Draft Profile: Bio
O'Cyrus Torrence from St. Helena College and Career Academy High School was rated a 3-star recruit by ESPN and handed a similar 3-star grade by 247 Sports. Following high school, Torrence opted to stay local and join the Ragin’ Cajuns despite having offers from an array of big schools.

In 2019 as a freshman Torrence started right away and saw action in 14 games and played a total of 859 snaps for the Cajuns. He allowed 10 QB hurries, no QB hits, and not a single sack while playing most of his snaps at left guard.

As a sophomore in 2020 he played in 11 games and a total of 701 snaps. He conceded just 2 QB hurries, no QB hits, and no sacks while playing at right guard.

In 2021 as a junior Torrence saw action in 12 games and totaled 807 snaps. He gave up 4 QB hurries, one QB hit, and no sacks while playing most of his snaps at right guard.

After season's end Torrence looking for a step-up in competition transferred to Florida where as a senior Torrence saw action in 11 games and played a total of 698 snaps for the Gators. He allowed a solid 8 QB hurries, no QB hits, and once again no sacks while playing at right guard.

Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Torrence is a huge guard prospect at 6-5 347lbs - he's well proportioned, equally well balanced, and super strong
  • Torrence is the only four-year starter we have ever scouted that has never surrendered a single sack during his entire career. What makes this even more special is the fact he has played over 3000 snaps!
  • Dominates in the run game - we've seen him rag doll defenders multiple times - crazy raw power
  • He's a mauler and power driver reminiscent of Larry Allen (Cowboy/49er)
  • Has strong hands and is able to consistently under the pads of rushers and shepherd them aside in pass protection
  • Surprising lateral quickness given his immense size
  • He’s extremely light on his feet for a 300-pounder, a natural knee-bender who plays with balance and leverage
  • Hand placement is excellent, and Torrence shows a good understanding of angles when climbing upfield
  • Confident in his abilities - could have stayed in Lousiana but wanted to showcase his talents at a higher level
  • Has experience at both guard spots - regarded as a right guard prospect but was elite as a freshman when playing on the left.
  • Sells trap block and can turn to seal. Fluid getting to and adjusting at the second level.
  • As a run blocker he's the best in the class, as a pass protector he's still excellent and plays with a wide base and absorbs pressure from interior rushers with ease
  • Torrence does a nice job working with teammates to build the pocket, anchoring against bull rushers, and displaying good awareness against stunts and twists
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Can be susceptible to speed rushers. Has only good quickness off the snap and doesn't possess the acceleration to corral defenders once they cross his face
  • Often gets too high in his sets, sacrificing some of his power, and Torrence doesn’t always show great coordination between his upper and lower body when sliding back in pass protection.
  • Torrence has good overall vision, however, he sometimes misses the block in a scrum. Sometimes a little to pick up the blitz
  • He’s often too mechanical as a pass protector, oversetting and getting beat inside
Scouting Report: Summary
Torrence is a ridiculous guard prospect, he's a man mountain with off-the-scale power as a drive blocker and well-developed skills as a pass protector. We assumed that once he transferred to Florida he'd be unable to reproduce his play at the next level, we were seriously wrong as he continued to dominate as a run blocker while not allowing a single sack in pass protection.

Torrence is an outstanding pro prospect who will quickly make an impact in the pro game and ultimately we see him as showing pro-bowl potential. It's a shame he wasn't played at tackle in college (given his measurables) as he'd likely be viewed as a top-five selection. As a guard we still expect him to be an easy first-round selection in the 2023 NFL Draft.

O'Cyrus Torrence percentiles vs other Offensive Guards (NFL Combine historically - higher value represents better perfomance)

Update - 04/21/2023
Really improved his stock at the Senior Bowl - where he showed outstanding ability and overall technique in pass protection as well as the predicted dominance in the run game. Also, he managed to play equally well at both guard spots.

Didn't perform as hoped at the combine as he posted a very average forty, a vertical in only the 9th percentile, and his upper body strength as demonstrated by the bench press was in the 31st percentile. it won't drop him too far but it will raise a few eyebrows.

*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.
