1Matt Kalil7.4USC6065/306Keeps shoulders squared when drop stepping, turns to cut off angle. Outstanding agility, not sure he'll ever get beat to the spot outright. Extremely mature in his use of length, uses it to absorb, jolt, and control. He determines where the rusher goes instead of being the one reacting. Lone weakness seems to stem from lack of strength, latches on but can't sustain the grip against powerful DL. Already improved? Solid cut blocks, drives through the legs and anticipates movement. Takes inside rusher in blitzing situations. Great footwork when pulling, can hit any target coupled with sound anticipation and reaction quickness.Biggest pass protection issue may be rusher that start on the outside then work in. Rarely needed to sit back and bend at the knees to recover. Awareness to take inside rushers on 3-step drops. If pass rusher gets too deep, uses momentum against him to push by. First drops steps may be too deep, fixable to prevent inside rushers. Active hands until he gets proper placement, hands have strength, forceful. Occasionally doesn't sustain contact after first hit when pulling. Really understands when DL is off balance, throws them down. Could do better to stay blocker a single shoulder than allow them to weave, adjust. Keeps DLs shoulders from getting parallel. Needs to quit punch vs inside rusher, use arm bar to slow momentum. May not get a ton of upfield momentum when run blocking but consistently wins 1on1 situations.http://bit.ly/H3Sabg

2Riley Reiff6.8Iowa6056/313Puts a lot of players on the ground when helping on a double team. Keeps driving once putting them off balance, doesn't settle, not complacent. Solid forward momentum in run game after 2 steps. Doesn't get lost when assignment isn't there, goes to plan B. Moves like an athlete, purposeful steps, light when he needs to be, heavy in tough situations. Drop steps with fluidity and balance, stays low and delivers firm punch to the chest, patient. Even on the rare occasion he overextends he stays latched on, doesn't immediately lose. Utilizes cut blocks very well at the second level. Loses most frequently vs inside spin move when dropping his head. Perhaps a bit obvious in stance when dropping in pass pro? May not be able to make first contact every time but hands are extremely active, always looking to gain primary positioning. Knows reach length, gets hands on DL as soon as they enter his area. Another way he gets beat is arm over swat to outside rush. If surprised on 1st contact he may lack a little natural power but recovers very nicely, always keeps feet. Handles both speed and power rushers consistently. Can improve on sticking foot in ground with hard anchor and redirecting, more technical and finesse than power. If he can't reach player to control them he pushes to redirect out of the hole. Effort after INT to make tackle.http://bit.ly/GTBcn8

.

3Cordy Glenn6.4Georgia6056/345A very powerful upper body, can absorb poor rushers while separating at the same time. A little high in his stance, yes, but tremendous length. Not a graceful drop step but see him bend in the knees to recover, anchor, absorb edge rushers. Flashes immaculate form, straight chest, low posture, punch inside to grasp, bent knees. May lack lateral quickness, cannot sustain block (stay in front) when QB scrambles one way then to opposite side. Even on quick inside move, Glenn uses armbar and then rides DL that way. Gets to second level well but lacks anticipation and reaction quickness. Just a massive frame, surprisingly well built and carries it well. Can show terrible form but consistently wins with it, bends at waist, head down, will that change in NFL? Tough to question it if he keeps winning with it. Can get caught vs inside spin after latching on too close to body. Wish he was a bit more athletic when driving shoulder in run game. Can really absorb a strong punch from edge rusher on island. If step is too lateral, could get beat to the edge by outstanding speed rush. Disoriented when left uncovered at the snap. If his block is taken care of he is a bit lackadaisical. Lowers head to drive when he thinks he has won block. Flashes awareness to fall/collapse on inside driving DL if they are too low. Seems to bend on edge rush rip moves, keeps feet moving on same line. Can be caught around the edge vs very good jump. Needs to work on cut blocks, needs to drive through legs. Pulls quite well from G spot, one step back then drive forward. Passes of DL very well form inside position. http://bit.ly/HlWfd2

.

4Mitchell Schwartz6.1California6053/318Great posture, upright chest but sits back in stance, delivers solid punch when DL enters area. Footwork is off at times, doesn't 100% seal the hole properly. Active hands, keeps readjusting even when DE continues to swat. Bends/leans adequately with DEs around edge of pocket. Gets pushed back by bigger DEs but not beaten, readjusts feet to stuff backwards momentum, not sure if he can plant in one step and full anchor though. Best suited for RT. Cut blocks need work, doesn't sell initially while changing levels, needs to dive through not at. Utilizes inside arm bar very well, stunts gap hitting DL. Shows killer instinct, finishes blocks all the way to the ground. Understands pocket dynamics, when to ride inside or prevent inside pressure. Slight issue with initial steps in pass drop being too close together. Much better in pocket focused offense, struggles latching when QB scrambles out of the pocket. Doesn't let up on double teams, psychically washes down. Not quickest but smooth enough to get to the second level. Not 100% successful when getting to reach block. More of a positional run blocker that will take you down if knees buckle. http://bit.ly/GR8Kkw

.

