    Some strengths and weaknesses courtesy of NFL.com


    • Gets to his work with tight, inside hands
    • Adequate job of putting helmet on helmet to occupy single blocks
    • Maintains base width through protection mirroring


    • Below-Average mass could become an issue against NFL size
    • Gets out of balance when working combo blocks up to the linebacker
    • Beaten by cross-face counters due to excessive lateral lean
  • Andrew Raym – Oklahoma

    Some strengths and weaknesses courtesy of NFL.com


    • Burly and broad with NFL measurables for the position
    • More than happy to turn a rep into a full-on brawl
    • Better than expected mirror and recovery in protection


    • Hands are often too slow to the party
    • Below-average lateral quickness in his blocking range
    • Body control is a big issue in fitting up blocks cleanly
  • Zach Frazier – West Virginia

    West Virginia v Virginia Tech

    Some strengths and weaknesses courtesy of NFL.com


    • Wide squared-off frame with muscular arms and exceptional core strength
    • Uses darting eyes and plus instincts to locate pressure points around him
    • Punches with good placement and above-average grip strength


    • Powerful, but carries shorter arms, limiting his block radius
    • Needs to prove he can anchor with more shallow pass sets
    • Lack of length means goose is cooked once rusher beats him at his edge
