it donesnt really matter linemen vary due to the team's style. Must high School Linemen range from 215-300 lbs varying on the team's system. It really all depends on why you are asking the question.

The popular term "West Coast Offense" is more of a philosophy and an approach to the game than it is a set of plays or formations. Traditional offensive thinking argues that a team must establish its running game first, which will draw the defense in and open up vertical passing lanes downfield ( i.…e. , passing lanes that run perpendicular to the line of scrimmage).. Bill Walsh's West Coast Offense, however, differs from traditional offense by instead emphasizing a short, horizontal passing attack to help stretch the defense out, thus opening up running lanes. The West Coast Offense as implemented under Walsh features precisely run pass patterns by the receivers that make up about 65% to 80% of the offensive scheme. With the defense stretched out, the offense is then free to focus the remaining plays on longer throws (more than 14 yards) and mid to long yard rushes. ( Full Answer )

Well, the question you asked can be a very opinionated in many peoples eyes. Also, it could vary by position. In my opinion, here it is; Joe Thomas - Cleveland Browns - Left Tackle There is so much to say about this young lineman its hard to pick out his flaws. Long arms, big hands, quick feet, and… a bulldozer mentality. Best of all, he is one of the most proficient pass-blockers in the league if not the most proficient. His Rookie season, playing against great pass rushing teams multiple times such as the Ravens and Jets, allowed only 1 sack. Ryan Clady - Denver Broncos - Left Tackle Very similar to Joe Thomas, but more of a bruiser. Ryan Clady can bring the hammer when he run blocks, and has no problem rolling over 'Backers and smaller lineman. Steve Hutchinson - Minnesota Vikings - Left Guard Not a whole lot to say about this guy, other than that he is a monster in the trenches. Knows what to do, can actually pull (very uncommon thing in the NFL) and hit people, rarely does anything wrong. Chris Snee - New York Giants - Right Guard Very comparable to Hutchinson, overall a very fundamentally solid lineman. Can do it all and makes few mistakes. Jeff Saturday / Sean O'Hara - Indianapolis Colts / New York Giants These guys are practically the same person. They are great movers as well as protectors, but most importantly they own the line they work with by calling out blitzes, noticing defensive packages, etc. etc. Great leaders for the team. Again; This list could definitley vary from person to person. There are lineman not on this list that are excellent, I just thought of the few that came to mind. ( Full Answer )
Quarterback, Halfback or Running back, Fullback, 2 or 3 Wide Receivers, 1 or 2 Tight Ends, Center, 2 Guards, and 2 Tackles. (depending on formation sometimes the fullback or halfback will become a receiver, but that is a typical formation)
actually a offensive tackle are not really supposed to run the football not unless they recover a fumble
While it is hard to say one has an advantage over the other because of all the variables, offense should have the advantage for a few reasons. 1) The offense knows the snap count. When playing defense you are constantly trying to guess when the center will snap the ball. So in theory the offensive s…hould be faster of the ball which allows the offensive line to engage the defense first giving them the upper hand. 2) Arguably the hardest position to play in footabll is CB. As a defensive back you have the challenge of guarding a guy that is usually just as physically gifted as you but taller. You also have the challenge of not knowing what route he is going to run. Its another guessing game that is very difficult. And the final reason it odds. If you take in to consideration the odds of guessing everything right, on every play, against all 11 Offense players, the odds are you are going to fail more than you succeed. Hope this helps.

They're identifying the middle linebacker (AKA the Mike linebackeror MLB). Most offensive lines use a numbering scheme that beginswith the MLB. Since the MLB will align differently against variousoffensive formations, the offensive linemen seek to point him out,so they know where the numbering syste…m begins and what everyoneelse's numbers are. It also helps the running backs identify theblitz easier, since, in certain protection schemes, the runningback will be responsible for picking up the MLB coming up themiddle on what's called an A-gap blitz.

Yes! My nephew broke his hand when it got smashed between 2 helmets and lost most of the season. Subsequently, when my son started playing, we invested in a good pair of gloves. As a lineman, his hands are either up to pass block or trying to rip through as a defensive end. With all the padding in h…is gloves, he has banged his hands on helmets, pads, facemaaks....and is fine. If you play center, though, you may not want to wear a glove on the hand you grip the ball with. If the gloves are bulky , it can be hard to feel the laces and have a good exchange. ( Full Answer )
A block below the waist is called a "cut block," and the rules regarding this can vary among different youth leagues, so it would be best to consult a rulebook or a league official. At the high school level, cut blocking is allowed within the "free-blocking zone," defined as a rectangular area exte…nding 4 yards laterally from the ball and 3 yards to either side of the line of scrimmage. Once the ball carrier has left the zone, the zone no longer exists. A chop block, however, is never legal. This is when a player gets cut while already engaged by someone who is blocking high (above the knee). ( Full Answer )

Offensive lineman should not be required to wear visors because many of them have a very large cage. Justin Tuck uses a helmet (I think it's an ION 4D or DNA) that has more bars than I've seen on any other helmet.

While it cannot be said with 100% certainty that this was the firstoffensive formation, but the single wing formation is one of theearliest known offensive formations in football. It was originally developed by Glenn "Pop" Warner back in the early1900's. It is the precursor of the modern day Spread… Optionoffense. It was used as early as 1907, 13 years before the NFL wasfounded. The formation featured an strong side offensive line with fourbacks in the backfield. In football the traditional offensive linehas a Tackle/Guard/Center/Guard/Tackle formation. In the SingleWing the line has a different set up. The line formation typicallygoes End/Guard/Center/Guard/Tackle/Tackle/End. In the backfield, you have 4 backs, the quarter back, who lines upbehind the interior tackle on the strong side of the line, the fullback, who lines up between the center/guard on the strong side onestep behind the QB, the tailback, who lines up behind thecenter/guard on the weak side one step behind tailback, The splitwing is positioned one step behind the line, just outside of theend on the strong side of the line.
