Burning 2019 Falcons questions: What can we expect from Atlanta’s offensive line?

Matt Ryan somehow pulled together a 2018 season that was similar in productivity to his MVP year in 2016. But he did that behind an offensive line that allowed 42 sacks and a whopping 108 quarterback hits.

It didn’t help that Devonta Freeman landed on injured reserve, but the line couldn’t get enough push to get anything going on the ground, either. The Falcons finished the season ranked No. 27 in the NFL with 1,573 yards on the ground.

Both of Atlanta’s starting guards landed on injured reserve, and Ryan Schraeder’s performance declined, leading to the team’s decision to release him following the 2018 season.
