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 ~ Phenomenal. Tremendous Launch Velocity, remarkable Lateral Agility, outstanding Core Strength, and that fantastic Dexterity combine to make Joeckel a truly formidable Adversary.
Luke Joeckel is nothing less than my Vision of a Dream Offensive Tackle: I foresee'm racking up multiple Pro Bowls!!
