3.) O’Cyrus Torrence
The rookie right guard has been impressive through two weeks, with being able to hold his own ground and not allow much pressure up the middle. Even against the New York Jets in which Allen was sacked five times, Torrence, going up against players like Quinnen Williams was able to provide some sort of stability upfront. His only knock as of right now was a potential miscommunication on one Raiders' sack last week when a linebacker flew into the backfield unblocked and brought Allen down.
Torrence now has a tough task this week taking on not one but two great defensive linemen in Daron Payne and Jonathan Allen. Knowing that Payne and Allen are able to disrupt the middle of the trenches and force players to bounce to the outside to try and make a play.
In order for the run game to get established, Torrence will have to be able to open up a hole and take Payne or Allen with him. Not only that, but he will also have to take on a pass rush in which all four defensive linemen alone can take on one-on-one and create pressure. Look for the rookie to be tested right from the start and maybe even be a part of double teams on adjustments.
