Scout.com Evaluation

Kimble played on an accomplished and D1 heavy offensive line his junior season and he stood out. Right now he is a lean offensive tackle that will need to some add weight and mass once he arrives on the next level. He has pretty good feet and shows good balance an quickness in pass protection. He has pretty quick hands. As a run blocker, he can stay on his blocks, drive his man back, and he has shown he likes to finish off blocks. - Greg Powers, National Recruiting Analyst
