Offensive Line (8)

  • Riley Reiff
  • Rob Sims
  • Dominic Raiola
  • Larry Warford
  • LaAdrian Waddle
  • Corey Hilliard
  • Travis Swanson
  • Cornelius Lucas

The interior line is set with Rob Sims, Dominic Raiola and Larry Warford as your respective starting left guard, center and right guard. Riley Reiff is locked in as the starting left tackle for a second straight year, and while it remains to be seen who will take over the starting right tackle position between LaAdrian Waddle and Corey Hilliard, it’s safe to assume that they’ll at least be making the team.

Travis Swanson was drafted in the third-round of this year’s draft to eventually take over for Dominic Raiola, and despite his early struggles in camp, he’ll be serving as a backup center who can swing over to help out at left guard for Rob Sims.

Cornelius Lucas gets the privilege of being dealt the final spot due to his massive frame and tremendous upside. Also, don’t sleep on Michael Williams who’s back in action at his new position.
