Christmas tree, pizza slize or simply "da tree". This deployment allows no OTS, unless oponent has grab, leap and a ton of luck.
The T should be a tackle so in case of a riot he would be in a good position to blitz the biggest threat. Tackle also makes the sneaking in between the ranks more difficult. G should be a guard. maybe helps a bit against the leaper and in case of riot helps out on any side. Obviously sidestep and stand firm are the best ots killers, but lacking these skills, this is as good as it gets.
Don't wanna be robbed by a OTS any more? try the tree. Its almost fool proof. almost. because there is no medicine against severe BS (and natural one turners) but laugh and congratulate (and stick da boot into the one turners face whenever possible).
Enjoy da tree!

Ag5 Gutter, I'd still try it without grab.
Best bet is to have Side Step on the line against anyone without grab, and Stand firm against teams lacking in juggs.

If I can get a push, I can get a one turner. To beat that, you have to make it near impossible to get that push

You have games as proof of concept?

All I see is that it adds a first block to move a LOS guy South or North.

Yeah, easy, don't have to leap-blitz, can leap over to fill the gap between the guard and the line, then blitz from the end to avoid wasting a push, sidestep on the receiver and you're through with 2 pushes, clear with 4 pushes or a leap receiver, with less filling needed and plenty of options to push if you get early pows.

At higher TV, that's easier than the basic fence up the back.

Catch in 2x TZs to start it, or intercept chance later, is the biggest problem, but I do take NoS when I can on a one-turner and Safe Throw on the throwers who have everything else useful. Frogs I'd expect to 1-turn that with a sidestep catcher more often than not with the 3+ catch to start it, the extra defenders in close like that just make it easier with the teams that are good at it.

Pretty sure my Dorfs could one-turn that, even, everything's so close and easy to use for chains, makes it easier for the slayers to help.
