Helmets Off

Seven weeks until the NFL season. Last week we did offensive line, we are going to the other side of the ball: Defensive line. We are going to give you a warning here, Scott is not a fan of defensive lineman. They're mean, and they were always after him. So, what does it take to be a superior defensive lineman? Size is a big one. You MUST be big, especially if you are a nose tackle. Another trait? They have to be quick, not always fast, but quick off the line. Maybe the most important trait is having a constant motor. You always have to be going, it has to be relentless. Any great defensive player must have great balance. They are big guys, so balance is not an easy thing to have, but they manage to have impeccable grace. Listen in to the second segment to hear who made the list. Scott Mitchell was a record setting quarterback at the University of Utah. After being drafted into the NFL he played for the Miami Dolphins, Detroit Lions, Cincinnati Bengals and Baltimore Ravens.
