In no uncertain terms, the Cincinnati Bengals sported one of the worst offensive line units in the league last year. Injuries, free agency attrition and poor previous draft picks have led to a massive drop-off up front.

Even so, the unit played better down the stretch. Joe Mixon set two single-game career-highs in rushing, as the unit began to gel.

Cast your vote and sound off on the Bengals’ Offensive Lineman of the Year!

Cordy Glenn, offensive tackle: Though he played in a limited amount of games because of a concussion, Glenn sported the highest Pro Football Focus score on the line with a 68.4. The offense and running game boosted its performance greatly upon the return of Glenn in his post-bye return.

Trey Hopkins, center: The former undrafted pick had quite the rise in prominence this year. He took over the starting center job from Billy Price and performed pretty well. His PFF score was 62.4 and he only had two penalties committed in 2019. Hopkins was awarded with a long-term extension after the season concluded.

Michael Jordan, guard: The rookie interior lineman saw time at both right and left guard and while there were bumps along the way, as indicated by his 43.7 PFF score, growth and potential were noticeable. He’s the youngest player on the Bengals’ roster, but showed maturity as things begin to gel late in the year.
