Draft Strategy: Offensive Line

Cleveland Browns v Cincinnati Bengals

The offensive line is not slated for an overhaul like the running backs or linebackers, and it isn’t in need of a significant addition like safety or receiver.

Andre Smith and the offensive line could use some shuffling

After the shebacle in Detroit, it’s pretty apparent that the Bengals offensive line – and especially their pass protection – need some significant improvement.
