The Tight end position has become ever so crucial to the evolving NFL offenses. Teams like the Baltimore Ravens San Francisco 49ers and the New England patriots are just a few teams whose tight end focused schemes have helped catapult them from worst to first or set a presence of continued dominance! Daniel Wilcox a former Superbowl champion with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is one of many who help lead the evolution of the H back position which is a hybrid of a fullback and tight or more of the model of what the 2020 tight end looks like.
I checked in on Daniel on is Journey in football the tight end position and fitness endeavors
Respect: What is Fitness football Fantasy’?
D.Wilcox:; My Publicist Eddie Rhodman, Isaiah Stanback who won a Superbowl with the Seattle Seahawks and myself put our heads together for a great workout for ordinary people to train like an NFL player. We probably had over 100 people on Superbowl weekend out and over 350 sign up. It was a great atmosphere in little Haiti in Miami
Respect: What did you think that experience gave to the people who attended ?
D.Wilcox: I life everything is about respect. I think we gain a lot of respect from the people who participated. In order to play football you have really hone in on your technique. When people got tired we made sure to slow things down and fix their technique. When people get tired their technique falters so so by correcting their technique we put them in position to go hard and that’s when you gain the respect
RESPECT.: You essentially floated from position to position when you first got into the league: Do you think Daniel Wilcox then would be an asset to the NFL now?
D.Wilcox : When I came in i literally floated around from position top position. John Gruden in Tampa didn’t know what to do with me. They moved me from running back to fullback to wide receiver and every time they move you you’re learning a totally new position. When I got to Baltimore, when I got my title as H back so Brian Bullock was the first one to say your an H back so he literally created a position for me/ Fast Forward 10 years later everybody is playing with H backs.
Respect: Where do you see the Ravens getting better as a team?
D.WIlcox: This is the first time in team history where people are afraid to play the Ravens offense with the edition of Lamar Jackson.. When I played Ray Lewis told us all y’all have to do is score 21 because we are going to make sure the other team doesn’t score 21 points. They are not going to have a running back over 100 yards” so if we scored 3 touchdown we were going to win every game. Now you have to to stop the raven offense from scoring 40 points and that is scary
Respect: Do you see Lamar Jackson taking another Step this year?
D.Wilcox; Well I’ll put it like this when you were a freshman in high school you were the low guy on the totem pole by the time you were a senior you were almost invincible. Same thing happens when you get to college. This is Lamar year 3 so basically he like a Junior is High school or college so this is when he is going to start to feel himself build a sense of confidence by being in the same offense. He might start making his own check at the line of scrimmage. And Next year when he is in his fourth year he is going to be on top of his game!
