Scouting Report: Strengths
- Exhibits good patience in pass protection, sitting back in his set rather than leaning and lunging.
- Consistently lands blocks at the second level, and Hinton finishes strong. As a pass protector, he has violent, heavy hands. Along with a strong initial punch, he has the hand strength to grip and redirect pass rushers.
- Attacks his man, playing with a wide base and the lateral agility to mirror, sustain and shuffle to help inside. Has the size, strength and quick feet to be effective as a position run-blocker.
- Is effective when asked to pull, showing the agility, speed, and overall range to get out as a lead blocker, where he locates defenders and shows the ability to adjust and land blocks against linebackers.
- An agile mover who puts his length to good use, using his hands aggressively and landing solid initial punches. Hinton can move to the second level as a run blocker, with the coordination and balance to hit moving targets.
- If a scout were to draw up a starting NFL left tackle, the picture may look like a lot like Adams. His height, length and athletic build are prototypical for the position that helps protect the blind side of ultra-important starting quarterbacks.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
- He’ll have trouble with elite quickness at the next level.
- Can be a tick slow at the snap when asked to pass protect, and at times Hinton looks hesitant when facing stunts and twists.
- Hinton often plays too high, allowing speed-to-power rushers to knock him back and off balance. Hinton needs to get much better with his hand use.
