Zebrie Sanders

45
...finished second on the team with 37 knockdown blocks, including a career-high of five against Boston College... Zebrie really turned in a great performance in 2010. Credit Trickett for Sanders' continued development. I used to definitely be on the disappointed bandwagon re: his play. But I've had to consider that he had to play - start, even - his first two years in college because of the trainwreck in offensive line play and recruiting under previous ownership. The ideal situation for offensive linemen is the same today as it was 20 years ago at the college level - redshirt your first year, practice for 2 years, don't see the field until your RS Jr. year. Said another way, Sanders shouldn't have even seen the field until this upcoming season. Trickett had to scrap the idealized approach, and the result was at times hard to watch in '08 and '09. But he has improved each year, and Sanders really came into his own last year. Sanders has to be considered one of the top tackles in the conference going into 2011. He has the frame, size, agility, and growing technique to contribute at the next level. He's not the road-grading RT the NFL looks for, and he may turn into a LT a few years from now. A zone-blocking / pass-happy offense might like him at RT.

Corey Clark: Martin's Evolving Offensive Approach

16

This was premium on the Democrat, but the PNJ ran it free. Corey did a really good job here talking to Mike Martin about his evolution as a manager, particularly his offensive philosophy. Is he perfect in in his restraint? No, but Martin definitely bunts a lot less than he used to do and we should praise him for that since we've ripped him for it in the past. Now if he'd just do something about that pitching "coach"...

Freshman offensive tackle Jordan Prestwood is leaving FSU

Freshman offensive tackle Jordan Prestwood is leaving FSU

There had been mixed signals about this. His friend Aaron Lynch spurned FSU for Notre Dame, Prestwood missed a ton of classes while being lonely/immture/homesick and may have been ineligible for Fall. He wasn't going to get PT this season after failing to put up 10 bench reps at the start of S&C (guaranteed to redshirt), though he is still a good prospect. In the end, this was a kid who was not ready to leave home and was not mentally ready to enroll in college. The girlfriend was at home, his friends were at home, and his mind was not in Tallahassee Let's be classy and wish him the best of luck. A young kid who didn't find the right on his first try will now try again. FSU has really had some bad luck with backup offensive tackles in the last few years-- bad luck that had nothing to do with a player not turning into a good player. But FSU taking nine offensive linemen in the last cycle now makes even more sense. On another note, after getting Aaron Lynch into school and perhaps taking Prestwood with all of his spring grades, Notre Dame needs to be considered a serious football school again.
