With the super bowl coming up next month I figured I would talk about how power relates to O and D linemen. Power is equal to force â€¢ velocity. Offensive linemen and defensive linemen tend to have a large mass and are able to apply a lot of force in a small period of time. Since the linemen are able to apply such a large amount of force they cause a displacement in a short period of time. This means they have a lot of power which could be found using the equation.
