Mark Schlereth talks 49ers offensive line

With the 2024 NFL Draft in the near future, it seems the prevailing thought around the league is that the 49ers will need to address the offensive line. While the Niners do boast one of the league's elite players in LT Trent Williams, the rest of the unit has struggled in spots. In fact, San Francisco's right tackle and both guard positions allowed a pressure percentage of over 20% in 2023.

Former Pro Bowl offensive lineman and current NFL analyst Mark Schlereth joined the No Huddle podcast to discuss the current state of the o-line. He noted that when you force San Francisco out of its comfort zone, the weaknesses upfront tend to show up.

"When they're down, that's where they struggle and that's where their offensive line is not a dominant force. When you have to just sit up and pass protect, then they can be exposed and then they get in trouble."

Schlereth also talked about analytics in today's NFL, Shanahan's decision making and Brandon Aiyuk. You can watch the interview in it's entirety here:
