Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Hand placement is excellent, and Wypler shows a good understanding of angles when climbing upfield
  • Does a nice job on the second level, moving upfield quickly and showing the flexibility and balance to land blocks in space.
  • Finds defenders with his hands immediately and gets feet moving to engage and sustain.
  • Adequate foot quickness to remain outside. Can get to the second level with surprising agility when adjusting to moving defenders. Underrated athleticism, agility, balance, and even straight-line speed to contribute.
  • In the run game, he plays with a mean streak and does a nice job generating a push at the initial point of attack. Wypler can get outside and does a decent job landing blocks in space.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Will punch at smaller defenders instead of latching on and is more of a mauler than a mover in the running game. Can improve maintaining outside leverage when doubling the nose. Ducks his head and gets too upright, causing him to fall off second-level blocks.
  • Not physically imposing and has average overall strength. Upper body gets over his feet too often and Wypler easily loses his balance.
  • A little raw as a pass protector, looking choppy and unnatural when moving back into his set, often playing too upright.
