Scott Wells: A
Scott Wells is going to his first career Pro Bowl, but he has always been a solid, yet unappreciated player. This year, though, Wells had the best year of any of the other linemen and is clearly deserving to make his first Pro Bowl.
Josh Sitton: B+
Sitton wasn't quite as good as he was last year, when people hailed him as the best guard in football, but he still had a solid season that was briefly interrupted with an injury midseason. I expect him to hold onto the guard position for a long time.
Bryan Bulaga: A-
Bulaga wasn't necessarily drafted to be the right tackle of the future, but it appears as though that is the best spot for him. Bulaga had a solid season this year, and his steady improvement shows that Thompson made a good move to pick him in the first round in 2010.
T.J. Lang: B
Lang isn't necessarily the best player at his position, but he is a solid guard who had a solid year. The Packers could probably do better at the position, but as long as Lang continues to play reasonably well, he will likely hold onto the job next year.
Marshall Newhouse: B
Newhouse took over for Chad Clifton in Week 5, an injury that scared everyone. However, the young Newhouse surprised many with his solid performance over the 11 games that he played in place of Clifton. If he continues to develop, he could become Clifton's replacement, especially if first-round pick Sherrod doesn't pan out.
Evan Dietrich-Smith: B-
Dietrich-Smith is more well-known for getting his arm stomped on by Ndamukong Suh than anything else. But in the games that he was in, he held down the fort solidly in replacement of Josh Sitton.
Chad Clifton: C+
Chad Clifton didn't play for very long this year, but the fact that the injury kept him sidelined for so long is a sign that the end is coming for Clifton, especially since they already have several players that are looking to be his possible successor.
Derek Sherrod: D
For a first-round pick, Sherrod did close to nothing in his rookie year, culminating in him getting sidelined with a nasty injury late in the season. In the preseason, Sherrod struggled when the Packers tried to switch him to guard, and later in the season, when the injury bug began to hit the offensive line, Sherrod did not have his name called onto the field very often, which is not a good sign for a first-round pick.
However, I'm willing to give him some more time to develop and prove that he was well worth the first round pick.
Ray Dominguez and Herb Taylor: Incomplete
Two backup linemen who never really saw the field in the regular season, Dominguez and Taylor will likely be practice squad players next year if they are lucky.
