out plenty of helmet hits as he rushed for more than 14 Customized Washington Redskins Jerseys ,000 yards in his Hall of Fame career.He just wishes he didn't have to endure that.The retired running back sees the NFL's enhanced rule penalizing players for leading with their helmets as a positive step for the sport. As a member of the player safety advisory panel, he's part of a leaguewide effort to educate the current generation on how to stay on the right side of the rule and reduce injuries."Hopefully we can extend careers and just have less contact to the head, which I just think is beneficial over a long period of time," Martin said by phone this week. "We're really focusing on getting the head (contact) out of the game. I wish it was like that when I was playing. I think it's something that's very positive, and I think it's important as we go forward and the future of the game."Martin and former linebackers Willie Lanier , also a Hall of Famer, and Willie McGinest taped minute-long "NFL Way to Play" instructional videos for players stressing stance, posture and technique. For specific examples of head-contact hits that are now 15-yard penalties or possibly ejections, there are situation-specific videos narrated by coaches Anthony Lynn of the Chargers (ball carriers ), Doug Marrone of the Jaguars (offensive linemen ) , Dan Quinn of the Falcons (defensive linemen ), Mike Vrabel of the Titans (linebackers ), and Todd Bowles of the Jets (defensive backs )."I just had some things I wanted to try to share being a former player and having played that technique and coached that technique," Vrabel said. "It's what's best for the game, the fundamentals. We always try to teach the fundamentals that are good: playing with your knees bent, leading with your hands and playing with your face up."After watching those videos, Redskins coach Jay Gruden said making sure players don't use their helmets as weapons is "a big thing we're trying to get over." That's the NFL's emphasis: a helmet is for protection and not to be used as a projectile."You don't necessarily want to hurt anyone," Martin said. "As an offensive player, a lot of times, especially when you see those times when a player or whoever's carrying the ball they're very close to the sidelines Washington Redskins T-Shirt , but before they go out, they decide they just want to punish that (defensive back). That's where you see the helmet used as a weapon, and you want to cut things like that out of the game because it's unnecessary, No. 1, and it just protects the players better."Bowles, who played defensive back for eight NFL seasons, illustrated in his video many of the shoulder-to-shoulder hits that are legal and expected. He contrasted them with some players who made helmet-to-helmet contact. Because the enhanced rule now makes helmet-to-anywhere contact a penalty, he knows it's on coaches to give players a refresher on the proper way to tackle."It's really teaching football to be played the right way," Bowles said. "There are going to be hard collisions, but if the helmet's up Washington Redskins Hats , and you have to keep the helmet out of the way and hit with the shoulder, which most of the teams do all the time. There's an occasional head-to-head when someone's putting their head down, but we don't teach it any differently."Martin fully understands the football mentality of pushing for the extra yard and going for the big hit, so he figures it'll take time for players to adjust. It's his hope the culture change toward understanding head injuries helps players accept the updated rule for their own good."As former players, we can sit back and see how this rule would've been very effective for us when we were playing," Martin said. "But when you're in the midst of something, it's like anything — when you're in the midst of a problem, it's hard to see the benefits of (fixing) that problem or the outcome or the potential positive things that can come out of that problem. Now that we're on the other side, we can see that maybe a little clearer than current players can and as we're able to inform them and teach, I think that they'll come around."AP Pro Football Writers Teresa M. Walker and Dennis Waszak Jr. contributed. D’Andre Walker Washington Redskins Hoodie , OLBSchool: Georgia | Conference: SECCollege Experience: Senior | Age: 21Height / Weight: 6-3 / 245 lbsProjected Draft Status: 2nd or 3rd RoundNFL Comparison: Uchenna Nwosu College StatisticsPlayer OverviewD’Andre Walker was a 4-star prospect that was heavily recruited inside and out of his home state of Georgia. Walker decided to stay with the local big time program and committed to Georgia in 2015. He has put together 2 solid years of production and his head coach Kirby Smart heavily praised him for being a hard worker and considered him one of the team’s most important players. Georgia’s pass rush was not near the level it should have been this year after the losses of Roquan Smith and Lorenzo Carter to the NFL last year. Walker did his best to answer the call in that area and accounted for nearly a 3rd of the teams total sack production with 7.5 sacks on the year. Walker was asked to do a variety of things at Georgia as an outside linebacker. He played from a 2, 3, and 4 point stance on both the weak and strong sides. He dropped back into coverage and played a little inside linebacker in certain packages as well. Walker is an interesting OLB prospect because he falls into that second tier of OLB/EDGE prospects that will come off the board at the position in large part due to not being an elite athlete and being dubbed a ‘tweener’. Walker is a fine athlete and if a player of his talent is going to potentially drop to the 3rd round it should give you an idea of just how deep this class is at the position. StrengthsHigh effort / high motor player with good athleticism. Has natural feeling on how to use his speed, power, and length to get into the backfield. He can make quick work of a defender if everything goes right. Especially effective working off stunts where he can used his speed to cut inside and create interior pressure. Can convert his speed to power well. If Walker can consistently place his punch under the OL’s pads and keep his legs moving he wins the leverage and momentum battle and can overwhelm them quickly.Has experience dropping back into coverage but will have to prove he can do it consistently look for him at the Senior Bowl. He is also scheme versatile as an outside linebacker and should be able to play in 3-4 alignment as well as 4-3WeaknessesWalker isn’t overtly flexible, strong, or fast so you won’t see him beat a lot of tackles outright with his speed until he works on his get off and technique more. Speaking of technique I think Walker has all the tools but like most prospects he doesn’t yet know when and how to use them all. He needs to improve his consistency. Most obvious he needs to get better at shedding blocks and developing counter moves so he doesn’t get stalled on his pass rush. This means improving his hands at the point of attack, playing at a consistent rush speed, and learning how to keep leverage and use it against his opponent. Walkers instincts and read and react ability strike me as just ok. In other words if he were more instinctive I think he would be involved in a lot more plays. This is especially true against the run where he isn’t really much of a factor. Size is decent but he is dubbed as the dreaded ‘tweener’.Let’s see his work:More D’Andre Walker videosHow He Would Fit On The RedskinsAfter drafting 6-4+ and 260+ pound defensive ends that they convert to linebackers in a 3-4 for the past few years the Redskins may be finally breaking out of that mold. They drafted Ryan Anderson in 2017 who is around 6-2 and 250 lbs. Anderson was not known for his athleticism but he is a true outside linebacker who should be more in the mix next season if Preston Smith is not brought back. How does Walker fit in? Walker offers the Redskins speed which they have been sorely lacking at the position. Walker is a similar size to Anderson and has the length to fit what the Redskins like. I do think they are looking to get faster at the position rather than only relying on technique and power as they have done in the past. Walker gives them that. The immediate issue is that Walker will have to improve his technique to get past the tackles in the NFL. The secondary ‘issue’ is that Walker is a pass rusher not a run defender. Don’t get be wrong all outside linebackers have to play the run and drop back into coverage at some point but the defensive philosophy of the Redskins seems to not make complete used of the pass rushing ability of its outside linebackers in the first place. If a change in this ideology is made I think Walker would be a better fit for the team at OLB where he can use his strengths despite his need to be stronger in other areas.
