What am I missing?
Being smaller and an athletic on the DL has it's advantages. It's not easy to pancake these guys because they are not top heavy and have good balance and agility and they can twist and turn and they keep their legs moving. And believe it or not, OL get tired too trying to stay in front of these quick dudes especially when they are so big and not as fast.
