Another one of the major reasons for the Falcons’ monumental slide from Super Bowl contender to last place team in the NFC South has been the failed rebuild of the offensive line.

Against Washington, the Falcons used their seventh different starting offensive line combination when rookie Ryan Schraeder opened at right tackle. The current starters are left tackle Lamar Holmes, left guard Justin Blalock, center Joe Hawley, right guard Peter Konz and Schraeder.

The state of flux and the development of the unit has led to quarterback Matt Ryan being one of the most-hit quarterbacks in the league. The Falcons have given up 115 hits, 11th overall. But several teams like Cleveland, Buffalo, Jacksonville and Washington have started multiple quarterbacks.
