Tackle DataBase
5 Jonah Williams - OT x Alabama 6044 302 xx

"... Williams is a technician with the combination of balance, body control and hand skills to emerge as a perennial Pro Bowler on the edge. He moves defenders off the ball in the running game while also flashing the athleticism and strength to build a wall around the quarterback in pass protection- B Brooks - ( Rates #2)

Experience at LT and RT...Never missed a game...Dominant run and pass blocker...Sets quick in pass pro...Plays a physical game...No apparent weaknesses...5-star HS recruit....Easily cuts off wide speed and anchors...Better player than McGlinchey...Should be a Top 5 pick - PFW

Self-motivated student of the game...Long & strong...Film junkie...Would probably be moved to LT after a year or so...Might not possess elite length (???) and agilitybut he's savvy and tough...Extremely quick off the snap....Low stance, solid footwork and sound technique...leader in the trenches...Got notably bulldozed on one play by Clemson's Cleland Ferrell...Aggressiveness can be borderline wild... leading to sloppy mechanics...Needs to add 10 - 15 lbs... (unubstantiated) rumors that he's "soft....Comp: Jake Matthews - Lindy's

Not a prototype blindside protector...Could survive on a team that wants to play power football...Ceiling is higher as a guard - Excellent pulling as lead-blocker...will consistently generate movement at POA...Lack of length could lead to a move inside - Athlon

Elite technique fundamentals and work-ethic...Has all the tools to compliment his athletism and size - USA Today

Forty: 5.12...Ten: 1.77...BP: 23 ...3C: 8.01...VJ: 28.0...BJ: 8'4...Hand: 10.1...Arm: 33.6....

6 Yodny Cajuste - OT x West Virginia 6047 302 xx

One of the better athletes at the tackle positions...easily adjusts on the move...2 injuries...Will need some work in the run game, coming from a pass-first college pgm...Could be one of the first tackles selected due to excellent athletic traits - PFW

One of the most athletic lineman in this year's draft...Strong...Just one year of HS football...Elite pass blocking traits...High-effort player (Benches 495 lbs/dead-lifts 735 lbs)...One of the best 10-yd splits in the draft...anxious feet in pass pro....Can be a bit late gettig out on screens...Foot and knee injury history...Most appealing asset is his upside - Lindy's

Seems to be the total package physically...Better in the run game generating push at POA...Plays with nasty disposition...Flashes in pass pro - but a mixed bag: inconsistent mechanics, sloppy footwork and poor hand placement..Medical concerns (knee)....A quality starter but hard to trust early in career...a move inside to guard ight be advisable - Athlon

Forty: DNP...Ten: DNP...BP: 32 ...3C: DNP...VJ: DNP....BJ: DNP...Hand: .10.0...Arm: 34....

7 Jawaan Taylor - OT x Florida 6050 312 xx

Naturally strong...stays on his feet...comes off the ball quickly...stays low and shows power...quick st in pass pro...quick feet...Natural bender...Great size, natural strength and durability bu not very exposive...soft body...knock-kneed...a bit too heavy...Raw...already a solid player who should continue to improve - PFW

"... Taylor is a "people mover" with excellent strength, power and athleticism. He is capable of climbing to the second level on combo blocks and uses that same athleticism to snuff out pass rushers on the edge. . - B Brooks - ( Rates #1)

Might be better suited as an OG...Stick and move skills are special for size...Not an elite athlete by any means but technique-soundness allows him to execute the necessary moves...Plays with infectious energy but will sometimes take the foot off the pedal...Must keep his weight in check...somewhat sluggish feet..Comp: Joe Barksdale - Lindy's

Massive RT...Light on his feet...best in the run game...still a bit raw...Can overset at times and be susceptible to inside counters...Has natural tools and potential to kick inside - Athlon

Exceptional size...good to very good athlete for size....Very long arms...strong and powerful...slides and recovers really well...But intensity level seems to be lacking....Run blocking not up to par....Highly talented, but seems to be just going thru the motions. - PFW

Played in all 36 games at Ole Miss...Former 5-Star HS recruit who was protector of Kyler Murray...Worth a first round pick...Prototypical size and strength with a nice wide stance and solid footwork...Physical player...can handle counter-moves in pass pro...can go one-on-one off the edge with just about anyone...Limited bend and flexibility...footwork can use further improvement...a bit high cut...weight may need monitoring...Comp: Duane Brown - Lindy's

1 Andre Dillard - OT x Washington State 6050 315 xx

"... Dillard is arguably the best pass protector in the class, with quick feet and a refined game. He neutralizes pass rushers with a variety of quick-set maneuvers and kick-slide techniques that are advanced for this stage of his career. Although he needs some work as a run blocker, Dillard's strengths in pass protection could vault him up the charts.- B Brooks - ( Rates #3)

Versatile...Takes advantage of his school's balanced attack...Speed seemed questionable during Senior Bowl week...Sound technique including excellent hand-use...Played both OT positions...Too often late off the snap...must play lower and improve footwork - Lindy's

Massive RT with long arms and well-proportioned frame...Moves well for size...Makes up in size for lack of elite athleticism...good in run game/consistently finishes blocks...Not a LT prospect but projects as quality starting RT = Athlon

Forty: 5.05...Ten: 1.83...BP: 23 ...3C: 7.66...VJ: 33.5...BJ: 9'3...Hand: 10.1...Arm: 32.8....

9 Mitch Hyatt - OT x Clemson 6053 303 xx

Very durable roock-solid college lineman who is equally proficient vs. pass or run....Not very athletic...Lacks an NFL build (more like a guard than tackle)...Projects as a NFL starter (with time) - PFW

More of a finesse blocker who could use 10 pounds or so more bulk...Highly athletic OT who excels in pass pro...Impressive speed for size...Sound sidekick...great bend...offers few surprises...can be completely manhandled by bigger defenders...can be slow to the spot...Needs to finish better...must become a better chop-blocker...good bloodlines (Dan Benish) - Lindy's

One of the most impressive careers of any college lineman...Good movement skills and innate undrstanding of the run game....Heady technician....Can mirror quickness in pass pro...Short arms/ lack of length...blockers get into his chest...Could eventually start in a finesse offense, but finding a spot for him will be a challenge - Athlon

Feett are impossibly light and nimble...at his best blocking on the move as a run blocker...nasty finisher...Lack of length is problematic...needs to make better use of hands...Doesn't generate ideal push...Not a prototypical LT, but can hold his own as a RT....Floor is as a starting OG...a big upgrade for a rushing attack - Athlon
