Starter(s): Eric Fisher (LT), Ben Grubbs (LG), Mitch Morse (C), Zach Fulton (RG), Jeff Allen (RT)

Reserves: Donald Stephenson, Paul Fanaika, Eric Kush, Laurent Duvernay-Tardif, Derek Sherrod

Just like last season, nobody knows what to expect from the five guys up front.

It’s a make-or-break years for Eric Fisher, which would mean something if he had worthwhile competition at left tackle. With Rodney Hudson gone, Ben Grubbs becomes the one lineman who offers some semblance of consistency. And Mitch Morse is bound to supplant Eric Kush as the starting center, though he has a lot to learn in a short amount of time.

Then you have Donald Stephenson and Jeff Allen. Year after year, they finish in the bottom fourth of Pro Football Focus’ rankings for their respective positions—and yes, I realize that Allen was sidelined in 2014 due to injury—but their popularity seemingly never dips.

Don’t get me wrong: Zach Fulton’s rookie season was erratic at best, but he at least showed improvement throughout the last quarter of it.
