Outside/Jailbreak Screen

On outside/jailbreak screen, are all the D-linemen left unblocked? And would Outside and Middle screens be blocked almost the same?

Everyone blocks except the offensive tackle to the called side.

On a middle screen you can allow the center as well as guards downfield (the "middle" releases).  The OT's would block their man to keep the middle receiver's lane open.  QB has to drop back about four steps before he throws over the heads of the rush.
