Offensive tackles are a prized position in any offense. In particular, the blindside protector needs to be an excellent athlete with outstanding footwork, hand skills, length, and hand size. Proper technique is paramount. The right offensive tackle (assuming right handed quarterback) has responsibilities that tend to be more about moving forward and clearing the way for runs. Moreover, defenses generally set their best pass rushers against the blindside protector. However, defenses will move guys around, and both tackles need to have good technique and pass protection skills.
