Scouting Report: Strengths
- Ridicously versatile and experienced offensive lineman who has played all four positions except center during six college campaigns
- Bursts off the line of scrimmage and has tremendous natural strength and power, able to dominate at the point of attack and wipe out defenders in the run game.
- Has a naturally wide base and good length. Long legs to cover a lot of ground with his initial kick slide. Has the quickness to set up quickly with enough lateral shuffle to mirror and mobility to get to the second level.
- Made Bruce Feldman's Freak's List - ranked #99. He wrote, "The Trojans’ best O-lineman is also their strongest player and their resident “Freak,” according to strength coach Bennie Wylie. Vorhees can bench-press 225 40 times."
- Overall is a major asset in the run game - has a super strong anchor and moves very well laterally
- Is effective when asked to pull, showing the agility, speed, and overall range to get out as a lead blocker, where Vorhees locates defenders and shows the ability to adjust and land blocks against linebackers.
- As a pass protector, he plays with good balance and holds up against the bull rush. Vorhees has strong hands and does a nice job gripping and latching on once he has his hands on the pass rusher.
- Has a powerful lower body and enough leg drive to knock defenders back at the point of attack. Vorhees flashes light feet as a pass protector, with the ability to mirror against quickness and the anchor strength to hold up against the bull rush.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Needs to prove his worth in a straight-ahead running game.
- Can struggle to stay engaged, especially on the second level. His hand placement can be sloppy, costing him power.
- He’ll have some trouble with quickness as a pass protector; Vorhees needs to make better use of his hands, and he often stops his feet once he makes initial contact as a pass protector.
- Will be an overaged prospect at 24
- His arms are far too short to play outside and still shorter than average compared to other guards (24th percentile)
- His foot speed is just average and he often plays too tall resulting in him losing the leverage battle
- Vorhees doesn’t have ideal coordination between his upper and lower body and is often overeager to land an initial punch and struggles against counter moves.
Scouting Report: SummaryAndrew Vorhees is a high floor low(ish) ceiling prospect who presents as a player with huge experience and excellent position versatility who has consistently performed at a high level as both a run and pass blocker while at USC. He has close to the ideal size for the position although has limited arm length which will limit his pro appeal as an inside-only player. Vorhees has only average quickness and footspeed and good but not elite lower body strength which limits his upside.
Vorhees has the ability to start immediately at the NFL level and be a very productive although not elite pro guard. Given this and his ability to play as a swing tackle in a pinch, Vorhees could go as high as the third round in the 2023 NFL draft.
