Top NFL Free Agent Offensive Lineman 2023


The 2023 NFL offseason is moving with the combine and free agency. The 2023 NFL Draft is just over a month away. Teams are making moves to improve their rosters. Here’s what is happening in terms of the offensive line in free agency. A look at the top free agent offensive lineman.

Top 2023 Offensive Linemen in Free Agency

It’s obvious, pass-blocking and protecting the quarterback happens to be one of the most important parts of the game. Protect your quarterback and get after the other team’s QB. It’s a recipe for success. There are some solid players on the open market that can give teams a boost or some depth.

Orlando Brown Jr.

Last offseason, the Kansas City Chiefs tagged Brown as their franchise player, but he wasn’t thrilled about it. He even threatened to sit out the 2022 season. However, he ultimately decided to play and didn’t perform well at the start.

In the second half of the season, he re-established himself as one of the best left tackles in the game. As of now, he’s considered the top offensive lineman who will become a free agent soon.

Mike McGlinchey

Since being drafted in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, McGlinchey has had some nagging injuries. In 2021, he tore his quad. However, he bounced back in 2022 with the San Francisco 49ers as a reliable and steady right tackle. Therefore, he’s a great choice for teams that need assistance on their offensive line.

Ben Powers

Last season with the Baltimore Ravens, Powers was one of the best at protecting the quarterback. He’s a massive 6-foot-4, 340-pounder who didn’t allow any sacks during the entire season. Although he’s not the best run blocker, he’s still the number one guard that will be on the market this spring.

Kaleb McGary

While he’s a candidate for the franchise tag, there’s a chance that McGary might hit free agency. If that happens, he’ll be one of the most sought-after tackles on the market.

McGary was a first-round pick in 2019 and excels at run blocking, which was evident during his time with the run-heavy Atlanta Falcons o-line in 2022. If he can improve in pass protection, he has the potential to be an elite tackle.

Jason Kelce

Kelce has spent his entire 12-year NFL career with the Eagles and is considering retirement. If he doesn’t retire, he’s expected to sign a one-year deal to finish his career in Philadelphia, where he’s a fan favorite. However, if he decides to test the free-agent market, he’ll attract plenty of attention as a veteran player.

Jawaan Taylor

In 2022, Taylor excelled at protecting second-year quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Pro Football Focus reported that he allowed pressure on only 2.5% of dropbacks, which was the third-lowest mark for tackles in the league. While his run blocking needs improvement, his pass protection abilities make him an attractive choice for teams in need of a tackle.

Isaac Seumalo

Seumalo had been dealing with injuries in the past few years. However, he made a comeback in 2022 as one of the most dependable linemen for the Philadelphia Eagles. If he can stay healthy, he’ll be a valuable addition to any offensive line for the 2023 season and the long haul.

Dalton Risner

Last season, Risner was one of the few bright spots for the Denver Broncos that had an extremely rough season all around. As of now, he’s also one of the top guards that will become available in the spring. Risner is an impressive pass protector and would be a reliable addition to any offensive line in need of stabilization.

Ethan Pocic

Pocic ended up posting career marks in 2023 with the Cleveland Browns. He was both a solid pass and a run blocker. As long as Jason Kelce retires or re-signs with Philadelphia, Pocic is likely the best center who will be available in free agency.

More Offensive Linemen Entering 2023 NFL Free Agency

Kevin Beachum hits the market after doing his part for the Arizona Cardinals in 2022. He’s probably a top 10 offensive lineman on the market. The offensive tackle is looking for a new team where he will bring consistency and durability.

Taylor Lewan is available after being cut while Rodney Hudson, George Fant, and Justin Pugh are also 2023 free agents.
