Note: Jersey Numbers based on Nola.com, Twitter, and NewOrleansSaints.com Images and Reports

Figure on Saints keeping between seven (7), maybe eight (8) offensive linemen on the final (53) intial roster...

Early Rankings of our offensive line would be:
  1. 72 - Terron Armstead - Armed with a new contract, Coach Payton thinks he's the best LT in the NFL...
  2. 64 - Zach Strief - Yeah, he's old, ugly in space, but he's the most underrated OT in the NFL...
  3. 60 - Max Unger - Formerly the best C in the league, key season to get him extended, hoping both Unger and Saints want it...
  4. 68 - Tim Lelito - Don't get all the FanHate, Former UDRFA that has worked his arse off and is poised for a breakout season...
  5. 75 - Andrus Peat - You can tell he's looked lost our of LT position, but he's got to be a pro, man-up and win a position or learn another...
  6. 65 - Senio Kelemete - An ideal utility inside offensive linemen who's becoming a pro's pro and is effective in short-run playing time...
  7. 74 - Tyrus Thompson - Maybe he's gotten by on physical talent so long that the NFL has been too much adjustment on the mental side?
  8. 78 - Landon Turner - Can be another in a long line of "steals" by the Saints UDFA, but he wasn't drafted for a reason...what's the reason?
  9. 79 - Joseph Cheek - Struggled on the inside at Texas A&M where favored star recruits were in place at OT, can the Saints get it right moving him back to OT?
  10. 70 - Ryker Mathews - Reminds of a young Strief, just a mountain of a man, very strong, and can limit the elite rushers once he gets his hands on...
  11. 66 - Jack Allen - Great athlete, Great Attitude, Great Intelligence, just wasn't born with NFL height, reach...
  12. 62 - Cyril Lemon - Physically can nearly check the boxes, but sometimes the NFL can be too cerebral...
  13. 71 - Kaleb Eulls - Made the brave decision to try playing another position; one of the highest character players Saints have had...
  14. 61 - Marcus Henry - Bowling Ball of a center, though only slightly undersized; played in limited scheme in college...
  15. 67 - Avery Young - Naturally big man and had some success in college because of it, but this is the NFL...

Offensive Linemen to watch who're likely to move up:
78 - Landon Turner
70 - Ryker Mathews
79 - Joseph Cheek
