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
• 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
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.
