Yeah I think you're right. It was a stretch play and it probably caught him off guard. Instead of charging up field he backed off and the lineman just ran through him.
It's just a zone play. The LT and LG are comboing Tank to the playside ILB. When the LB (camp body) flows fast, the LT has to leave in a hurry, and the LG takes over. Zone is one of the 5 basic running concepts, IIRC. He's seen zone blocking before; Tank just had a bad play. He had terrible pad level and hand placement from the snap.
