Scouting Report: Strengths
- Uses his hands well, with good hand placement to maximize his powerful punch. Horst shows impressive coordination between his upper and lower body when moving in pass protection.
- He thrives on physicality, often out-grappling bigger defensive linemen and winning in the phone booth with tenacity and upper-body strength.
- He’ll struggle to get a push at the points of attack against NFL defensive linemen.
- Carries his weight naturally, wide-framed with low body fat, along with long arms and large, powerful hands. He moves naturally, with agile feet and the natural balance to mirror in pass protection.
- He is a work in progress with high-end physical traits. He’s extremely light on his feet for a 300-pounder, a natural knee bender who plays with balance and leverage.
- Horst does a nice job working with teammates to build the pocket, anchoring against bull rushers and displaying good awareness against stunts and twists.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Whiffs on blocks after beaten initially and lacks range and lateral quickness. Plays too high and without proper leverage, pad level and can be passive.
- Not an explosive athlete and has limited range. Will pop upright off the snap and needs to stay balanced, avoid the habit of lunging.
- He's athletic and a pure left tackle whose high-hipped frame and waist bending might be exposed against pro pass rushers.
