Lions ~ 6045/306
Core Strength ~ to thwart the onslaught of marauding Defensive Ends in the Passing Game
Drive Power ~ to attack same Defensive Ends and drive them back ~ or aside ~ in the Running Game
Launch Velocity ~ out'f'is Stance, off the Snap
Fluidity ~ to Redirect Quickly & Effectively
Lateral Agility ~ to Stay Square as he Mirrors his man
Range ~ Short Speed ~ to drive across the Flank on Pulls & Traps or UpField to the Second Level
Combat ~ As in Hand to Hand: Dexterity, Technique, Ferocity & Stamina!!
Core Strength, Core Power, Fluidity, and ~ perhaps most of all ~ Lateral Agility are what I focus most on when evaluating Offensive Tackles.
Pass Blocking ~ Ditto. Armstead is a phenomenal natural Athlete, and he's learning fast.
His Athleticism is flat out historic.
Raw, yes, and one presumes nothing of Life and Draft Picks.
But he is nothing less than a multiple All Pro Talent.
