Scouting Report: Michal Menet – 2016 Offensive Tackle

Offensive lineman don’t have the reputation of being the best athletes on the field, but Michal Menet is an exception to that. The Exeter Township offensive lineman moves well enough to project on the defensive line even if his future is on offense.

He’s got the right amount of nasty to go with solid technique and it’s why he is one of my favorite offensive lineman I have watched so far in this recruiting class.

Scouting Report: E.J. Price – 2016 Offensive Tackle

There are some dudes that can walk into a room and don’t even have to say a word to announce themselves as a football player. I imagine that’s what it must be like for E.J. Price wherever he goes. He looks like an offensive lineman is supposed to look like.

He also has all of the tools to play just like coaches want an offensive lineman to play. That’s what makes him one of the top offensive tackles prospects in the country and why he’s heading to The Opening finals after earning an invite to the big event with a great performance at The Opening regional in Atlanta.

Scouting Report: Michael Jordan – 2016 Offensive Tackle

I don’t know why any parent with the last name Jordan would name their kid Michael (kind of like naming your kid Muhammad if your last name was Ali), but that didn’t deter this one family from Canton, Michigan.

The highly touted offensive tackle recruit Michael Jordan will have to live with hearing “Not that one” every time his name is said or written. Fortunately, no one would ever confuse them based on appearance as this MJ from Plymouth High  is quite a bit bigger than the other one and is much more of a mauling run blocker than a guy who averages 30 a game in hoops.

Scouting Report: Willie Allen – 2016 Offensive Tackle

Special is a word that I think that is thrown around too often when evaluating players, but sometimes its use is warranted when describing a specific skill or trait. To me, it’s special when you see an offensive lineman show an extra edge to his game and want to drive players 30 yards down the field or put them on their butt.

John Curtis offensive tackle Willie Allen has that special trait in him. When you throw in the fact that he is a massive as he is at his age, that’s why he is such a coveted recruit by the top programs in the SEC.

Scouting Report: Ben Bredeson – 2016 Offensive Tackle

This recruiting cycle has some very good blue chip offensive linemen in Big Ten country and Ben Bredeson is right up near the top of the list at the position in the region.

He might be one of the best in the nation. He has the tools and mentality to develop into an outstanding player at multiple positions on the offensive line at the college level.

Scouting Report: David Bolisomi – 2015 Offensive Tackle

There are always prospects that blow up with offers late in the process and David Bolisomi is one of them in this recruiting cycle. The offensive tackle from Denton, Texas went from under the radar to receiving offers from schools like Arizona State, TCU, Oklahoma State, and Texas Tech with that offer list expected to continue to grow.

It’s easy to see why Bolisomi has garnered the attention and why he’ll likely earn more offers before he ultimately decides on a school.

Scouting Report: Patrick Hudson – 2016 Offensive Tackle

There is a misconception amongst people that haven’t watched a lot of Baylor games that think they are a finesse team because they play the spread. That couldn’t be further from the truth. They have been physical upfront under Art Briles and should continue to be by recruiting players like Patrick Hudson.

The offensive tackle from Silsbee, Texas is a massive young man that is a surprisingly good athlete. Briles and the Baylor staff have to be ecstatic that they have a player with his kind of potential already committed for 2016.

Drew Richmond (Ole Miss commit) – senior film review

Now that we are getting deeper into the football season, there is a lot more film to digest on recruits. We get a better chance to see who has made the leap as a senior to an elite prospect and who still needs more work refining their game before they play at the next level.

I had the chance to watch a couple of games on Ole Miss commit Drew Richmond to see how he is progressing this season. Richmond is considered one of the top offensive tackles in this recruiting class and is someone that impressed me with his junior film.

Scouting Report: Liam Eichenberg – 2016 Offensive Tackle

It didn’t take me very long into Liam Eichenberg‘s film to realize that he is going to play left tackle in college and it has nothing to do with him playing left tackle at St. Ignatius (Ohio). It’s just obvious because of his frame and the way a kid his size moves.

He’s already rated as one of the top offensive tackles in the 2016 recruiting class and has the chance to develop into an elite player at the college level.

Scouting Report: Tommy Kraemer – 2016 Offensive Tackle

High school sophomore offensive linemen are interesting to watch. Especially the ones like Tommy Kraemer that already have the size of a college sophomore. You can see them moving and it almost feels like they haven’t quite got their feet under themselves yet and that they aren’t quite used to carrying around their body weight.

That’s the frightening part about it. Kraemer is already really good and can put defenders on their back, but he isn’t even close to how good he will be because he hasn’t quite got the strength to match up with his size yet. Once that comes, it’s going to be a nightmare for anyone who is lined up opposite of him. Kraemer is one of the top offensive tackle prospects in the class of 2016.
