Default WR screen blocking

Why do our WR consistently suck at blocking the WR screen plays? The only time those plays work is if the WR makes and unbelievable move and gets past tackler or if the D whiffs on the tackle. Everyone appears to have grasped this skill better than Clemson. We either need to learn to block or quit running those plays.

This has gotten abysmal with the current roster of receivers. In my view that was something Jeff Scott put a big emphasis on. Grisham has got to up the quality of the technicals of his receivers. They are asked to do way more than become great at leaping up for 50/50 balls.

We expect everyone to be a beast at it,like C Peake, because HE WAS ! All WR's should HAVE TO watch his film weekly

More blocking like Peake would be amazing but that would be a high mark to reach. Right now Iíll take just getting in front and staying on a DB without getting a holding penalty.

Those old DW4 blocks. Just get in the way and slow the guy down long enough for the runner to progress
