Vederian Lowe OT Illinois Scouting Report

Position rank: 28
40-yard dash time: 5.27-seconds
Height: 6-6, Weight: 320 lbs
Strengths
  • Has a naturally wide base, thickly build and good length. Long legs to cover a lot of ground with his initial kick slide. Has the quickness to set up quickly with enough lateral shuffle to mirror and mobility to get to the second level.
  • Moves well and squares to finish on the move. Better anchor than his height suggests and capable of absorbing a punch and recovering quickly.
  • Best on the outside because of his height and athleticism, but is capable of blocking on the move.
  • Best asset is his strength and disposition as a run blocker. Gives a strong initial punch. Plays with good leverage bends at the knees and sees what he's hitting, showing the ability to roll his hips into the defender and drive him off the line of scrimmage.
  • Effective in space and usually drops his hips to get leverage and sustain against shorter defenders.
Weaknesses
  • 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.
  • Has inconsistent footwork and body positioning and needs to improve his blocking angles.
  • Stops his feet after initial contact, relying on length but allowing defender to get the corner or spin inside.
  • Will punch at smaller defenders instead of latching on and is more of a mauler than mover in the running game. Can improve maintaining outside leverage when doubling the nose. Ducks his head and gets too upright, causing him to fall off second-level blocks.
  • 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.
