Pro Football Focus says Detroit Lions have No. 1 center and No. 3 guard in the NFL

Heading into the 2019 season, one of the biggest question marks for the Detroit Lions was their offensive line. Many believed there was a chance they could gel and become formidable while others ripped GM Bob Quinn for not addressing the OL in the offseason.

Through four games, in my opinion, the offensive line has been about what I expected, not bad but not great.

Well, according to Pro Football Focus, at least a couple of pieces of the Lions offensive line have been great.

On Tuesday, Gordon McGuinness of PFF published an article titled, “PFF Rankings: Top Offensive Linemen Rankings through Week 5,” which as the title suggests, ranks the best offensive linemen in the NFL through the first five weeks of the season.

McGuinness has Frank Ragnow as the No. 1 center in the NFL through five games and Graham Glasgow ranked as the No. 3 guard.

From Pro Football Focus:

Ragnow has moved back to center in his second season in the NFL, and the results have been impressive, seeing him produce the highest grade at the position in the NFL through five weeks. He has been stellar as a run blocker, producing a 79.5 run-blocking grade which is comfortably the best at the position.

Glasgow has been just ok in pass protection this season, allowing a hit and eight hurries from 133 pass-blocking snaps, but he has really impressed as a run blocker since kicking back to guard. His 87.7 PFF run-blocking grade trails only Nelson at the position, putting him on course for a career year.

Nation, do you think the Lions offensive line will hold up as the season goes on?
