David Diehl Ranked Last in Pass Blocking Efficiency for Guards and Tackles

By Jeff Shull

I hate to pile on a guy, especially considering I just wrote that the Giants should cut him, but David Diehl is getting piled on by more than just me.

According to Pro Football Focus, Diehl was the worst pass blocking tackle in 2011. Not to out perform himself, he was also their worst in pass blocking efficiency as a guard.

They ranked all the tackles and guards who took at least 200 snaps last season, and Diehl took over 200 at both positions. I don’t know that this has ever happened before at PFF, but I would be shocked if it had.

It seems pretty clear to me, and hopefully to the Giants, that Diehl needs to be released, or significantly reduce his pay and make him a backup.
