    Passblocking is the NFL's secret -- or at least, underrated -- method for winning.

    Analysis based on ESPN's pass block win rate (PBWR) -- a metric powered by NFL Next Gen Stats that we first unveiled last season -- led us to that conclusion and canbe found right here.
    But what about 2019? Which offensive lines will stand out? That's what this space is for.

    Since PBWR is a mere 8 months old, we don't have a formal method of predicting passblockingjust yet. But what we do have are past results, expected starters (thanks to ESPN's Mike Clay) and a dash of my own subjectivity. Blend that all together and we're left with our predicted pass-blocking superlatives for the 2019 season.

    Only thing you need to know: PBWR is simply the rate at which an offensive lineman sustains his passblockfor at least 2.5 seconds. The full methodologycan be found right here.
