Scouting Report

Pros

  • Ideal frame for a Offensive Tackle; should be able to add weight without losing any mobility.
  • Long Arms (35″) that allow him to keep defenders off of his body.
  • Shows excellent awareness, picks up blitzes and twists very well.
  • Blocks well in open space; does a good job hitting linebackers at the 2nd level.

Cons

  • Needs to get stronger and add about 10 lbs of muscle.
  • Not a powerful run blocker; grabber not a puncher.
  • Inexperienced. A former quarterback, tight end, and defensive end; started two years at OT.
  • Lacks a strong anchor; can be gotten by a strong bull rush.
