Ranking All 32 Offensive Lines From the 2017 NFL Season

The start of the new league year on March 14 officially marks the end of the 2017 season. And for that reason, Pro Football Focus is taking one final look at the season that was by ranking the league’s best offensive lines.

Out of the NFL’s 32 clubs, the Rams offensive line came in as the sixth-best unit.

Los Angeles Rams:

Total pressures surrendered: 151
Best player: Rodger Saffold
Combinations used: 9

“A unit that went from being a liability to becoming the strength of the team, the Rams’ offensive line had a surprisingly solid season. Veteran guard Rodger Saffold had his best season to date, while right guard Jamon Brown was able to bounce back following a tough first month when he struggled against Washington and San Francisco. In addition, free agent acquisitions John Sullivan and Andrew Whitworth were still able to perform at a high level at the ages of 32 and 36, respectively… Overall, the line gave a big help to our Comeback Player of the Year Todd Gurley as Rams running backs averaged 1.90 yards before contact, the fifth-most in the NFL.”
