RSP Film Room No.43: Ohio State DT Michael Bennett

Michael Bennett

John Owning and I examine Michael Bennett’s game and why he may not be Aaron Donald or Geno Atkins, but he’s still capable of being a disruptive pro.  

Session Notes:

  • Examples of the arm-over/swim technique.
  • The importance of pad level and pad orientation for a tackle.
  • Why Bennett struggles with double teams.
  • How line stunts manufacture pressure.
  • Why Bennett does a good job helping his teammates generate pressure.
  • Two types of hand usage with line play: hand-fighting and disengaging (and the one Bennett needs to address).
