All of that “Dorsey—our lord and savior” talk? It doesn’t apply here. This is going to be painful to watch.

For reasons unknown, Jeff Allen and Donald Stephenson have developed cult-like followings.

In fairness, the former of the two barely scratched the surface of 2014 before suffering a season-ending injury. That being said, Allen regularly struggled throughout the two years leading up to that point, and transitioning to tackle only steepens the uphill the climb.

Contrary to popular belief, Stephenson hasn’t fared any better in the big leagues. He rarely saw field in the wake of last year’s suspension, and opponents (see: Von Miller) humbled him every chance they got.

Allen and Stephenson have talent, they just haven’t been able to shake their flaws. Until that changes, right tackle figures to be the weakest link of the offensive line.
