Chris Owens C Alabama Scouting Report

Position rank: 9
40-yard dash time: 5.29-seconds
Height: 6-3, Weight: 305 lbs
Strengths
  • Anchors well and plays with the low center of gravity and natural bend to seal the inside lanes. Has violent hands with hustle to close off bubble screens and lead to flatten linebackers. Nasty demeanor and highly coachable.
  • Plays with appropriate wide base and intelligence, instincts and agility to seal the edge. Aggressive extending with power to punch and looks comfortable in space.
  • Solid positional run blocker who flashes the nasty demeanor and killer instinct scouts covet.
  • Awareness is above-average for his limited experience. Sells trap block and can turn to seal. Fluid getting to and adjust at the second level.
  • 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.
Weaknesses
  • Needs to work on his technique in pass protection, using more consistent leverage and continuing to move his feet.
  • Loses leverage battles and plays with high pad level. Can be late off the snap.
  • Needs to prove his worth in a straight-ahead running game.
  • Flashes the ability to move his man with his hands, but is not yet consistent in this area.
  • 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.
