49ers

Left tackle Trent Williams is one of the best in the business (one sack, two QB hits, and 19 pressures on 1,044 snaps). At right tackle, Colton McKivitz takes over for Mike McGlinchey, who is now with the Broncos.

There’s plenty of question marks up the middle between guards Aaron Banks and Spencer Burford. Both ranked in the low 70s in PFF’s rankings for guards.

Journeyman center Jake Brendel was a revelation last season, allowing only one sack on 1,252 snaps. The 49ers rank No. 1 in our NFL defense power rankings.

9. Dallas Cowboys

Tackle Tyron Smith had a down year, even in limited playing time due to injury (ankle). This forced the Cowboys to shift players around, not that it served them well. Between Smith, Tyler Smith and Terence Steele, the Cowboys top three tackles allowed 76 pressures.

The strength of the unit is guard Zack Martin, who didn’t allow a sack in 2022. Center Tyler Biadasz had some growing pains and will need to progress.

More continuity and avoiding injuries will give this unit a great opportunity to climb the list in 2023.

10. Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs, the top-rated team in our NFL offense power rankings, are already feeling the squeeze of the salary cap as both of their 2022 tackles departed via free agency. In their place, Kansas City signed former Tampa Bay tackle Donovan Smith and Jawaan Taylor, who spent his first four seasons in Jacksonville. Neither player was in PFF’s top 60 tackles of 2022.

Creed Humphrey was one of the top centers last season by allowing no sacks and only 19 pressures, including the postseason.

Joe Thuney was PFF’s top pass-blocking guard and his teammate Trey Smith was a top-15 guard, although he did allow 41 pressures (eighth-most).

NFL Offensive Lines Ranked 11-20

11. Los Angeles Chargers

Center Corey Linsley was among the best pass-blocking centers in 2022. He gave up just seven pressures, delivering one of the lowest pressure rates in the NFL.

Left tackle Rashawn Slater hit the injured reserve after Week 3 (bicep). He was solid in 2021, providing the 17th-best tackle grade on PFF. Right tackle Trey Pipkins struggled in run blocking and will need to improve.

Guards Zion Johnson and Jamaree Salyer allowed 42 pressures (sixth-most by guards) and Salyer allowed 48 pressures (seventh-most by tackles) when filling in at left tackle in Slater’s place.

12. Minnesota Vikings

Between Christian Darrisaw and Brian O’Neill, the Vikings possess two of the better starting tackles in the league.

Unfortunately, guards Ezra Cleveland and Ed Ingram leave a lot to be desired. Cleveland and Ingram surrendered 118 pass pressures, by far the most of any guard duo in the league.

Center Garrett Bradbury did show some growth in pass protection, but has missed eight games over the last two seasons.

13. Denver Broncos

The Broncos overhauled the offensive line by signing OT Mike McGlinchey away from the 49ers and G Ben Powers away from the Ravens.

Starting left tackle Garett Bolles broke his leg in Week 5 and will provide some much-needed stability.

Center Lloyd Cushenberry missed half of 2022 (groin), but was barely in the top 20 at his position on PFF. G Quinn Meinerz is a replacement-level option and will likely be challenged for playing time by Kyle Fuller, who’s bounced around the league since 2017.

14. Carolina Panthers

Bend but don’t break. The Panthers don’t have much elite talent, but this group played with the benefit of health and the consistency that comes with it.

Tackles Ikem Ekwonu and Taylor Moton weren’t that special, although Moton did show out in pass protection.

Two signings from the 2022 offseason, C Bradley Bozeman and G Austin Corbett, gelled nicely with G Brady Christiansen to only allow six sacks.

15. Seattle Seahawks

Rookies in 2022, OTs Charles Cross and Abraham Lucas, experienced growing pains. The duo were ranked 54th and 39th at their position, respectively, on PFF.

C Evan Brown was signed in March. G Damien Lewis shines brightest in this group, only allowing three sacks and 21 pressures last year. G Phil Haynes was largely a backup last year and will be charged to play more this year.

This is a young group that could grow together and rise quickly up these ranks.

16. Miami Dolphins

A healthy Austin Jackson at right tackle might make a big difference in 2023. Last year, Miami signed LT Terron Armstead and C Connor Williams. Both played extremely well, and those improvements were demonstrated in the Dolphins’ revamped offense.

Robert Hunt was a top-15 player at guard. G Liam Eichenberg battled with poor play but may still be acclimating to the position after moving to guard.

