Ranking the NFC South: Offensive line


By Herbie Teope
Football begins in the trenches, where mostly unassuming players on offense call home.
An offensive lineman should possess numerous traits, including intelligence, size, athleticism, strength, patience, work ethic, the ability to finish blocks and a mean streak.
When five individual players combine to form the offensive line, a good unit operates within the scheme by displaying cohesion with the ability to protect the quarterback, control time of possession and establish the run.

And while my opinion was refuted before, our offensive line did have problems last year when facing tougher matchups and I will stand by that. We will see if drafting Ram solves this issue and if Warford is a upgrade from Evans.

If the Saints don't have the best line in the South, then nobody does. Falcons, are you kidding me??

Freeman had a breakout year, adding Sanu, Mack and a UDFA WR was huge however Shanahan was calling plays. The filthy birds are nuts if they believe they will simply pick up the pieces with a new OC and dominate in 2017.

I'll be very surprised if there isn't a drop off.
