These blocking pads are essential football equipment to teach game-speed techniques for a defensive tackle (DT) or nose tackle (NT) (depending on whether you set a 4-3, 3-4, 5-2, or 3-3-5). Whatever your defense requires, coaches can prepare for it in real time – gap control, pass rush, stuffing a run. Youth and adult coaches can safely and repetitively teach how to develop the power, leverage, quickness and muscle memory to control the gap and win their individual matchup. Engage and release from MOVING offensive lineman, just like the game. Control the pad level of your defensive lineman. Play better, more fundamentally sound football with The Colt blocking pad.