5Kelechi Osemele6.1Iowa State6054/333A mammoth sized player, carries it well. Suspect lateral foot quickness vs fast outside/inside move. If balanced and both hands get latched on, its over. Strong hands and length can help recovery/reaction. Initial posture looks uncomfortable at times, + adequate drop step. Feet look slow/methodical when force to move left/right. Too focused on outside move, allows inside rush. Limited when getting targets at second level, fair anticipation though. Once in solid positioning can really dominate. Keeps too much distance in run game, less strength when extended. + anchor, absorbs contact well with reach/body. Rarely forced to plant and bend at knee but flashes ability. Killer instinct? Solid posture.http://bit.ly/w5gN4H

.

6Mike Adams5.8Ohio State6072/323Lack of strength shows up when facing immediate inside rushers, gets hands on that first move but weakness allows penetration. See flashes of athletic feet but if he doesn't latch on even slower rushers can beat him around the edge, especially when too high and wide. Play style is like athletic OT but he doesn't have the feet, lacks the strength for RT and toughness, where does he fit, likely RT. He mirrors but he doesn't have control, would be better to latch and lock. Doesn't drive the shoulder down the line well, loses leverage. Lacks anticipation on quick moves, feet get stuck in ground, over extends. Feet are light when they should be strong (run game), heavy when they should be light (pass pro). Majority of times he doesn't sustain block, rusher is free at end of play. Punch doesn't jolt but does start at waist and extends. Sometimes doesn't even get a hand on a pass rusher, susceptible to outside step and quick inside move, left there waiting. Unsure of positives beyond mirror ability early during the play for most of the play and a frame to build on/add strength. Flashes ability to latch and hold but far from often enough.http://bit.ly/JoYy2s

.

7Jonathan Martin5.8Stanford6053/312A pusher instead of an engager, likes to keep distance rather than control. Lacks consistent power, first when jolting with punch, then throughout pass protection. Doesn't block from an athletic position, hands at waist until punch, shoulders over toes. Thought he was too athletic to be a waist bender, but he plays like one. His hands are too easily swatted away, but they are active when readjusting. Rarely able to absorb initial power rush without taking 1 or 2 steps back. Gets beat most often when DL plants outside and works back in. Want to see him sit back in his stance, too stiff. If DL gets a step after a counter move, lacks foot quickness to get in front and contain. Just looks so tentative, will he ever hit to punish, patty cake. Steps are too short in dropping in pass pro. Knees are stiff, but somehow he is rarely tested. Lacks anticipation at the second level but gets there quickly. Will struggle vs quick edge rushers, power guys that will immediately jolt him, and DL that step outside and work in. He's robotic. Reactive instead of directive. Better run blocker, posture a bit high but always forces forward. Does not latch on/control enough in passing or running game. Only saw one decleater attempt, crack back on reverse, barely hit the target. RT onlyhttp://bit.ly/GZWeun

.

8Bobby Massie5.8Ole Miss6061/316RT, shoulders over toes when run blocking, contact with chest. Doesn't have strength in initial punch. Drop step lacks a bit of coordination, light on his feet. Stiff legs, doesn't bend knees to absorb contact, leans into. Latches on with hands, can keep locked clutch, feet don't keep up. Stiff at times, sometimes too slow to adjust to edge rushers that beat him to the spot, especially after helping inside on a stunt. Dreadful cut blocker, drops head and goes straight to the ground. Flashes very good run blocking, seals inside. If he gets shoulder he gets a killer instinct, light a fire in him. Gets to the second level very well, jolting hit. Does nothing in pass protection except latch on.http://bit.ly/IpoBT2

.

9Zebrie Sanders5.6Florida State6054/320Starting LT after Datko injury. + athletic frame, knee bend, + posture in set. Quick punch/on time, weaker hands, rarely delivers a jolting pop. Quick slide looked good in games but very adequate at SrBowl, where he was consistently beat to the point. Needs to tweak his form, drop steps are too wide & shoulers are not squared. Susceptible to the push/pull. Very observant eyes, helps on blocks when free. Lacks quickness to change directions on inside move, needs to stay balanced & use length to recover. Promising flexibility to recover. Adequate run blocker but needs to add strength, hits targets at 2nd level. http://bit.ly/w0lCXz

.

