2015 Top 5 Free Agent Offensive Linemen

Updated on March 4, 2015

Teams will look to these bouts to protect their franchise quarterback and open up holes in the running game. Today I rank the top five free agent offensive lineman.

5. Stefen Wisniewski

Bio: Joining Oakland in 2011, Stefen Wisniewski has been affective playing both guard and center. He is a big reason the Raiders are always at the top in fewest sacks allowed.

Bottom line: Wisniewski is a solid starter in his prime. So why are the Raiders being linked to others as his replacement?

Possible landing spot: Kansas City

4. Orlando Franklin

Bio: Joining Denver in 2011, Orlando Franklin has been one of the leagues most versatile offensive linemen. Over the past four years, he has started all 63 he played in.

Bottom line: He excelled as a guard last season, and Franklin's versatility to help out at right tackle will earn him money in a thin offensive line market.

Possible landing spot: Washington

3. Rodney Hudson

Bio: Joining Kansas City in 2011, Rodney Hudson switched from guard to center as a rookie. Over the past two years, he has started all but one game.

Bottom line: There are whispers that Hudson's goal is to become the NFL's highest paid center but he doesn't look as dominant as Alex Mack was before his injury.

Possible landing spot: Oakland

2. Brian Bulaga

Bio: In five years in Green Bay, Brian Bulaga has established himself as one of the best young right tackles in football. As a rookie, he became the youngest player to start and win in a Super Bowl.

Bottom line: In a tackle thin market, Bulaga offers rock solid starter status on the right side.

Possible landing spot: Tampa Bay

1. Mike Iupati

Bio: In the past five years, Mike Iupati has proven to be one of the top young run blocking guards in the league. In five years in San Francisco, he has started 68 games and has been named t three pro bowls.

Bottom line: He has been among the best maulers in the run game at guard in the entire league throughout his career. But Iupati is not great in pass protection and isn't coming off his best season.

Possible landing spot: Tampa Bay
