I never played either position, I'm just asking. Like I've seen Clay Mathews get up into a RT, then explode his arms out to knock the guy off balance, then shoot inside, outside, or whatever to get to t he QB
Watch him play.
Clay matthews is a different type of player...He has more short area explosiveness...
Jordan uses his arm length to quickly disengage from blocker.
There's tons of film on Youtube....Not just highlights...Game film trimmed down...
