I spoke to a former USC offensive lineman today, who was less-than-enthused with techniques used by the Trojans’ offensive line.
“I’m really concerned about the pad level of our offensive line,” he said.
It’s a simple, basic aspect of offensive linemen to keep your pads low. He also mentioned poor footwork on double teams and often falling to the ground.
“There are too many missed assignments in turn-back pass protection,” he said.
These are simple things that should have been taught (or learned) a long time ago, especially by a veteran offensive line.
