  1. PFF has a generic run blocking grade, and then individual pass protection stats for all offensive linemen: total pass blocking snaps, sacks allowed, hits allowed and pressures allowed. They also attribute some sacks to running backs or tight ends in protection, or a QB who holds on to the ball too long. In those instances, they don’t usually attribute a sack to the offensive linemen, unless the defender beat two people to get to the QB.

    Pancakes isn’t that useful of a stat (and they don’t carry it), but they do have running back stats for yards per carry for running between each gap, as well as in the alleys. The run blocking grade is pretty good and correlates to yards before contact.
