Scouting Report: Strengths
  • A stout, powerful interior blocker whose game is built on toughness and power, displays impressive movement skills as well.
  • Does a nice job on the second level, moving upfield quickly and showing the flexibility and balance to land blocks in space.
  • He’s very good in the phone booth, firing off the line and playing with good leverage early in the down.
  • Dips shoulder and moves his feet to get outside leverage when needed. Strong and low coming out of his stance, effective in short-yardage situations.
  • Has good footwork and technique. Balanced and agile pass protection set with excellent hand placement.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Sometimes Downing simply gets too impatient to sit back in his set, reaching and lunging and generally playing with poor balance.
  • Doesn’t display the agility and speed to effectively get around as a pulling guard. Downing generally struggles in space, and he will have a tough time consistently landing blocks on the second level
  • He’s shaky as a pass protector, which is troublesome for the next level. Downing often plays too high with an inconsistent kick slide.
  • Has some limitations in pass protection. Because his length is not ideal for a tackle spot, he might have to move inside.

*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.
