Nate Brown OL Nevada Draft Profile

Strengths
  • Has smooth lateral movement skills with good foot quickness. First off the snap and sets quickly. Aggressive and extends his arms into contact, delivering a sharp punch.
  • Anchors against larger defenders in the middle; resets hands to maintain distance. Athletic enough to help on nose tackle then pick up twist or late blitzer. Mirrors quick interior rushers. Looks to help the center when uncovered.
  • Moves well and squares to finish on the move. Better anchor than his height suggests and capable of absorbing a punch and recovering quickly.
  • 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.
  • Gets everything out of his adequate size and frame with good length. Added bulk to his frame and flashes functional strength to get a good push in the run game.
Weaknesses
  • Not a natural knee-bender and gets too upright. Needs to play with better leverage and stay balanced through contact.
  • A short-area blocker with limited range and doesn't consistently get to the second level. Will play undisciplined at times, especially in space. Lacks a finishing attitude.
  • Drops his head too often on contact, which causes problems against swim moves.
  • Adequate initial burst should be far better and isn't good enough to consistently hold out elite pass rushers.
  • Lacks lateral agility, flexibility and footwork to start on the outside in the NFL.
