The Tape: Deon Butler and Blocking

It goes without saying that Deon Butler blocks. Does he block well? And will it translate?

  1. Butler is subbed out.
  2. Penn: 2 WR (left), TE (left), I backs. Butler is in the slot. Gets under the pads and harasses Will Harris.
  3. Decoys deep. Does not factor.
  4. Penn: 2 WR (left), TE (left), I backs. Butler is in the slot. Gets under the pads and harasses Will Harris.

Butler looks like a hard working blocker that does his best to engage and stop opposing defensive backs, and he looks like a pesky blocker. He doesn't drive back defenders, and despite his weight-room strength, he's not powerful, but he does latch on and he doesn't get tossed aside of rag dolled. So he's pesky, which isn't too complimentary but is better than lazy, weak, unwilling or unaware. Butler looks like a hat-on-a-man blocker that'll quietly contribute, not be appreciated and sometimes get beat down and thrown around. Fans will see that. Fans will bemoan Seattle's Micro Machine receiving corps then.
