Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Consistently lands blocks at the second level, and Houy finishes strong. As a pass protector, he has violent, heavy hands. Along with a strong initial punch, he has the hand strength to grip and redirect pass rushers.
  • A work in progress with some raw tools, has a solid blend of length and agility. Houy has a powerful upper body and does an impressive job using his length, with power behind his initial punch and the grip to grab and move defenders.
  • Does a nice job on the second level, moving upfield quickly and showing the flexibility and balance to land blocks in space.
  • Displays good awareness when it comes to reading moving bodies, effectively reacting and adjusting. He also shows a good feel for combo blocks.
  • He’s especially light on his feet considering his size, a fluid mover who has natural balance as he kick-slides and sets. Houy has the long arms to ward off pass rushers and send them flying past the pocket.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • While Houy moves well in the run game, he’s not an elite athlete and doesn’t have the potential to stick at left tackle in the NFL.
  • Has fairly heavy feet, struggling to mirror against quicker defenders. Houy lacks the range to get out as an effective puller, and he can often look stiff when moving out into space and zeroing in on bodies.
  • For all of his physical gifts, often gets terribly sloppy, especially in pass protection.
  • Isn't an elite quick-twitch blocker and his height causes him to be out-quicked. Leaks inside pressure when his technique gets sloppy.
