64. Taylor Lewan, LT, Tennessee Titans (unranked)

Over the first half of the season, Taylor Lewan was the best offensive tackle in the game, and though the second half was more inconsistent, he was dramatically better overall in 2016 than in previous seasons (in the run game, in particular). The one real black mark on Lewanís season was 14 penalties, more than one of which were extremely foolish and costly. That said, he allowed his QB to hit the ground just twice over the entire season, and it took 10 games for the first one of those to come.

Best performance: Week 3 vs. Raiders, 90.7 grade

Key stat: Lewan surrendered just two sacks or hits all season.

66. Jack Conklin, RT, Tennessee Titans

Jack Conklinís rookie season was extremely impressive, and even more so when you consider that he was a player that was supposed to struggle badly early in his NFL career when it came to pass protection. While itís true to say that he (and the rest of the Titansí offensive line) received more help than other players around the league, itís also true that he regularly didnít need it; he allowed only two sacks over the season, was flagged just twice, and run-blocked well over the year. Conklinís development going forward will be fascinating to watch, because he dramatically exceeded early expectations.

Best performance: Week 15 vs. Chiefs, 87.7 grade

Key stat: Conklin allowed two sacks all season.

72. Jurrell Casey, DI, Tennessee Titans (81)

The next two players on this list had remarkably similar seasons, and itís only right that they are in lock-step in the rankings, with Jurrell Caseyís overall grade of 85.4 narrowly edging Gerald McCoyís 85.2 mark. Casey racked up five sacks an 51 total QB pressures over the season, and like McCoy, was more of a pass-rushing threat than he was an impact run defender. This said, his quickness and ability to disrupt were there consistently throughout the season.

Best performance: Week 8 vs. Jaguars, 87.4 grade

Key stat: Casey recorded 51 total QB pressures and five batted passes over the season.
