Honorable mentions

Ryan Schraeder (Atlanta Falcons): Schraeder regressed a little bit from his 2016 form this past season (similar to the rest of the Falcons offense), but he still deserves to be included in these rankings. He does a great job in ensuring stability on the right side of the Falcons’ offensive line.

Ronnie Stanley (Baltimore Ravens): Stanley is a rising star and I see him cracking the top 10 of this list one day. I’m really interested to see how the Ravens’ offensive line does blocking for Lamar Jackson a year or two from now. With Stanley protecting his blindside, there is reason for confidence.

Rick Wagner (Detroit Lions): The Lions rebuilt a lot of their entire offensive line in the 2017 offseason by letting Riley Reiff walk, and at the same time bringing in Rick Wagner from Baltimore to play right tackle and T.J. Lang from Green Bay to play guard. It ended up being very successful. Wagner, alongside Taylor Decker, will make for a great tackle pairing not just in the present, but in the future.

Cordy Glenn (Cincinnati Bengals): Glenn switched teams this offseason, going from Buffalo to Cincinnati. I don’t think that will affect him too much. He may have less talent around him, but he still has Pro Bowl potential. His presence will make life easier for Andy Dalton.

Ryan Ramczyk (New Orleans Saints): Ramczyk is one of the steals of the 2017 draft. He was the last pick of the first round, but he managed to be one of the best rookies last year. He has certainly been the best offensive lineman from that draft class so far. The Saints have done a great job creating a tackle pairing that should be able to keep Drew Brees healthy, with Terron Armstead and Ramczyk.
