Top 10 Offensive Guards in the NFL

1. Marshall Yanda
Yanda seemed to be the only major piece on the Ravens that did not go down to injury. He just continued to dominate the league, and last year he was named to the All-Pro team for the fourth time, and his second straight appearance on the first team. 

2. Josh Sitton 

Sitton has been a second team All-Pro player for the past three years and may be underrated. He has been so consistent and has helped provide a power game in Green Bay. 

3. David DeCastro 

DeCastro is the best swinging guard in the league. He has good movement but is still a mauler, especially when he can get a head of steam on him. 

4. Kelechi Osemele

Osemele flashed his variety of skills playing seemingly every line position in his four years in Baltimore. At guard he is a mauler and one of the best, and now on a stacked offensive line and Oakland he should be able to slide in easily and turn it into one of the best lines. 

5. Trai Turner 

Turner helped in launching the vicious two-headed rushing attack that was Cam Newton and Jonathan Stewart. Turner could have been ranked higher, but this was really his first breakout year, and the question has to be whether it was Newton and his ability to freeze defenders in their tracks due to his versatility, or if the line really was holding their own for him in the run first offense. 

6. Zack Martin 

Martin is one of the best run blockers in the league. He is one of the driving forces that makes the Dallas Cowboys offensive line such a force and at only 25 years of age, he should not have reached his ceiling yet. 

7. Kevin Zeitler 

Zeitler has helped inspire the Bengals offensive line into one of the more complete units in the league. Zeitler is a stud in the running game which is key for the Bengals because they have been a run first team for years. 

8. TJ Lang 

Lang has been one of the most consistent and most talented guards in the league for about five years now. He has only missed two career games, but this off-season underwent o

9.Gabe Jackson

Jackson was just another power piece to Oakland and their talented offensive line. He has started in 28 of the Raiders 32 games since being drafted. 

10.Justin Pugh

The former top twenty pick is living up to his name. He has never missed a career start and has improved in his skills every year. At this point you should only expect him to climb higher by this time next year.
