The Most Influential Man you never Heard Of

Offensive line man is a discreet taxonomic category, and possibly an endangered species. But don't stop reading yet. You have to realize that in the National Football League, NFL, Left Offensive Tackle is the most important, and probably highest in IQ, player on any team. This has been thought about and researched by many aspiring football aficionados, many who are reticent on how to pick players for teams. It's all pretty straight forward. Position of Offensive Line Man is based on a player's physical size.

ALABAMA GAMEDAY: Evolution of offensive lineman... article by Tom Deas, Executive Sports Editor, Tuscaloosa News, wrote:
"... The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, in a 2004 study, determined that in a 40-year period starting in the 1960s the average size of men and women in the U.S. increased by approximately 1 inch and 24 pounds."

"...Nobel Prize winner Robert Fogel and his colleagues spent some three decades researching body size and determined that the average height of native-born American men rose four inches between 1890 and 1980. ...[Offensive line coach, Joe Pendry said] "...If we had anybody that was 240 when I was playing (in the late 1960s), that was big. Back in those days, a 250-pounder was really big. It's changed quite a bit. (Deas, Tom. Oct 17, 2013.) ..."

The top five offensive tackles drafted this year, 2014, are:
1. Greg Robinson, 6-5, 332 lbs, Auburn
2. Jake Matthews, 6-5, 308 lbs, Texas AandM
3. Taylor Lewan, 6-7, 309 lbs, Michigan 
4. Zack Martin, 6-4, 308 lbs, Notre Dame
5. Cyrus Kouandjio, 6-6, 322, Alabama (Chris Fedor. May 05, 2014. LINK)

Science is needed here. How can a 6 and a half foot, 300-plus pound man run a forty yard dash in 4.5 seconds? Then repeat it, say, 60 seconds later? And keep repeating that for an hour?

The NFL uses large linemen to protect quarterbacks from large defensive linemen rushing into the offensive backfield. "...The size of offensive linemen began to change when the rules changed. In the 1970s, college football rules were altered to allow linemen to use their hands – what Alabama's late, legendary coach, Paul. W. "Bear" Bryant called "legalized holding." Previously, offensive linemen had to keep their hands in toward the middle of their jerseys, with their elbows extended, when blocking. (ibid. Tommy Deas. The Tuscaloosa News. October 17, 2013)..."

Someday there will be pauses in the football games occurring while larger-than-life linemen exchange liability insurance information for the collisions they cause on the playing field.
