The New England Patriots heavily feature pick plays and their receivers are asked to block a lot in general.
“Technique is important, willingness is important," said Bill Belichick. "Again, there are a lot of things that go into blocking. No. 1 is doing the right thing, knowing who you have to block, a lot of times blocking secondary players, you have to make secondary players, you have to make decisions as to which player to block. We always want to block the most dangerous guy, the guy that can get there first, I would say most of the time, not all the time, but most of the time.
“Like on (Rob) Gronkowski's touchdown pass, block from the receiver helped spring him, vice versa. Rob's blocked well for them. I think that's really an under-appreciated part of their job, tight ends and the receivers. It's all about the stat sheet and fantasy catches or however that stuff works. Those guys go out there and compete every play and that helps a lot of other guys. That means a lot to our football team.”
