A lot of Big 10 schools use zone blocking: Iowa, Penn Stae, and Wisconsin. Big 12 schools like Oklahoma, Iowa State, and Texas also use it, along with Oregon State.
This IS a good thing! I wouldn't mind getting Calhoun from Wisconsin either. Peterson from OKL is the real deal too, but won't be coming out for another year. I don't know as much about what schemes are being used in the college ranks, so I appreciate the expanded option that we could pull from for consideration.
#3 - RB Lorenzo Booker, Florida State
Undersized, but I think our front office and coaching staff are going to see him as a Warrick Dunn clone.
Does Booker already run in a zone blocking system? Not that that is a necessity, but I feel that the difference between him and Maroney is the major separation in production. Getting a RB, should he be available, who already is having a ton of success in this system is going to be a better option to me than a OT with the 1st pick.
I still like Blackmon over Minter as he could contribute in more areas and with greater effectiveness. I would say if Maroney isn't available at our 1st pick we should go with a good DE. Scott certainly sounds like the type we'd be looking for, but do you really think they will take an OL with a 1st round pick?
