    i pay a little more attention to broaddus. former players and coaches. rather then kiper. Tebow won games but there were question son him being a nfl qb because hes basically a glorified RB. And was that in college too. So comparing Warmacks status to Tebows popularity is like apples to oranges too.

    There is a reason that NFL teams are using more and more Zone Blocking. It is really difficult for any NFL OLineman to consistently drive Defensive Linemen straight backwards.

    When the Cowboys were winning Super Bowls in the early nineties, their OL averaged about 320 lbs; however, many of the NFL DTs were like the Cowboys starting DT Tony Casillas who was 6-3, 278. In the modern NFL, DLinemen have gotten bigger but many teams starting OL still don't average over 320.

    In re-watching the Cowboys 2012 season on the All-22 and focusing on the OL, I observed many plays that failed due to the blockers getting "out-quicked". I didn't count the plays, but I believe that many more plays failed for this reason as compared to plays that failed due to straight up being over powered. The exception was probably Doug Free. He was overpowered often.

    Broaddus hyped David Arkin when the Cowboys drafted him.

    Just for reference:

    David Decastro

    40 Yrd Dash: 5.43
    10 Yrd Dash: 1.79
    20 Yrd Shuttle: 4.56

    And remember, DeCastro was considered to be one of the more athletic guards to come out in some time. He is a the definition of a zone guard as he is best at pulling and trapping. He really struggles with power and one-on-one blocking against DTs.

    Combine stats don't mean much to me for Guards. DeCastro is quicker, Warmack stronger at the POA.

    There was not a lineman, including Tyron, that didn't get pushed back on a regular basis. Using man blocking linemen in a zone scheme is a stupid move. Of course the linemen were getting out quicked. The scheme doesn't fit their talents.

    My two points ran together.:D

    One point is that more than Free got pushed around.

    The other point is that the linemen doesn't fit the scheme.

    So Broaddus is the only scout/ex scout to ever get a evaluation wrong?

    Of Warmack and Cooper:


    BOOM! Goes the dynamite.

    It's okay, there were several others that followed your lead (but none of them bet their life savings)