17. Indianapolis Colts

Tackles Braden Smith and Bernhard Raimann ranked 18th and 25th at their position on PFF. G Quenton Nelson didn’t live up to expectations but still had a solid 2022 campaign with five sacks and 31 pressures allowed.

G Will Fries played down to his seventh-round draft pedigree. C Ryan Kelly was hit-or-miss after faring better in years past.

A sharp decline last season resets the expectations for what was once a great group just a couple years ago.

18. Las Vegas Raiders

LT Kolton Miller anchored this group and finished as PFF’s sixth-best tackle. RT Jermaine Eluemunor had a career-best season in his second year in Las Vegas.

The interior of this line had problems last year. LG Dylan Parham and RG Alex Bars allowed the second and 10th-most pressures among guards. C Andre James didn’t play well either, allowing 24 pressures in just 15 games.

This line will need to progress beyond its growing pains, and the OL should be a bigger priority in next year’s draft.

19. Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh selected Georgia guard Broderick Jones with the 14th overall pick, and he should slide in as a Week 1 starter at left tackle. Mason Cole finished as PFF’s 12th-best center. G Kevin Dotson could challenge G James Daniels for playing time after a solid 2022 season in pass-blocking.

Pittsburgh signed G Isaac Seumalo, G Nate Herbig and T Le’Raven Clark to bolster the unit. Only Seumalo currently projects as a starter. RT Chukwuma Okorafor finished with 41 pressures allowed, tied for 10th-most among tackles.

The Steelers’ OL starters played in 17 games last year, a rare feat in today’s NFL. Although that continuity didn’t translate into much improvement. They’re hoping for better dividends to be paid in 2023 after last year’s investment.

20. New England Patriots

For a team reliant on using the run to set up the pass, the line took a step back last year. LT Trent Brown was finally able to stay healthy after missing portions of his last three seasons, but he also allowed eight sacks and 39 pressures.

The Pats signed OT Riley Reiff in March after nobody was able to contribute positively at right tackle last year, and used two fourths and one fifth-round pick on interior linemen. G Michael Onwenu was a stud at right guard with just one sack and 14 pressures allowed a year ago. 2022 first-rounder Cole Strange didn’t play well and needs to take a big leap forward.

C David Andrews continues to be a very good cog although he’s battled injuries over the years. Look for New England to try to work up their rookies to play inside, so someone like Onwenu can move to right tackle.

NFL Offensive Lines Ranked 21-32

21. Cincinnati Bengals

The Bengals offensive line was a problem for years, but they’re starting to make strides. Cincinnati signed OT Orlando Brown Jr., although he allowed the second-most pressures in the NFL last year. A year ago, they added La’el Collins, Alex Cappa and Ted Karras ahead of the season.

RT Jonah Williams struggled mightily, allowing 13 sacks, 26 hurries and 45 pressures. G Cordell Volson needs to improve in his second year. There’s some depth in this group, so there are silver linings in adding an experienced tackle like Brown and hoping for the best with players added to the roster over the past year.

22. Houston Texans

The Texans selected C Juice Scruggs out of Penn State with the 62nd overall pick. He’ll be working hard to keep No. 2 overall selection, QB C.J. Stroud, safe.

LT Laremy Tunsil continues to be one of the best in the game. RT Tytus Howard was solid, but not great a year ago in allowing three sacks and 38 pressures.

Houston traded for G Shaq Mason from the Buccaneers. 2022 first-rounder, G Kenyon Green, played poorly with four sacks and 47 pressures allowed.

The Texans have to hope their more inexperienced players continue to develop to move up in the power ranks.

23. New York Jets

The Jets dealt with injuries, so they’ve fortified their OL depth chart with many options. OTs Mekhi Becton and Duane Brown could be a formidable pair, depending on where Max Mitchell fits in their plans.

C Connor McGovern will be challenged for his starting gig by Jets second-round pick Joe Tippmann. 2021 first-rounder G Alijah Vera-Tucker wasn’t able to stay healthy last year. LG Laken Tomlinson excelled in pass protection but still leaves a lot to be desired in run-blocking.

25. Buffalo Bills

G Connor McGovern (not to be confused with the player with the same name on the Jets) and G David Edwards were signed in March. The Bills used the 59th overall choice on Florida G O’Cyrus Torrence, and he’ll challenge G Ryan Bates for a starting spot.

LT Dion Dawkins allowed only four sacks and 37 pressures, but was penalized 13 times (second-most among tackles). C Mitch Morse played at below a replacement-player level in 2022 and RT Spencer Brown finished in the bottom 10 in tackles on PFF.

