In case you haven't seen the latest copy of ESPN the Magazine, this year's NFL preview has a ton of content from Football Outsiders, including division picks straight from FOA 2009 (including each team's projection broken down into percentage chance of being a Super Bowl contender, playoff contender, and so on). The focus of the issue as a whole is on the offensive line, and part of that focus is a giant glossary of offensive line terms written by Mike Tanier. ESPN has also expanded this glossary online with a couple of features.
