Cleveland Browns left tackle Joe Thomas leads the league in pass blocking efficiency.

Cleveland Browns left tackle Joe Thomas leads the league in pass blocking efficiency, a stat from Pro Football Focus used to determine the best pass blockers in the NFL. The stat takes into account sacks given up as well as pressures and hits allowed compared to how often the lineman is in pass protection.

Thomas leads all offensive linemen with a 97.8 pass blocking efficiency. Thomas has allowed two sacks, two hits, and eight hurries over 426 pass block snaps. Ryan Clady of the Denver Broncos ranks second at 97.5 and D'Brickashaw Ferguson of the New York Jets comes in at No. 3 with a 97.3. Ferguson is the only tackle to have not allowed a sack this season.

The Browns selected Thomas with the third pick of the 2007 NFL Draft. He has made the Pro Bowl in each of his five NFL seasons and has been a Associated Press first-team All-Pro in each of the last three seasons.
