Gabe Megginson OL Illinois State Scouting Report

Position rank: 74
40-yard dash time: 5.38-seconds
Height: 6-5, Weight: 315 lbs
Strengths
  • 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 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.
  • 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.
Weaknesses
  • Loses leverage battles and plays with high pad level. Can be late off the snap.
  • Drops his head too often on contact, which causes problems against swim moves.
  • Absorbs too many hits, delivers few. Technically unpolished and stops his feet on contact. Not a threat in space and lacks overall awareness.
  • Has inconsistent quickness and lacks the natural burst to maintain balance and block in space. Extends his arms, but has soft hands and doesn't jolt rushers.
  • Needs to prove his worth in a straight-ahead running game.
