Bengals must replace large percentage of lost O-line snaps this offseason
- The loss of RG Kevin Zeitler and LT Andrew Whitworth represented a 39 percent market share of 2016 snaps.
- Zeitler and Whitworth ranked inside the top five at their respective positions, with pass-blocking efficiency marks of 97.7 and 98.0, respectively.
- Cedric Ogbuehi, expected to replace Whitworth in the starting lineup, recorded the fourth-worst pass-blocking efficiency among offensive tackles, at 91.4.
- The Bengals would be wise to invest an early draft pick in their offensive line. Pro Football Focus’ most recent mock draft saw Cincinnati center Chase Roullier from Wyoming.
