Before we get to analyzing Drew Lock’s first career NFL start, I hope you’ll indulge me a little personal anecdote/ musingContinue reading Biomechanical Review: Teaching, Youth, and Drew Lock’s NFL Debut
Hi guys, last time I weighed in on the Drew Lock situation, I framed it as a response to Tyler Polumbus’s tweet. Which, in retrospect, was probably not the best way to present my opinion of the situation. So I hope you won’t mind if I therefore clarify my stance, and also share what I observed when I went back and studied Drew Lock’s preseason footage.Continue reading Informal Musings: Drew Lock Mid-Season 2019

With training camp now getting underway, let’s take one last look at the college film for a biomechanical review of the 2019 draft- starting with the anterior dominant draft picks
Modern humans near-universally live with permanently compromised fascial systems.

Mammalian development can be seen as a microcosm of tetrapod evolution. Mammals begin life as fertilized eggs- as do fish, amphibians, reptiles, and birds. At the earliest stages of fetal development, mammals appear like tadpoles (amphibians) with buds for limbs.
In order to understand what is meant by “biomechanical efficiency”, it is very helpful to have a basic understanding of the evolution of biomechanics- beginning with the common ancestor to all non-insect land animals- fish.

When evaluating tape and building biomechanical profiles, there generally comes a point when the profile “clicks”- when predicting the outcome of a play changes from a matter of mystery to a matter of mechanics. While I reached this point with Drew Lock several weeks ago, I never truly reached this point with Dwayne Haskins- when continuing to review his tape, I would still find myself surprised with the outcome of certain plays. Given that I had carefully mapped 5 out his 6 major areas (anterior cervical/ thoracic/ lumbar and posterior thoracic/ lumbar), it was therefore clear that I had to focus my attention on Haskins’ posterior cervical area if I were to reach a satisfying biomechanical catharsis.
