The 3DownNation all-decade CFL team: offensive line

A stellar offensive line is one of the best assets a team can have. Controlling the line of scrimmage is essential to the run game, passing attack, and managing the clock.

We’ve comprised the best offensive line of the decade, made up of three tackles, three guards, and two centres.

The player who finished atop the reader ballot has his name marked with an asterisk (*).
