    O-line Rankings (06/04/14)

    NFL Positional Power Rankings – ranking every player in the NFL by position.



    Our NFL Positional Power Rankings are based on an impact score (0 - 10 scale) for each player. These are the same rankings we share with NFL teams to discuss draft and roster creation as well as the basis for all of our NFL Draft content including 2014 Top 250 Rankings. The impact score is a relative value based on the projections that can put players in context across positions. A score of seven or above can generally outperform a replacement player in the NFL at his position; an eight or above can be expected to start adequately and a player with a rating over nine is a unique, game-changing athlete.

    Why are positional rankings important? The ratings used in the positional rankings analysis are directly tied to the objective used to run each NFL regular and postseason game 50,000 times. The relative strengths and weakness of the teams have helped PredictionMachine.com go 35-9 (80% ATS) all-time in the NFL Playoffs.

    Rankings: offensive skill positions (including quarterbacks, running backs, wide receivers and tight ends). Defensive line, linebackers and defensive secondary rankings will be revealed in the coming days.

    Offensive Line Highlights
    • The highest rated player: Philadelphia Eagles guard Evan Mathis (9.8 out of 10), higher than Peyton Manning (9.3 out of 10). Note: these rating are relative to expectations at each position. Mathis not necessarily better than Manning but he is a better offensive guard than Manning is a quarterback.
    • Sixteen offensive linemen earned an impact score of nine or above (game-changing), only ten skill position players can say the same.
    • The highest rated tackle: the Cleveland Browns' Joe Thomas (9.2 out of 10)
    • The highest rated centers: the Philadelphia Eagles' Jason Kelce, the Minnesota Vikings' John Sullivan and the Detroit Lions' Dominic Raiola (9.0 out of 10).
    • The highest rated rookie offensive linemen – St. Louis Ram's Greg Robinson and Atlanta Falcons' Jake Matthrews (8.8 out of 10).
    • There are a total of four guards and three tackles starting as rookies.
    • Rumors: the Rams may start Greg Robinson at guard, which would bump St. Louis to the fifth best offensive line.
    • Only half of the players ranked (160 linemen total) earned a ranking of eight or above – expected to start adequately.
    • Tackles get paid the most but four of the top six offensive linemen are guards.
