Top 10 in 2014: The best interior offensive linemen in the NFL today


6. Evan Mathis

Mathis has found a home in his 30s

Mathis has had an interesting career journey, having started his career as a backup in Carolina during the 2005 season, becoming a starter the next year and then hardly playing in ’07 and ’08. After bouncing around a bit, he finally landed in Philadelphia, where he’s started 47 out of 48 games and made his first Pro Bowl team at the age of 32. And now, he has a hefty contract to show for his never-give-up mentality.

5. Jahri Evans

Evans is a consistent performer in New Orleans

There’s a reason the Saints inked Evans to a seven-year, $56.7 million contract, by far the biggest dollar total doled out to an offensive guard; the guy is among the best in the business. When the 2015 Pro Bowl roster is announced, it’s a safe bet that Evans will be on it, as he’s represented New Orleans in Hawaii following each of the past five seasons. In his career, this rock on the line has started 126 out of 128 possible games.

    LOLOLOL. He helped panthers excel to the 26th Ranked Offense in the NFL.

    • Illiterate or Ignorant?

      Maybe you are reading the wrong article; this ranks individual linemen, not offensives. Before you make yourself look like a clown, go read and their analysis. Not only did he make all-pro (this means that NFL professionals believe that he was top-2 at his position fyi), but he had one of the best individual pff grades (this means that independent analysts have statistics that put him at the top).
