    I'm glad to have him on the team, but I'm not really that excited. He's pretty undersized for a guard, listed at 6'2" 290lbs. I think that directly relates to his struggles in run blocking, and why the Colts ultimately released him. I'd love to see him prove me wrong, but I have my doubts.

    Zone blocking requires smaller, quicker linemen than power blocking. All those years the Broncos had 1000 yard rushers with random backs under Shanahan they ran a zone blocking scheme with 290 lb lineman across the board. If Lilja were 6'5" 340 lbs, I doubt we would have been interested. I'm excited for zone blocking.

    I'm still high on drafting Okung if he's still around. Waters is getting the point of retiring soon and when he does my thought is slide Albert over and put Okung in at LT. This will give him a year to learn/compete with Albert and if Albert loses out then we've got a back up. Not only that but it gives us depth if Weigman or Waters would go down.

    Point taken. I knew we were running a zone blocking scheme towards the end of last year, but had no idea if it would continue next year, let alone what it even is.

    I'm still confused as to how this can be effective when he's going head to head with a 350 lb. NT, but I'll trust you for now.
