NFL Draft Scouting Report: Rashad Butler

Rashad Butler/G/Miami-Fl

Full Name: Rashad Butler        School: Miami-Fl

Ht: 6-5      Wt: 290      40: 5.21     Yr: 5Sr

Pos: Collegiate tackle who projects to go guard.  Bends knees blocking with leverage, quick off the snap and explosive at the point.  Strong, always looking for someone to hit and works well with teammates.  Immediately sets up in pass protection, extends hands into opponents and stays square.  Solid position blocker.  Keeps feet moving throughout the action and holds his ground.

Neg: Lacks adjustment and does not block with balance.  Does more stepping out then sliding off the edge.  Must make better use of blocking angles.  Bends at the waist.

Analysis: A prospect with growth potential who flashes ability, Butler has upside for the next level.  Must significantly improve his playing strength yet has the tools to develop into a back-up at the next level.
