The Falcons’ line has improved dramatically over the past two seasons, going from a liability to a strength which helped turn the team into Super Bowl contenders. Known mostly for their proficiency as run blockers, left guard Andy Levitre has shown impressive ability to protect Matt Ryan as well.
Levitre was the highest rated Falcon in pass blocking last season, and was in the top half of the NFL in that category. As a run blocker, he excels alongside his teammates, as they pave the way for the NFL’s most lethal offense. His play in Atlanta has been the best of his career, and the line looks as strong as ever, as the Falcons looks to make another deep postseason run in 2017.
