Is a RBs perceived ability to block in pass protection so important that it keeps our best runners on the bench? I have heard several posters state that the reason Gilly didn't play more in 2011 and why Kelvin doesn't play more now is pass protection. IMO it would be easier to teach a gifted runner to block than the reverse. Secondly, both Gilly and KT grew up as RBs so the concept isn't new to them; if UF was converting a track star I could understand the delay. What evidence is there to support such claims? Were Demps and Rainey devastating blockers? They must have been because they kept Gilly and Joyer off the field for a year. Is KT really bad in pass protection? If so is it enough to keep him off the field or is pass protection a convenient excuse for not recognizing talent?
