Our o-line's great at run blocking and average to slightly above average at pass blocking imo. That's probably good enough for top 5 but it's not like having the Pats' line back there in terms of pass protection.
Plus, first year starters tend to hold on to the ball a little longer, especially ones touted to be 3-4 year projects.
