2021 GZL Most Productive Offensive Lineman (FINAL)
By Keith Van Wagner
Special to gzl-football.com

For the past couple of seasons I've ranked the Offensive Lineman based on their productivity. I use a simple formula that takes into account their pancakes and sacks allowed. Here's how the best fared in 2021.

Offensive Tackles

1. Greg Robinson, OAK (99.75 points)
2. Oliver Zebedee, DEN (91.25)
3. Austin Laurie, PIT (89.25)
4. Eric Fisher, BUF (83.25)
5. Kenny Wagner, SD (76.50)
6. Larry Cox, STL (72.00)
7. Terron Armstead, GB (71.50)
8. Chad Jamison, GB (71.25)

Amazing to note that the 2 GB tackles are on the list and between them they allowed 1 sack on the year. Larry Cox was the highest ranked OT without a sack allowed. Some names on here from last year as well. Robinson was the top ranked Tackle in 2020 as well. Zebedee and Laurie were in the Top 5 last year as well.

Worst of all the Tackles is Thomas Fernandez, ARI (44 pancakes/11 sacks allowed - -33.25).

Offensive Guards

1. Jake Long, OAK (85.00)
2. Frankie Gerard, TB (80.25)
3. Dallas Thomas, HOU (71.75)
4. Ty Blackmon, STL (65.00)
5. Quentin Raney, NYJ (64.50)
6. Lawrence Sanders, IND (64.25)
7. Lance Nguyen, DAL (62.75)
8. Khalid Croons, DEN (61.75)
9. Byron Coles, CHI (60.50)
10. David Yankey, BUF (60.25)

The worst OG was Detroit’s Shannon Crockett with 52 pancakes and 11 sacks allowed for a score of -22.25)

The highest ranked pair of Guards were Denver’s. Along with Croons, Rich Jacques ranked 13th overall with 59.25.


1. Will Figgins, CHI (55.00)
2. Alex Mack, NO (53.50)
3. Nick Mangold, KC (48.50)
4. Kristofer O’Dowd, STL (41.50)
5. Tyson Steffen, DAL (39.75)
6. Anthony Madison, GB (39350)
7. Maurkice Pouncey, DEN (39.25)
8. Joe Madsen, CAR (37.50)
9. Chris McDonald, ATL (37.00)
10. Kyle Long, MIA (36.75)

Not only was Will Figgins the best, he’s the only starting C that did not allow a sack last year.

At first I was confused because there were only 31 Centers with enough stats to be starters, but then I realized the Seahawks play one of their Guards at Center.

Worst Center is Nolan Hoffmann, WAS (28 pancakes/7 sacks allowed: -19.25)
