Liam Eichenberg was a three-year starter at left tackle at Notre Dame Fighting. His combo of pedigree coming out of high school and starting experience for a major college team has him climbing up NFL draft boards. While many see a natural left tackle, some see him playing guard in the NFL.

Strengths
  • Fundamentally sound and understands blocking angles, using body positioning to his advantage. Disciplined awareness and good intelligence.
  • Eichenberg is a wall that has not allowed a sack in the past two seasons. When he plants his feet and sets his base, defenders move backward before they move him. The biggest strength of Liam Eichenberg is his hands.
  • 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.
  • His drop back is smooth, in control, and has small slides to keep him in position.
  • Best on the outside because of his height and athleticism, but is capable of blocking on the move.
  • Lone concern is handling the superquick NFL edge rusher. Foot speed and quickness are very good, but not elite.
  • His football IQ is very solid. He understands blitz packages before they happen, and he responds to them at a very high level.
  • Excellent almost in run blocking.
Weaknesses
  • Eichenberg does tend to hold as well as leave his arms extended in a vulnerable spot.
  • Loses leverage battles and plays with high pad level. Can be late off the snap.
  • Attacks when necessary, though he won't consistently dominate and can lose balance overextending.
  • Stops his feet after initial contact, relying on length but allowing the defender to get the corner or spin inside.
  • Susceptible to speed rushers. Has only average quickness off the snap and doesn't possess the acceleration or arm length to corral defenders once they cross his face.
  • Needs to prove his worth in a straight-ahead running game.

We see him as a quality prospect, that won't fall any further than the middle of the second round.

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
