Offensive Line Notes

One thing I find a little troubling about our offensive line is that none of the top three candidates for the two starting tackle spots is over 300 lbs. I guess it is more of a image thing than anything else. The Denver Broncos don't really rely on huge offensive linemen. The zone blocking scheme doesn't require an offensive lineman to move his man, just that the line has to work as a unit to create a hole for the back. Here is a pretty decent breakdown of zone blocking compared to man blocking.
Oh well, I wouldn't feel any better with these guys up front....

Not the prototypical five for zone blocking
