Brian Foley OL Holy Cross Scouting Report

Position rank: 68
40-yard dash time: 5.32-seconds
Height: 6-4, Weight: 314 lbs
Strengths
  • Has the feet to adjust when he anticipates what's coming. Effective trapping and bends at the knees with adequate core strength to absorb the bull rush. Can clear a path at the second level if he hits the target.
  • Anchors against larger defenders in the middle; resets hands to maintain distance. Athletic enough to help on nose tackle then pick up twist or late blitzer. Mirrors quick interior rushers. Looks to help the center when uncovered.
  • Moves well and squares to finish on the move. Better anchor than his height suggests and capable of absorbing a punch and recovering quickly.
  • Has average height with a narrow base out of his stance. Needs to get stronger in his lower half to anchor at the point of attack.
  • Finishes and doesn't quit; competitor with a positive attitude and leadership traits that coaches admire.
Weaknesses
  • Not explosive in any aspect. Lacks the quickness to redirect and handle cut blocks. Unable to complete most combo blocks. Gets an initial shove at the line but doesn't move the second target. Poor body control and lacks accuracy blocking on the move.
  • Very raw technique, playing with inconsistent hand placement fails to sustain blocks.
  • Finesse blocker with average arm length who doesn't use his hands well to win at the point of attack.
  • A short-area blocker with limited range and doesn't consistently get to the second level. Will play undisciplined at times, especially in space. Lacks a finishing attitude.
  • Bends at the waist and loses leverage, also has a tendency to lunge and lean too far when flustered.