It’s good to see the Bills reinvest in the line with FA signings and a draft pick. Some measured improvement should come in 2023.

26. Jacksonville Jaguars

LT Cam Robinson will likely face a PED suspension, so the Jaguars opted to use a first-round pick on Oklahoma OT Anton Harrison. It also doesn’t help to lose T Jawaan Taylor. RG Brandon Scherff’s best years are likely behind him.

RT Walker Little didn’t perform well in limited action in 2022. G Ben Bartch only played 293 snaps. C Luke Fortner was one of the worst-ranked centers who played more than 1,000 snaps in 2022.

This team really needs Harrison to be a big hit and Robinson’s suspension duration to be very short.

26. Washington Commanders

This team’s best OL last year was LT Charles Leno Jr., who plays great against the pass and struggles in his run blocks.

RT Andrew Wylie comes over via free agency from the Chiefs. Washington also attempted to address the position group by using third and fourth-round picks to add to the depth chart. LG Andrew Norwell was a replacement-level player, ranking 47th at G.

C Nick Gates was signed away from the Giants. RG Samuel Cosmi finished as the 31st-best guard. This is a middling group that needs some elite injections via the draft to take meaningful steps forward.

27. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay used a second-round choice on ND State OG Cody Mauch. OT Tristan Wirfs was the fourth-best pass-blocking tackle in 2022. C Ryan Jensen was on injured reserve in 2022.

G Nick Leverett didn’t allow a sack in 11 games. Luke Goedeke struggled in his rookie season, ranking outside of the top 100 among guards. He likely moves to right tackle this year.

It’ll be interesting to see how well this offensive line transitions into the post-Brady era, as he did so much to avoid sacks and get the ball out under pressure.

28. Arizona Cardinals

Adding G Paris Johnson Jr. with the sixth overall choice in the 2023 NFL Draft was for the best. Arizona also opted to sign C Hjalte Froholdt, T Dennis Daley, T Jackson Barton, G Elijah Wilkinson, and G Hayden Howerton to provide more competition.

OT D.J. Humphries only appeared in eight contests and didn’t allow a sack. OT Kelvin Beachum had a decent year as a pass-blocker, but too often struggles in run blocking. G Will Hernandez gave up three sacks and 16 pressures in 13 games.

Injuries derailed this line in 2022, yet it has allowed them to build depth. The competition for playing time will be intense heading into 2023.

29. New Orleans Saints

LT Trevor Penning only played in six games due to a foot injury. RT Ryan Ramczyk performed well last year, but the Saints felt it necessary to add OT Storm Norton.

Guards Andrus Peat and Cesar Ruiz appeared in 25 games last year, yet neither player graded better than 81st among their position group on PFF. Center Erik McCoy only allowed one sack and 11 pressures in 13 contests.

The offensive line was a strength for a long time in New Orleans. That’s no longer the case.

30. New York Giants

C J.C. Hassenauer was signed in April and will challenge 2023 second-rounder John Michael Schmitz for playing time. In his rookie season, RT Evan Neal struggled, allowing eight sacks and 52 pressures. On the other side, LT Andrew Thomas was excellent. He was graded PFF’s third-best tackle and was only penalized twice on 1,173 snaps.

The Giants traded for G Ben Bredeson last offseason, and he played well in 13 contests with no sacks allowed and just 12 pressures. G Mark Glowinski finished with 37 pressures allowed, 11th-most by guards.

For a team that should want to give RB Saquan Barkley everything he can to succeed, I’d have liked to see another mid-round choice committed to the O-line.

31. Los Angeles Rams

The Rams wisely used a second-round choice on TCU interior lineman Steve Avila. RT Rob Havenstein allowed six sacks and 41 pressures (tied for 10th most among tackles).

C Brian Allen and OT Joe Noteboom played in just 13 combined games last year. G Logan Bruss missed his rookie season last year with an ACL injury.

This group needs to stay on the field and remain healthy to properly evaluate their talent.

32. Tennessee Titans

Stalwart tackle Taylor Lewan only appeared in two games in 2022 (knee) and was released this offseason. LT Andre Dillard and G Daniel Brunskill were signed via agency to overhaul this group. C Aaron Brewer and RT Nicholas Petit-Frere allowed 35 and 36 pressures last season, respectively.

The Titans used the 11th overall pick of the 2023 NFL Draft on G Peter Skoronski, but he does have the potential to move outside— and may need to—given the Titans’ lack of talent across the board.

For a team with a run-first mentality, there are too many unknowns in this OL group.
