Where does the Titans OL stand vs the rest of the division?
Over the last three drafts the Tennessee Titans, Houston Texans, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Indianapolis Colts have used six 1st or 2nd round picks on the offensive line.
Offensive linemen aren’t household names most of the time, but you’d be hard-pressed to find a great team that didn’t have a very good offensive line.
Generally, the best offensive lines end up being the best teams at the end of the season. According to the offensive line rankings from PFF, the Cowboys were the only team in 2019 to have a top-5 o-line and not make the playoffs.
Having a stout five-man crew up front is especially important for run-first teams like the Titans. Derrick Henry is amazing, but he can’t do it alone. Thankfully for him, the Titans had one of the best run-blocking units in the league last year.
The Texans handed LT Laremy Tunsil a massive extension, and keep most of their unit together in 2020.
The Colts have arguably the best line in the league, and also kept their core together for at least one more season.
The Jaguars are the biggest question mark in this division, but the Titans, Colts, and Texans are in much better positions with their offensive lines’ than they were a few years ago.
Whichever team ends up winning the AFC South this year, it will undoubtedly be aided by the play of their offensive line. With that being said, let’s rank the AFC South teams, from worst to best, regarding their offensive line.
