Nice article. I really think Rodgers was being underrated as a blocker by a lot of people. The block on the ILB was a thing of beauty. He doesn't have a ton of speed or insane athleticism but finds himself open or wide open in A. Rodgers eyes. Rodgers will never be a top TE but I do believe he can be a really good 3 down TE. That film was from 2013 where I believe he played at closer to 240(I could have that backwards), which means he should be much stronger/bigger and drastically improve his blocking ability since he is more comfortable at 270-275.
