    The Bills offensive line was bolstered by the addition of three draft choices a couple of weeks ago. Now O-lines across the league are being re-ranked based on those additions.

    Rotoworld took the latest stab at it ranking Buffalo in the middle of the pack. Here’s their assessment.

    13. Buffalo Bills

    LT: Cordy Glenn
    LG: Andy Levitre*
    C: Eric Wood*
    RG: Chad Rinehart*
    RT: Erik Pears*

    Top reserves: OT Chris Hairston, OG Kraig Urbik*, OT Sam Young, OT Zebrie Sanders, OG Michael Jasper.

    Overview: The Bills’ 2011 offensive line graded out as the NFL’s top pass-protecting unit, according to both Pro Football Focus and Football Outsiders. Though no doubt assisted by Ryan Fitzpatrick’s quick release, Buffalo allowed a league-low 23 sacks, which is another strong vote for the argument that elite left tackle play isn’t necessarily a difference-making NFL quality. The Bills feel they improved on the left by stealing Glenn with the 41st pick in the draft, and bring back incumbent Hairston as a talented, tested backup. Similar players Urbik and Rinehart will vie for the right guard job. Wood is returning from a torn right ACL, but should be close to 100 percent by camp and has been a dominant center when healthy. While this group lacks household names, its combination of continuity, athleticism, and impressive scheming makes it quietly a top O-Line.

    Considering how much we've complained about our offensive line play over the years, 13th is a huge improvement. Hopefully Glenn will pan out and be a good left tackle, since the rest of our line is rock solid.

    I think we could be a lot higher when we're re-ranked next year. SF is too low for my tastes.

    Middle of the pack sounds about right.
