See Nittany Lion assistant Sean "Chaos" Spencer use a blocking sled to help his defensive tackles and ends nail down technique.

With three starters off the to the NFL, many eyes will be on Penn State's defensive line this preseason. During the first practice of the 2016 campaign, that included our eyes (and video camera).

In the video above, you can see what we saw — namely, position coach Sean "Chaos" Spencer using what used to be known as a blocking sled (but now is actually anchored to the ground) to teach technique.

If you have trouble figuring out who the players are, well, they went at it roughly in this order (the order varied a bit on different reps).
