Run Blocking Technique

Here are two of the Cardinals failed running plays versus DT Derrick Brown and the Panthers that can give us a sense of why the Cardinals’ line blocking technique needs improvement.

First of all, let’s be clear that DT Derrick Brown (6-5, 325) was the 2019 SEC Defensive Player of the Year and the #7 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft for good reasons. He is a load to handle for any guard or center, one on one.

But—-just as having a magnetic personality can more than compensate for someone’s average looks, proper blocking technique can often compensate for an offensive lineman’s average size and strength.
