Offensive line

1. Packers

There isn’t much debate about this. The Packers have one of the strongest starting offensive lines in the league, particularly on the left side. David Bakhtiari is a four-time All-Pro and Elgton Jenkins looks to be a future star after dominating in his rookie season. With Corey Linsley a consistent performer at center and Lane Taylor returning to form at right guard, this offensive line can dominate.

2. Lions

With Taylor Decker at left tackle and Frank Ragnow at center, the Lions are set at a couple of positions along the offensive line. They did lose starting right tackle Rick Wagner to the Packers and overpaid for Halapoulivaati Vaitai to replace him, who was a backup with the Philadelphia Eagles. Detroit also surprisingly let Graham Glasgow walk in free agency.

3. Bears

The Bears have some talent along the offensive line but return mostly the same group that allowed 45 sacks in 2019. Center Cody Whitehair is one of the best interior linemen in the division.

4. Vikings

Along the offensive line, the Vikings could face some of the same problems as last year when they come up against strong pass rushes. In the second game against the Packers last season, they had no answer for the Smith Bros. who, along with Kenny Clark, combined for five sacks.
