It's really hard to find one quality starting offensive tackle in the NFL, let alone two. Whether either of the Bears' starting tackles qualifies as a quality player is up for debate, but both Charles Leno Jr. and Bobby Massie are, at the very least, competent starters in the league.
According to the analytics team at Pro Football Focus, neither Leno nor Massie ranks as a top-25 player at their position, however. Both Bears starters were left off of PFF's new list of the game's 25 best blindside protectors, one that included Giants rookie first-round pick, Andrew Thomas.
Massie was the Bears' 11th highest-graded player on offense in 2020, finishing the season with a 63.2 grade from PFF. It was the worst season score Massie's received in his career. As for Leno, he finished 2019 with a 58.6, which was his worst mark since his rookie season (53.6).
Massie was PFF's 65th overall tackle last year, while Leno was 87th. It's easy to see why they were left off the list.
