Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Demonstrated the ability to track the ball over his shoulder. Good flexibility and balance to adjust to the poorly thrown pass. Good vision and patience for screens.
  • Has good burst to and through the hole. A patient runner with good vision and burst for the cutback. Squares his shoulders and can knock the defender back onto his heels. Good leg drive and forward lean to gain extra yardage after contact.
  • Underrated blocker. Cognizant pass defender who is willing to meet a linebacker in the gap.
  • Solid receiver in the flat, capable of running through tackles on the edge to move the chains. Flexible enough to catch passes thrown behind him.
  • Fights for extra yardage and is reliable in short-yardage situations.
  • Not truly explosive, but possesses enough speed to beat linebacker to the edge.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Luepke won't threaten the top of the defense.
  • Needs to show better patience to allow blocks to develop and is too often running up the backs of his blockers. He isn't naturally explosive as a runner and lacks elusiveness in the open field.
  • His playing speed is less than elite. Luepke won’t run past defenders like Luepke did at the college level.
