The final piece of my team's puzzle is more monster than man.
With my final pick in this fictional flag football game, I had two goals.
- Find a way to keep Melvin Ingram from getting to the Quarterback.
- Create another mismatch.
Most NFL teams will tell you that it's most-skilled pass protector is their starting Left Tackle. While Nick Hardwick may be more important to the Chargers' offensive line because he's the one identifying blitzers, that's a skill that won't be of much use in a flag football game. Jared Gaither is the best possible option for stopping, or at least slowing down, the Bolts' rookie pass-rusher.
