Who is the greatest long snapper in NFL history?
Well to be a gaurd you should be quick you should run a 4.9 to a 5.4 in your 40 yd. dash becuz gaurds pull out a lot and you need to be able to catch those linebackers and strong safeties, you need to be strong, and you need to really work on your technique, you need to have a lot of stamina, strong legs, and a strong upper body, so do a lot of push ups and work on your bench. And if you have weaker ancles then you should buy higher cleats unless you tape your ancles in that case it doesnt really matter, I reccomend the Nike Speed TD's I use the myself and I love them. Well good luck and I hope you get that starting spot.
Im Looking for a pair of shoes that arent made anymore. Nike Jumpman Superfreaks. Where can i find them?
You are big, so your bench will come in time. Also work on parallel squat, that is most important. Usually, guards are smaller and quicker, I think you would make a better tackle.
Anyone else win tickets to the NFL Draft via the NFL Network? I have yet to receive my tickets. Anyone else?
WELL FOR THE CLEATS GET HIGH BETTER FOR UR ANKLES YOU DON,T NEED TO BE ALL THAT FAST AND BENCHING 130 IS GOOD DEPENDING ON HOW OLD U ARE
AND R52L YOU DONT NEED TO BE A SMALLER GUY MY HS TEEM FOUND OUT FAST BIGGER GUYS LIKE 275 280 WORK REALLY GOOD AT THE G SPOT. ALSO YOU DO NEED TO BE FAST AT THE T BECAUSE YOUR GOING UP WITH THE FASTER DE BUT WHEN UR PLAYING G YOU ALMOST HAVE A WALL NEXT TO YOU SO U COULD BE A LITTLE BIT ON THE SLOW SIDE AND STILL BE A GREAT G
What would you do if you where at the grocey store and you saw Ryan Leaf?
your at a good weight for a offensive guard. Your bench will come you can on working at it. It's all about the leg drive. For cleats you should buy high because your a lineman not a runningback or receiver, they wear low and mid. lineman need balance when they run and I wear high cleats. You need to be fast as a offensive guard to beat the d-line and you need to be fast on trap and running plays. You need to be smart while playing because one wrong move can cost the game. You don't need to worry how fast you run a lap it matter how fast you run in practice and on the football field. One more thing, You have to get aggersive while playing football you got to get angry and give it all you got on the field.
