The workout lasts about an hour. The first half is split between individual drills and then work against the defensive line. Then comes the 7-on-7 session when the offensive linemen go back to work among themselves.
There are ways to make it less mundane. They'll work on inside zone one day and outside zone the next. They'll go over the power plays and double teams that are new under first-year offensive line coach Ron Crook. For effect, they combat one another with the ones playing defensive line using pads to add emphasis to the drill.
That matters because these workouts have to happen without pads.
"You get a little bit of change," Feigt said, "but it's really just the same thing over and over again as you try to perfect it."
Truth be told, the 7-on-7 sessions aren't an entire waste. None of the linemen take snaps as oversized fullbacks or inside receivers, but there's value in watching.
"Some of us go back and get the play with the quarterback and then we quiz the younger guys on what they have to do on that play," Feigt said. "That gets them caught up pretty quickly."
That's the point for all of the linemen. Feigt said the newcomers and the inexperienced returning players have broken through the nerves that restricted them earlier. They're used to the physical demands and what is expected to execute every play, different as they may be.
This is not solely about lessening or eliminating the learning curve when the Mountaineers meet at the first practice Aug. 1. While many are using the summer to get caught up with the veterans, it's equally important for those players to stay ahead and give the Mountaineers the skill through experience they expect to build on in the fall.
"For the new guys, it's big to get a grip on what we're looking for in the system and how they want us to step in each play, and it's good to get an understanding of every single play," Feigt said. "But for us older guys, it's more about not forgetting about your technique. That's why we go out there two times a week. We're practicing to get it right in our head. We go over it every day so we don't forget. We don't want to go out there a month before we play and be like, 'Oh, I kind of forgot about all of that.' "
