Luke Joeckel Offensive Tackle Texas A&M
Luke Joeckel is the premier Offensive Lineman in the 2013 NFL Draft. He is our #1 Rated Offensive Lineman, as well as our #1 Overall Prospect in this year’s NFL Draft. Joeckel is a top tier talent, and has the skill set to be a Franchise Left Tackle at the next level. Below is our finalized scouting report.
– Possesses Ideal Size, standing 6’6″ and weighing in at 310 lbs.
– Excellent footwork in pass protection.
– Solid first step out of his stance
– Good lateral movement against pass rushers
– Great Upper Body strength.
– Unique mobility for an Offensive Tackle
– Experience in the SEC against quality pass rushers, also a three year starter
– Needs to follow through on run blocks
– Above average run blocker at best
– Needs to use his Lower Body strength more as he engages a defender, rather than reach with his arms
– Should look to gain 10 lbs of muscle before the draft.
Joeckel has the opportunity to be the first player taken on April 25th. He’s not perfect, but he’s a solid prospect. I see a Franchise Left Tackle when I see Luke Joeckel, and I see him translating to the next level with little resistance. Joeckel does need work, and will look to solidify himself as an overall player in the upcoming months.
