The Browns' offensive line looked impressive during the opening drive against the Denver Broncos on Saturday. And regardless of who will start at quarterback for Cleveland, he will have a chance to win games due to the revamped offensive line.

The line fired off the ball and played stout with low pad level and sound technique against Denver. The offensive line protected quarterback Charlie Frye as he orchestrated an 11-play touchdown drive to start the game.

Cleveland has a solid group of veterans mixed in with depth and ascending talent. Center Hank Fraley anchors the line with fellow veterans Seth McKinney and Eric Steinbach. Plus, rookie Joe Thomas is improving every day at left tackle.
