Rankings below based on minimum 150 pass-pro snaps. “Pass-pro PR” is a metric I developed to gauge pass protection quality that looks at hits, hurries, pressures and sacks allowed, along with penalties taken, per pass-pro snap. All rankings based on 151 draft-eligible interior offensive lineman in my database.
