PFF scouting report: Jason Spriggs, OT, Indiana

Here is the PFF draft profile for Indiana tackle Jason Spriggs, which incorporates PFF’s college grades and scouting intel from our team of analysts. To see all of PFF’s 2016 scouting reports, click here

Position fit:

Left or right tackle in any run scheme

Stats to know:

Third- highest pass blocking efficiency among Power-5 left tackles

What he does best:

• Elite level anchor and lower body strength. Great movement when locked in on double teams
• Fantastic athlete that can get out and run with the best of them
• Extended experience running outside zone. Showed ability to control blocks on the move
• Won on 60 percent of his one-on-ones at the Senior Bowl, the highest rate of any tackle

Biggest concern:

• Ducks his head far too often. Too eager to get first punch in and gets himself off balance
• Upper body strength doesn’t match lower body strength and can get his hands swatted away. First punch is often weak
• Indiana offense didn’t ask for a ton of true pass sets

Bottom line:

He’ll be one of the best physical specimen’s to come out of the combine since Lane Johnson, but Spriggs is still more projection than finished project at this point. There is a lot to like in his game though, and there may not be a better frame to work with in the draft. If he can clean up some technical issues he’ll be an above average tackle.

    Great talent. If he gains anywhere from 5-10lbs he will no doubt be one of the elite OT in the NFL.

    • shaunhan murray

      There is always a doubt especially at tackle

  • bill jaffe

    i think he’s the second tackle taken jumping the kid from Notre Dame

  • Bruce Locis

    Best ZBS OT in the draft. No question.

  • Alan Mazz

    Sounds like a Seahawk to me .He has superb athletic traits and had the best long jump at the combine. Seattle put your premium on the long jump as they equate it with explosiveness.

  • Killer boots man

    He is now a packer! Nice pick Ted!

  • Shadowjack1965

    Welcome to the Pack Mr. Spriggs!

  • Tommy Boy

    Let’s hope Campen leaves him alone.
