offensive guard/center archetypes and ratings

Offensive guards and centers use the same ratings in the Backbreaker Football League.  These offensive lineman are given faster speed ratings than the offensive tackles because they pull more often. 

There are 4 different types of guards/centers in the Backbreaker Football League.  The 4 types are: Bodyguard, Hybrid, Mauler, and Zone Blocker.  Each archetype has it’s strengths and weaknesses.  All archetypes have 3 tiers (Gold, Silver, Bronze).
