The Tape: John Carlson's First Quarter

Before the draft, I gushed about John Carlson's route running. That's the skill that's making him a contributor. I hope the hands and run blocking will develop.

This represent the plays Carlson was on the field and is not contiguous.

  1. Carlson slants into a "short" or "stick" into the flat, receives for an easy 3.
  2. Perfectly executed hook route, draws double coverage, Matt Hasselbeck targets Bobby Engram for 18 and the first.
  3. Missed block (Run).
  4. Picks up blitzing Adrian Wilson
  5. Teams with Walter Jones to block Travis Laboy
