Nick Mangold is getting up there in age, but he is still one of the best centers in the national football league. The 30 year old is a five-time Pro Bowler and three-time All-Pro player. Since his career began in 2006, Mangold has only missed two games and was a starter from day one. Mangold is a terrific leader and a solid player against both the run and the pass. Mangold is maybe the most important Jet player, as their entire offense would break down if he was not out there.
Vollmer is a monster standing at 6'8 and weighing 320 pounds. The 29 year old former second round pick has established himself as one of the best tackles in football as he rarely gives up a sack. In 2010 in sixteen games for the Patriots, Vollmer only allowed one sack. Vollmer has had some injury issues over his career, one including this season when his year was cut short with a bad leg injury. Vollmer made the second team All-Pro back in 2010, but has somehow never made it to the Pro Bowl.
The Dolphins made a terrific signing when they snagged Brandon Albert from the Chiefs early on in free-agency to a five year, 47 million dollar deal. Albert was tremendous in 2013, making the Pro Bowl. Albert was a big key to why running back Jamaal Charles had a huge season. Albert was a first rounder back in 2008 and is now 29 years old. The Dolphins offensive line was awful last year, but Albert changes a lot.
On the right side New England has Vollmer, on the left they have Solder. Solder is still very young at only 26 years old and was a first round pick back in 2011. Solder had a great rookie season, only allowing three sacks. Solder has stayed pretty healthy for New England and has done a great job of protecting Tom Brady's blindside. Solder is the same height and weight as Vollmer, giving New England a monster offensive line. I expect Solder to get some All-Pro consideration in 2014.
