Just wondering what Tackles project well in the NFL for a zone blocking scheme? What do you guys think?

Jake Long has played in a ZBS the past two years at Michigan. I think he'd be a good fit there at the pro level as well.

Ryan Clady is good fit for ZBS scheme. The thing about the zone blocking is that they dont need top offensive lineman so most ZBS teams dont pick O-line before 3rd.

How would Sam Baker fit in that zone blocking scheme?

Zone blocking doesn't really require an athletic offensive lineman, as long as they know who to block and how to get there..although being quick helps, its not really a necessity.

Sam Baker and Ryan Clady are ideal ZBS OTs.

ya, being an offensive lineman I know for certain that almost every team in college and the NFL runs some form of zone blocking. some teams are exclusively ZBS, some teams are a mixture of zone blocking and power schemes, and some teams(rare nowadays) are straight power oriented. i think too much is made out of the ZBS but thats neither here nor there.

King Dunlap in zone? What?

Pedro Sosa already plays in a zone scheme. He's really athletic.

Clady is a dream pick for Denver or Houston or any other zbs team.

Now that the Panther's are using a zbs, he would be a good fit there.
