Often times, it's the defense making the highlight-worthy hits on the ball carriers, as it's their job to hit them. That is why when it's offensive players bringing the contact, it's such a fun play to watch. Whether it's a running back trucking a linebacker or the ball carrier giving a big stiff arm to the defender, these are exciting, memorable plays.
For example, fan favorite fullback of the San Francisco 49ers, Kyle Juszczyk, gave a monster stiff arm to Minkah Fitzpatrick last season give the defensive back his true welcome to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Juszczyk has been a fan favorite for his entire career, from when he played on the Baltimore Ravens until now. Kyle Shanahan sought out the fullback when he became a free agent, due to the variety of things he is capable of doing as a player.
He is a strong blocker, shown by the rushing success everywhere he has gone. The fullback is also a strong runner, shown by that huge stiff arm and his seven first downs on 18 rushing attempts with the 49ers. Juszczyk is also a talented receiver, totaling 1,647 yards and eight touchdowns as a receiver for his career.
The 49ers fullback is a talented, exciting player, and he will likely make more highlight-worthy plays this season.
