Best Interior Offensive Tackle Tandems Coming Into the 2019 Season

The Top Ten
1 Terron Armstead and Ryan Ramczyk (Saints)

One major reason why the passing game has been so good for so long is that the Saints always find the best tackles out there. It's unreal to imagine. When these two are protecting Brees' weak side, magic happens for that offense to do unspeakable things.

2 Andrew Whitworth and Rob Havenstein (Rams)

Two good veteran tackles and a pair of linemen anybody would want, really. Whitworth is still playing like he was with the Bengals, and Havenstein has shown that he can be a reliable right tackle, if not one of the best. There aren't very many good right tackles in this league.

3 Lane Johnson and Jason Peters (Eagles)

Both are great tackle veterans, only one's ceiling is kind of thinning a bit with injury after injury in recent years. Thus, they got a backup they drafted. Lane Johnson, since coming back from his suspension a few seasons ago, has just become a great right tackle. There's a reason why the Eagles are always a contender when the trenches are built just right.

4 Mitchell Schwartz and Eric Fisher (Chiefs)

Schwartz was robbed of not getting the Pro Bowl, clearly their best blocker on that line easily. And while Eric Fisher is not as bad as some of the calls he gets pinpointed to, just think about this: you would not have wanted Luke Joeckel as your left tackle, right?

5 David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga (Packers)

Bakhtiari is one of the best left tackles in football, and I feel Bulaga is going to be more diminished than how he performed in his prime. This is more or less due to the fact that Bakhtiari is probably the only really great lineman up front that isn't all out of whack.

I think they should be in the top 5. Bakhtiari is the best left tackle in football. When Bulaga is healthy, he is one of the league's best right tackles.

6 Trent Williams and Morgan Moses (Redskins)

There's an underrated set of tackles here. Trent Williams is another great left tackle who has shown his prowess over the course of his career when healthy. Morgan Moses is no slouch at right tackle.

7 Joe Staley and Mike McGlinchey (49ers)

Well, the 49ers got a bit better on the offensive line. Too bad their guard is atrocious, but otherwise, it makes up for great tackle play, making them unpredictable on the offense. There were a couple of times they almost pulled off some big upsets in a few games, keeping the pressure real tight.

8 Taylor Lewan and Jack Conklin (Titans)

The Titans pulled a very interesting experiment here, grabbing two guys who were at odds with one another due to the different Michigan colleges they represented. They actually make for a good to great pairing.

9 Ronnie Stanley and Orlando Brown Jr. (Ravens)

Orlando Brown was worth the steal for being in the right tackle position. He played that part pretty well. Ronnie Stanley is okay, but he might be considered the weakest part of this pretty well-rounded offensive line when healthy.

10 Charles Leno Jr. and Bobby Massie (Bears)
The Contenders
11 Isaiah Wynn and Marcus Cannon (Patriots)

I feel like if I don't at least talk about the bounce-back of Isaiah Wynn, that would be a crying shame. Seeing that when he went down, things were going to get fascinating. If that line would crumble, that never happened, though.

Marcus Cannon, when healthy, is one of the better tackles in the league. I just think this Patriots' passing offense is going to have a bounce-back from average to good again. That's all I'm sensing, even despite losing Gronk in blocking. They should be okay enough for Brady to do his magic on the field.
