YOOOAdrian’s 2010 NFL Preview- OG Rankings

  • The mammoth, nasty, behemoths of the NFL, otherwise known as the guards.  Here are the traits of a succesful guard in the NFL.
  • Strength- On the opposite side of the line of scrimmage is a defensive tackle the same size as you.  In the running game, strength is necessary to push the tackle back and off the ball.  In the passing game, they must absorb the contact and hold their ground.
  • Quickness- Quick feet and agility to get through the hole.  Quickness is a factor in changing direction, angle-blocking and short-set pass protection.  Quickness is also important for pulling and trapping and getting to the 2nd level to block linebackers.
  • Hands- In the trenches, hand use is key to get by the enormous defensive tackles who are trying to free up space for the linebackers.  Ability to punch, recoil and shock defenders.
