I STILL don't think he is a very good blocker. But, he has improved and is at least holding his own. But, the thing that makes him more effective is, once again Norv Turner's offense. Now instead of a defender running right past him and going for Ricky, they have to keep tabs on where Konrad is headed. That extra tentativeness, allows him to take one defender out of the game.
Konrad's problem in the blocking game is that he gives up too easily on his blocks. He does not keep pushing to the whistle. He usually gets a good initial block, but then will let go of the defender early. I have seen this happen several times, where his defender than runs down the play. Plus he is only good for ONE block. Dyer, is almost always going to push 2 people out of position to make the play, and if he DOES only take one man... that man will be on his ass.
