Few things are more important to an NFL team’s success than the quality of its offensive line. Disastrous lines, or even disastrous weak-link mismatches, can determine the outcome of games, while strong units provide an incredible advantage to an offense.

We monitored NFL offensive line play all season long while highlighting the biggest weak-link players for each group. With the 2023 NFL regular season in the books, here are the final rankings and each unit's best player.

Red text = weak link

1. Philadelphia Eagles

Best lineup:

LT Jordan Mailata
LG Landon Dickerson
C Jason Kelce
RG Cam Jurgens
RT Lane Johnson

  • While the Eagles' offensive line, mainly due to injuries, could not keep up its 2022 form for all 18 weeks of the 2023 regular season, the unit at full strength and playing to its potential was still the best in the NFL.
  • Mailata (85.9), Kelce (84.8) and Johnson (82.9) were each among the five highest-graded players at their positions this season.
Best player: Jordan Mailata
  • Mailata was the only NFL offensive tackle this season to earn at least an 83.0 grade in both run blocking and pass blocking.

2. Detroit Lions

Best lineup:

LT Taylor Decker
LG Jonah Jackson
C Frank Ragnow
RG Graham Glasgow
RT Penei Sewell

  • Detroit's offensive line lived up to expectations and was at times the best unit in the league this season. The group also endured some rough stretches, especially due to injuries. However, the unit enters the playoffs healthy.
  • Frank Ragnow (88.1) was the highest-graded center in the NFL this season.
Best player: Penei Sewell
  • Sewell, whose 1,178 snaps were tied for the most by an offensive tackle this season, earned a 93.1 run-blocking grade in 2023 — the second-highest figure by an offensive tackle over the past five seasons.

3. Indianapolis Colts

Best lineup:

LT Bernhard Raimann
LG Quenton Nelson
C Ryan Kelly
RG Will Fries
RT Braden Smith

  • Injuries to center Ryan Kelly and right tackle Braden Smith weakened this unit, but when the Colts played all five of their starting offensive linemen — like in the first half against the Texans in Week 18 — it was one of the best and most improved front fives in the NFL.
  • The Colts' offensive line allowed just 15 sacks all season, the third fewest in the NFL.
Best player: Bernhard Raimann
  • Raimann was one of the breakout players of the 2023 NFL season, ranking fifth among left tackles in PFF overall grade (82.3).

4. Atlanta Falcons

Best lineup:

LT Jake Matthews
LG Matthew Bergeron
C Drew Dalman
RG Chris Lindstrom
RT Kaleb McGary

  • While rookie left guard Matthew Bergeron dealt with NFL growing pains, this unit lived up to expectations and played really well, especially in run blocking late in the season.
  • The Falcons' offensive line also finished with an 87.4 pass-blocking efficiency, ranking second in the NFL.
Best player: Chris Lindstrom
  • Lindstrom struggled a bit initially, and even faced some injuries, but still ended up as the NFL's highest-graded guard (87.6).

5. Baltimore Ravens
