    His PFF grades were pretty bad with the Chiefs.

    He's better than what we have. I remember him being decent with the Ravens.

    When your job is to be big, heavy, and hard to move why is it so complicated? I know there are techniques, but essentially offensive lineman are roadblocks.

    The Key here is that he has played some guard in his time.

    Maybe he is better than XSF.

    Offensive line is not an easy one to play.
    You have to stay engaged physically and mentally.
    You have to really maintain balance points and watch leverage.
    You also have to maintain posture while getting manhandled by bigger faster players.

    It is not easy whatsoever.

    Apparently not, there doesn't seem to be that many really good ones. One NFL OLineman (KC Chiefs) told me that he got his "bell rung" at every snap. He said he usually wasn't right by the next snap.

    I am sure run blocking is not fun in the NFL.

    Just head clashing with linebackers at full speed.

    If you are going to be in the NFL, be a receiver. You probably wont have too much CTE.

    I would be a punter. Marquette King is living his best life kicking with the bravado of ochocinco.

    That's a low bar. We're all better than XSF.

    If he he better than what we have, then BOB should be immediately fired. Same with Rick Smith.

    Average wonderlic test scores by position in the NFL:

    These "roadblocks" are usually the most intelligent group of players because their jobs are complex.
