Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Solid positional run blocker who flashes the nasty demeanor and killer instinct scouts covet.
  • Coordinated when moving to the second level as a run blocker, capable of landing blocks on the move.
  • 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.
  • Douglas has thick limbs and is quick off the snap, and his powerful leg drive allows him to get a push at the line of scrimmage.
  • Quick out of his stance with the footwork to be effective in front of screens. Willing to get out in front of ballcarriers to take out defensive backs and linebackers.
  • Quick setting up after the snap and slides well to the outside, staying patient and balanced off the snap.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Douglas often sets too tall, which will be problematic against NFL speed-to-power rushers. He’s a bit underpowered in the run game, often coming off the ball too high and failing to play with proper leverage.
  • While he’s solid as an athlete, he’s more comfortable moving forward as a run blocker than setting in pass protection, as Douglas too often relies solely on his initial punch to stand up pass rushers instead of moving his feet.
  • Flashes the ability to move his man with his hands, but is not yet consistent in this area.
