1. TRENT WILLIAMS, SAN FRANCISCO 49ERSWilliams has been with the 49ers for three seasons now and has finished all three with the highest PFF grade among offensive tackles. From 526 pass-blocking snaps in the regular season and playoffs last season, he allowed 19 total pressures, just three of which were hits or sacks.
2. LANE JOHNSON, PHILADELPHIA EAGLESJohnson dealt with injuries throughout the 2022 season but still put together his best season in pass protection since entering the NFL. His 90.1 PFF pass-blocking grade trailed only Laremy Tunsil at the position, with Johnson not allowing a single sack or hit through the regular season and playoffs.
3. LAREMY TUNSIL, HOUSTON TEXANSThe best pass-protecting tackle in football a year ago, Tunsil had an incredible 2022 season. On the field for 676 pass-blocking snaps over the course of the regular season, he allowed just one sack, three hits and 13 hurries.
4. ANDREW THOMAS, NEW YORK GIANTSA rough rookie season has long since been forgotten about, with Thomas growing into a top-five NFL tackle in his third season in the league. We’ve seen him improve every season, both as a run blocker and a pass blocker, ranking seventh at the position with an 81.0 PFF run-blocking grade and third with an 89.9 PFF pass-blocking grade last year.
5. CHRISTIAN DARRISAW, MINNESOTA VIKINGSThe 23rd selection in the 2021 NFL Draft, Darrisaw impressed as a rookie before taking a big step forward in 2022. Just two players at the position bettered the 90.6 PFF run-blocking grade produced by the former Virginia Tech standout, and while he still needs to improve his consistency in pass protection, his 82.4 PFF pass-blocking grade in 2022 was the eighth-best mark at the position.
6. JORDAN MAILATA, PHILADELPHIA EAGLESMailata’s rise from the NFL’s International Player Pathway program, having never played college football to becoming one of the best tackles in football, has been incredible. Drafted in the seventh round of the 2018 NFL Draft, he didn’t see a snap in his first two seasons in the league but has produced PFF grades of 81.0 or better in each of the past two years, forming the best tackle duo in the league with Lane Johnson.
7. TRISTAN WIRFS, TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERSOne of the most natural pass protectors in the game, Wirfs has produced PFF pass-blocking grades of 82.0 or better in each of his three NFL seasons. It’s true that he was aided by Tom Brady’s quick release over the span, but allowing just six total pressures from 696 pass-blocking snaps in 2022 is still an incredible feat.
8. KOLTON MILLER, LAS VEGAS RAIDERSMiller was viewed as a bit of a project as the 15th pick in the 2018 NFL Draft. But after a rough rookie season, he showed substantial growth between then and 2021. He has produced PFF pass-blocking grades of 81.0 or better in each of the past three seasons and was the 12th-highest-graded run blocker at the position last year, too.
9. RASHAWN SLATER, LOS ANGELES CHARGERSThe 13th selection of the 2021 NFL Draft, Slater impressed immediately as a rookie, finishing 2021 with 80.0-plus grades both in pass protection and as a run blocker. He seemed on his way to an even better year in 2022, but a Week 3 biceps injury that required surgery cost him the rest of his campaign. Based on what we’ve seen from him so far, though, there’s little reason to doubt his credentials as a top-10 tackle in 2023.
10. PENEI SEWELL, DETROIT LIONSThere’s a little bit of projection in putting Sewell ahead of at least the next right tackle on this list, but it’s a projection I feel good enough about, given what we saw from him both in college and through two NFL seasons. His 83.0 PFF run-blocking grade last season ranked fourth in the league at the position. He also improved in pass protection, allowing seven fewer pressures on 19 more pass-blocking snaps than the year before.
11. RYAN RAMCZYK, NEW ORLEANS SAINTSWe’ve probably already seen the peak of Ramczyk’s career, but the 29-year-old's floor is still likely a top-five right tackle in 2023. Across six NFL seasons, his PFF pass-blocking and run-blocking grades have yet to drop below 70.0.
12. RONNIE STANLEY, BALTIMORE RAVENSOn his best day, Stanley is one of the most natural pass protectors in football, allowing just 10 total pressures on 543 pass-blocking snaps back in 2019. It’s been a long road back from injury for the former sixth overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. He missed the bulk of the 2020 and 2021 seasons, but he looked close to being back to his best after returning to the field in Week 5 last season.
13. DAVID BAKHTIARI, GREEN BAY PACKERSHealth is the only thing keeping Bakhtiari out of the top 10, and likely the top five, here. When he is healthy, you’ll struggle to find a better pass-protecting left tackle. He allowed just 10 pressures from 339 pass-blocking snaps in 2022.
14. ORLANDO BROWN JR., CINCINNATI BENGALSBrown has developed into a high-floor NFL player, with his PFF grade sitting between 73.0 and 78.0 in each of the past four seasons. Five seasons into his NFL career, it’s fair to wonder if he’ll ever be a top-10 tackle. But at the very worst, he is a more-than-capable starting player on the left side.
15. BRADEN SMITH, INDIANAPOLIS COLTSIn five seasons with the Colts, Smith has produced PFF pass-blocking grades of 68.0 or better every season, while his PFF run-blocking grade hasn’t dipped below 75.0 in each of the past four seasons. With the development of Bernhard Raimann on the left side, the Colts quietly have one of the best tackle duos in the NFL.
