Ryan Van Demark OL Connecticut Scouting Report

Position rank: 25
40-yard dash time: 5.34-seconds
Height: 6-5, Weight: 302 lbs
Strengths
  • 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.
  • Plays with appropriate wide base and intelligence, instincts and agility to seal the edge. Aggressive extending with power to punch and looks comfortable in space.
  • Above-average football smarts and general intelligence. Plays with a nasty streak. Solid character and work ethic.
  • Fundamentally sound and understands blocking angles, using body positioning to his advantage. Disciplined awareness and good intelligence.
  • Lone concern is handling the superquick NFL edge rusher. Foot speed and quickness are very good, but not elite.
Weaknesses
  • Attacks when necessary, though he won't consistently dominate and can lose balance overextending.
  • 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.
  • Susceptible to speed rushers. Has only average quickness off the snap and doesn't possess the acceleration or arm length to corral defenders once they cross his face.
  • Needs to prove his worth in a straight-ahead running game.
  • Isn't an elite quick-twitch blocker and his height causes him to be out-quicked. Leaks inside pressure when his technique gets sloppy.
