3/2011 Scouting Reports: Justin Tuck and Matt Light

March 24th 2011 16:01
Justin Tuck DE New York Giants

Tuck has the full package as far as pass rushers go. Tuck is incredibly strong and is also explosive. He is mainly a player that bullies offensive lineman all day, instead of guys like Dwight Freeney that use an arsenal of spin moves to get around their blockers. Tuck dictates the point of attack extremely well, and his teammates really do feed off of him.

Justin Tuck is such a monster, and it is very difficult for coaches to make a gameplan against him. He is a handful for offensive linemen, and a fearsome player that quarterbacks just don't want to face. Tuck's ability to draw double teams frees up room for his teammates that are also more than competent pass rushers. He is a player that is able to force the fumble. Justin Tuck is a leader on his team, and he handles the media well with his good interviews. He is one of the best players in the game, and he certainly showed it after last year's incredible showing.

LT Matt Light New England Patriots

Gone are the days when Light was a feared foe to every pass rusher in the NFL. Age has gotten to his once dominating pass protection, and he is far too slow to keep up with the edge rushers in this league that get faster each progressing season. Still, Light is a proven leader that is a solid player even though the years are taking a toll on him. The Patriots should try to help him out by swapping him with Sebastian Vollmer, thus making Vollmer the blindside guy. This would ease some pressure off of the veteran.

Although Light has lost his speed, he is still a solid player in this league that really brings a lot of intangibles to the table with this invaluable leadership and experience. He's still a guy the Pats need to re-sign, especially with Stephen Neal gone and Logan Mankins's future with the team up in the air. There were times, such as week 16's dominant run blocking performance, where Light showed you games of the old. Then, there were the ugly games like week 13 where Light got blown in pass protection. However, if Light hits the free agent market, he will be one of the premier tackles. A team will definitely give him an offer. I am confident though- granted there is a free agency- that Matt Light will be re-signed.

Tuck is a great player and has the abilty to get over 10 sacks every season. I like Matt Light and his ability to always be mentioned amongst the best lineman in the game.
