The New Orleans Saints make the top five of the PFF offensive line rankings

The Saints are once again going to have a strong offensive line in the upcoming season
After so many years of having an offensive line with plenty of accolades, the New Orleans Saints are no longer surprised to continue to see themselves involved among big and important mentions and taking important positions in different rankings. The latest PFF offensive line rankings of the NFL are in, and the Saints’ line is among the top five.
Steve Palazzolo, after doing critical analysis, ranked the Saints at number four on the list, and both the fans and the team remain accustomed to seeing these positions always carry their name high. Among Palazzolo’s highlights for the Saints is the recovery of their two star bookend tackles in Ryan Ramczyk and Terron Armstead. It’s no secret that both players come with great motivation to show what they are capable of, especially knowing that entering contract years is considered a great incentive.
“Both players are an excellent combination of power, speed, and technique. Armstead earned an 84.9 rating in 2020, seventh-best among tackles. And he now had 80-plus ratings in five of his last six seasons. Ramczyk took a step back from previous levels last year but still posted a 79.4 overall mark, the worst grade of his four-year career. That shows how good he has been and will continue to be,” added Palazzolo.
Many of the players featured on the Saints’ offensive line show a lot of promise this season and, as a result, we can expect to see this team once again put out one of the best lines in the entire league. It’s no secret that this department is critical to the Saints’ chances of reaching a Super Bowl again, which is their top priority this season.
