PFF scouting report: Spencer Drango, OG, Baylor


Below is the PFF draft profile for Baylor’s Spencer Drango, 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:

Guard

Stat to know:

Top 10 tackle in the power-5 each of the past two season

Combine Stats:

Height: 6-6
Weight: 315
Arm length: 33 ¾ inches
Hand size: 9 ½ inches
Bench: 30
40-yard dash: 5.27 seconds
Broad jump: 8-4 inches
3-cone drill: 7.88 seconds
20-yard shuttle: 4.66 seconds

What he does best:

— Thick and strong upper body. Can turn defensive linemen’s shoulders when he gets under their pads through sheer power
— Projection to guard is an easy one with how much he pulled. Launched linebackers and defensive linemen alike when he had a clear read and could square them up
— Few better at riding a defensive linemen where they were going. Was very good against one-gap defenses where he wouldn’t give an inch vertically yet could create serious lateral movement
— Two straight years of dominant grading

Biggest concern:

— Awkwardness to his movements. Very top-heavy build. Change of direction ability is poor and if he had to adjust his pull blocks he was whiffing
— Baylor offense was so limited in the block it asked Drango to execute. Downblock after downblock
— A consistent hitch in his giddyup when trying to get out of his stance. Especially apparent when asked to pull
— Terribly late with his hands in pass protection. Shilique Calhoun completely exposed him in last year’s Cotton Bowl

Player Comp:

Brandon Scherff, Washington Redskins. Scherff is a much better athlete, but a lot of the same issues that Scherff had at tackle that necessitated a move inside are apparent in Drango’s game

Bottom line:

Few produced as well as Drango in our system the previous two seasons, but there are obvious limitations to his game. He’ll likely struggle out of the gate, but has the tools to be a competent run blocker in the NFL.
