When we talk about the best LTs in the NFL, Jason Peters has to be among them. He was a TE in college, but has established himself as a special player in the NFL. He has great feet and is a natural athlete. He’s gifted in pass protection, but has a nasty, physical side that makes him a good run blocker as well.
Watch these 2 video clips and you’ll see one of the things that makes Peters special. He can get out in space and mash on guys. The old joke with pulling OL is “Elephants on parade”. That’s not the case with Peters. He truly is a dancing bear. Just ask the Safeties from the Atlanta Falcons. Each one was the blocking victim in these clips.
