As the game of football keeps evolving, one thing that always remains the same is that games are won and lost in the trenches. We will be keeping an eye on some linemen on both sides of the ball as we approach the combine next week. This first part will look at offensive linemen. We all know the fate of the line relies heavily on what the Packers decide to do with Bryan Bulaga. While he is the main decision there are others. The front office will need to make decisions with other free agents Jared Veldherr, John Leglue, and Jason Spriggs. There are also rumors around what to do with Lane Taylor and his contract. The Packers could be in the business of acquiring more linemen than it appears on the surface.

The two consistencies I was looking for when reviewing linemen all over the board were athleticism and best fits for zone schemes. Some of these players are developmental projects while others could plug and play. Their testing is very important on where they could land on the Packers Big Board. Let’s take a look at some players to watch through this process.
