2013 NFL Free Agents: Elite Offensive Linemen Teams Must Sign

We are less than two weeks away from the start of NFL free agency.

On March 12, players who haven't re-signed with their former clubs will be on the open market for the entire league to bid on.

While names like Joe Flacco, Greg Jennings, Mike Wallace and Steven Jackson may be the most star-studded and attractive option, the ones we are focusing on here are the offensive linemen.

To me, the offensive line is one of, if not the, most important positions in all of football. Without a good one, your offense will go nowhere and your quarterback will flounder.

Good offensive linemen are getting top-dollar these days and, on Wednesday, the New York Giants took the first step in taking a top lineman off the market.

The Giants re-signed starting left tackle Will Beatty to a five-year, $38.75 million deal, with $19 million of the deal guaranteed.

Expect this kind of market for the top linemen and expect players to use Beatty's signing as a measuring stick (and possibly leverage) in what to look for in a deal.

Which linemen should teams look to sign this spring?
