Default Ranking the 2012 Offensive Lines

Ranking the 2012 Offensive Lines

Each year we present our list of the top offensive lines in football. Itís not built on which teams gave up the most sacks, or who had the most rushing yards.

It goes far beyond that.

No, we understand that the success a team has in running the ball or protecting the quarterback is more than just a reflection of the offensive line. It involves the skill players making plays, whether thatís getting rid of the ball before pressure can develop, breaking a tackle to turn a 2-yard run into a 20-yard one, or making sure that blitzing defensive back is halted in his progress.

Our 2012 Offensive Line Rankings look solely at those guys who are offensive linemen, and how theyíve performed. Itís broken down into three categories (Pass Protection, Run and Screen Blocking, and Penalties) and between them they give us an overall score which leads to the rankings.

Now, letís countdown to No. 1 (2011 rank in brackets Ė green Improving, red dropping).

10. Houston Texans (-5 spots)

PassBlock Ė 8th, RunBlock Ė 12th, Penalty Ė 6th

Stud: There isnít a more complete left tackle in the game at the moment than Duane Brown (+35.6). His athleticism is on the tape for all to see, in a way you donít often imagine from men his size.

Dud: They couldnít afford to keep Eric Winston and the end result was a big dropoff courtesy of Derek Newton (-8.7). He just couldnít execute in the run game the way Winston had.

Summary: They lost two starters and it showed at times against bigger and better defenses. Still, the duo of Chris Myers and Duane Brown excelled and they rarely let their quarterback feel pressure. All things considered, it could have been a lot worse.
