Scouting Report: Strengths
  • A better than expected athlete who steadily improved in pass protection. Stout at the point of attack and maintains a wide base.
  • Quick feet to get inside of defensive tackles to wall off inside and reach linebackers at the second level.
  • Hergel has the powerful upper body, strong core and the grip to win at the point of attack. He does a solid job as a hand fighter. Hergel also flashes the agility to get around and land blocks as a puller.
  • Solid positional run blocker who flashes the nasty demeanor and killer instinct scouts covet.
  • Willing to attack and punches multiple times to finish the play. Quick to pick up edge blitz and shows no panic, easily adjusting angles and resetting his feet. Can recover and reset his anchor. Rarely late off the snap.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Tends to slip off blocks when going against bigger linemen, and Hergel too often finishes plays on the ground.
  • Heavy-footed with an inconsistent kick slide. He’s going to have an awful time with speed rushers if asked to block on an island; he’s likely going to need help on the edge regardless.
  • Has enough power in the run game, but at times he seems to lack a mean streak.
  • Can be beat off the edge coming out of his stance lunging to reach speedy wide rushers.