10Brandon Mosley5.6Auburn6055/314Hits target at 2nd level well, high posture but unloads with nice punch. Not going to punish anyone to the ground, even if they're on one knee. Mirrors at second level, balanced with positioning. Loses leverage frequently when down blocking, shoulders pressed up, difficult to extend in those situations. He's a pusher not a latcher, prefers to keep distance and mirror rather than latch and control. Quick inside moves can get him, high posture makes arm bar difficult. Ducks head on contact too often. Punch does not jolt, DL just works right through it. Times he does very well to mirror and keep distance, usually against pass rushers. Too often he unloads on that first contact and job is done. http://bit.ly/IMZufk

.

11Donald Stephenson5.6Oklahoma6054/312Athletic player, really gets out of stance and to second level quickly. Lots of moving parts in pass protection and drop. When he gets off balance he tries to take DL down with him. Flashes overextension when facing outside speed rush. Lacks strength when hitting target at reach point, pad level is jolted up. Needs better balance when absorbing contact, very jittery and reactionary movements. Doesn't sustain blocks, especially not extend and latched onto chest plate. Don't see initial strength, its soft, not jolting. Doesn't move everything at once, feet then hands. Played LT.http://bit.ly/IrfBAd

.

12Jeff Allen5.6Illinois6037/307Gets held up when attempting to work into the second level. Rotates between RT and LT. Gets low on initial contact and bends up, no real power to push back. Uses arms to latch on nicely, a bit overextended but controls well, adjusts but off balance. Adequate drop step, may have anchor issues vs strong inside move, does get inside arm up to arm bar. Balance/overextending is an issue at times, especially when unloading on a punch. Not a waist bender, uses length to his advantage. Don't see enough power to move or jolt on first contact. Struggles most vs inside rips, can't keep that inside path, outside uses length to recover. Did see a flash of killer instinct when DL skipped and he drove him to the ground.http://bit.ly/JAJHTP

13James Brown5.5Troy6034/306

.

14Matt McCants5.5UAB6057/308Struggles vs inside move when feet are planted in pass drop, still doesn't get hands on them enough despite long arms. Lacks strength to arm bar. So raw, lacks reaction quickness to stay in proper positioning. Gets jolted frequently by first contact. Feet aren't in rhythm, very light and soft. Too high but does flash ability to get inside and seal hole with force. First contact comes with chest, has not learned how to use length. Quick steps to get to the second level, surprised at contact, doesn't prepare for it well. Once he gets hands on sometimes he acts like that is enough, not much power behind them. Not balanced at all, locked out legs, needs total posture overhaul. Flashes proper pass protection positioning if untouched through first three steps, hands in punch/ready, lower, needs to get in ready position more quickly. If he gets those steps he uses length well to push on edge rushers. Can really get caught planting outside vs rushers that work in. Feet are heavy or light at the wrong times. Flashes turning DE inside when sealing on the edge. Instantly moves hips forward, gets high on contact, weak core. http://bit.ly/JoPYRk

.

16Andrew Datko5.4Florida State6060/315Positional blocker, gets inside lane and closes out on away runs. Way too bent over at the snap, a lot of moving parts. Slows feet way too much, lacks anticipation and can't react quickly to outside rush when feet stop. Too high when striking at the second level. Arms stay too close to body when drive blocking, all lower body. Odd drop step, more of a shuffle than confident and coordinated steps. Waist bender, stiff lower body, lacks mirroring skills on counter moves. Can't stick foot in ground, anchor and redirect often. Posture is so high on his island, doesn't look under control.http://bit.ly/I6F1Aa

.

17Tom Compton5.2South Dakota6047/314Bent over at snap, plays shorter than listed. Correct shoulder/hand positioning in running game, understands sealing. Bursts into contact on pass pro rather than waiting/catching.Susceptible when pulling/on the move, does he lack balance? Struggles in run game vs quick get offs.http://bit.ly/yNq63S

.

18Markus Zusevics5.1Iowa6053/303

.

19Ryan Miller5.1Colorado6072/321High rear in stance, wide feet. - anchor vs quick contact/gap shooters that get in his chest, lacks strength to lock out. High on contact, lacks knee bend, makes contact with bent arms. Long first step when trapping, tries to force inside. Tenacity to finish blocks? Flexibility, bend and anchoring are HUGE issues at NFL level. Guard or Tackle, frame/length and quickness don't match. Not much of a mover, but has + body control. Lots of trouble recovering from backwards momentum. Rarely on the ground.http://bit.ly/zKWpOc
