Philadelphia’s Jason Peters Named Top Left Tackle, Matt Light at No. 18 in Bleacher Report’s Top 1,000
Offensive lineman are the unsung heroes of an NFL team. These hard-operating men in the trenches in no way look to obtain enough credit for defending a quarterback, specially individuals at the left tackle place.
Left tackles are the primary pass blockers on a team’s offensive line. They must be mindful and agile to safeguard their QB from defensive ends who rush from the left side, most quarterbacks’ “blind side.”
Bleacher Report is placing with each other a 20-portion, ten-week series profiling the best one,000 current NFL players. Week two breaks down the talent sets of the finest 32 left tackles in the league.
The Eagles’ Jason Peters, the Browns’ Joe Thomas and the Texans’ Duane Brown were ranked in the top rated 3 spots, respectively. Patriots left tackle Matt Light came in at No. 18.
Bleacher Report’s evaluation of every left tackle consists of measuring their agility, pass block speed and electrical power, strength, method and size amongst other skills.
The subsequent installment will debut on Monday, Feb. 27 and feature fullbacks.
