Scouting Report: Strengths
- He’ll consistently finish blocks, dropping on defenders when Curtis has them on the ground. Curtis shows good awareness reacting to twists and stunts as a pass protector, and he has the strength to anchor against bigger defensive linemen.
- Made Bruce Feldman's Freak's List - ranked #91. He wrote, "He chose to stay at hometown Chattanooga coming out of high school over FBS offers from Appalachian State, Georgia Southern, MTSU, Ohio, Temple and Western Kentucky. This offseason Curtis has deadlifted 775 pounds, power-cleaned 345, and his body fat was measured at 23.7 percent."
- He will have a chance to develop as a right tackle or possibly inside at guard, where he could be an interesting prospect for a zone-blocking team. If nothing else, that versatility is enough to make him at least a quality reserve.
- A smooth mover and covers a lot of ground, working hard to mirror rushers; agile and keeps his feet moving.
- Curtis flashes power and nastiness in the run game, able to win at the point of attack and athletic enough to get out as a pulling blocker before landing blocks on the move at the second level.
- 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.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- Curtis doesn’t have good enough feet to play left tackle at the next level, and his body type would make for a difficult switch to a guard spot.
- He’s better moving forward than Curtis is retreating as a pass protector, where he often seems to be a bit out of sync.
- Attacks when necessary, though he won't consistently dominate and can lose balance overextending.
- Can struggle to stay engaged, especially on the second level. His hand placement can be sloppy, costing him power.
