In my solitaire league, the guards need to be quicker because all my teams use them to pull on traps and sweeps.  They have to be fast enough to get out in front of the backs on the sweeps and fast enough to trap down the line.  My tackles generally are used in straight ahead or double-team blocks, although they sometimes pull on pitch outs.

This is a great question.  For me, In general, I try to get my guards tweaked to be a little quicker.  Number one reason is for pulling (so they can at least get out of the stinking way if nothing else).  Also, though, that added quickness can help them head off a sneaky LB occasionally.  For running plays, the added quickness may help them clear the path for my RB's downfield.  Additionally, I do try to keep my tackles a little slower as I like to play with the ineligible receiver downfield rules.  So for that same reason I don't want my guards to be TOO fast.
