It DOES seem odd that we are all walking around feeling great about the depth and athleticism of a line with only 1 returning starter. But go back to last season’s tape and see just how many times Haskins had to pick the ball off the ground from the snap. And how many times in short yardage that Dobbins and Weber were hit in the back field. I mean three or four yards deep in the backfield. It was like we had five tackles with all the length desired for an NFL line, but very little ability to drive block on a run play.
I think the athleticism that we are all anticipating will translate to a much more balanced attack and a threat in the run game as well as pass protection.
