Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He's infinitely coachable and athletically gifted with the ideal frame, physique, weight distribution, knee bend and hand strength to be molded into a special blocker.
  • Is effective when asked to pull, showing the agility, speed, and overall range to get out as a lead blocker, where Kipper locates defenders and shows the ability to adjust and land blocks against linebackers.
  • He’ll appeal to man-blocking teams, and he’s a fairly high-upside developmental pick when considering his value in the run game.
  • Kipper does a nice job working with teammates to build the pocket, anchoring against bull rushers and displaying good awareness against stunts and twists.
  • Has broad shoulders and flashes the playing strength and power to overwhelm at the point of attack.
  • Shows the speed to recover and slide back into his set but gets too narrow-based. Has jackhammer hands and delivers constant hits until the play is over. Has light, quick feet sliding but only adequate overall burst.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Can look a little shaky in pass protection against speed-to-power, as his upper and lower body aren’t always coordinated.
  • Although Kipper does have the physical traits of an NFL tackle, he might play too high to be a candidate to transition to guard.
  • He’ll occasionally stop his feet when delivering a punch, and he doesn’t play with ideal balance when moving back into his set. He’ll often struggle to mirror if he can’t win early on passing plays.
