Welcome to another Madden NFL 17 Connected Franchise Top 10 Sleeper video. Today we will be going over the big fat guys who are paid the big bucks to protect the quarterback: offensive linemen.

10. Shaq Mason (New England Patriots)

23 Years Old

74 Overall

73 Speed

81 Acceleration

78 Pass Block

Mason’s greatest strength is his athleticism. He has one of the highest speed ratings in the game for an offensive lineman, 73, and 81 acceleration. Mason also has a decent strength rating of 86, so he’s not going to get pushed around easily. His pass block rating is about average, but he struggles as a run blocker. You want to use him as a puller on power o’s and counters to block smaller players so he won’t get exposed as easily.

9. Eric Fisher (Kansas City Chiefs)

25 Years Old

78 Overall

74 Agility

82 Acceleration

87 Impact Block

The former #1 pick is among the top of the lineman class when it comes to acceleration and agility ratings. Fisher also has 87 impact block, so you will be able to get some pancakes running behind him. He’s an average run blocker and a slightly better pass blocker, so he’s good enough that he should handle average d linemen. Another bonus for Fisher is that he has 94 stamina.

8. J. Humphries (Arizona Cardinals)

22 Years Old

75 Overall

88 Strength

83 Run Block

84 Impact Block

Humphries has 88 strength, 83 run block, and 84 impact block, so you have a pretty good idea of what he is good at. He is an average pass blocker, but the big boy has 92 stamina, so you can run behind him until the wheels fall off.

7. Donovan Smith (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

23 Years Old

74 Overall

72 Speed

88 Strength

81 Acceleration

Smith has great athletic numbers in every category, so you can just focus on getting up his pass and run block ratings, tuning the 23 year old into a well-rounded Left Tackle.

6. Ali Marpet (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)

23 Years Old

76 Overall

73 Speed

88 Strength

83 Acceleration

Marpet has the athleticism and the strength of an elite offensive lineman. He also has decent pass, run, and impact block ratings. At 23, I would attempt to steal him from the owner in your league who has him ASAP.

5. Lae’el Collins (Dallas Cowboys)

23 Years Old

77 Overall

72 Speed

94 Impact Block

80 Run Block

Let’s just say if you’re a linebacker, Collins’ is one of the last people you would want to see. He’s a decent run blocker, but all that matters when it comes Collins is his 94 impact block. He’s a serious weapon.

4. Jake Matthews (Atlanta Falcons)

24 Years Old

80 Overall

88 Strength

83 Acceleration

86 Impact Block

Matthews has one of the highest acceleration and agility ratings for a lineman, he’s an above average pass blocker, has 86 impact block, and 91 stamina. The only knock against Matthews is his run block rating lags a bit behind, so I would focus on that as soon as you get him.

3. C. Tretter (Green Bay Packers)

25 Years Old

83 Overall

89 Strength

87 Pass Block

87 Impact

Tretter is an above average run blocker and the best pass blocker on the list. He also has the highest strength rating on the list at 89, to go along with 86 impact block. This makes for a devastating combo, so you had better make sure your d tackles are good to go facing him.

2. Ryan Kelly (Indianapolis Colts)

23 Years Old

78 Overall

71 Speed

84 Pass Block

81 Impact Block

Kelly is great on the move with 71 speed, 73 agility, and 83 acceleration while also being a good overall blocker with a quick development trait. The 23 year old has loads of potential to turn into a monster for your offensive line in no time

1. Jack Conklin (Tennessee Titans)

22 Years Old

82 Overall

72 Speed

85 Pass Block

83 Run Block

Conklin isn’t the most athletic or strongest, but he makes up for it being a great blocker—especially for his age. He has 85 pass block, 83 run block, and 81 impact block at only 22 years old, and he’s a quick potential. Snag him today and have your Right Tackle for the next 10 years.

I have been playing football games since 99’. All starting with the NFL Game Day demo and NFL Blitz on PlayStation, then I moved on to Madden for the next 5 years, where I really didn't know what I was going yet. I flirted with NFL 2K for a year, but have played Madden and NCAA (up until its demise last year) ever since steadily improving my game each year and developing a passion for the X’s and O’s part of football.
