Prospect Profile: Kyle Eckel

TFY gives us a scouting report on Midshipmen Kyle Eckel. Eckel ran for over 1,062 as a senior in helping lead the Mids to a bowl victory

Kyle Eckel School: Navy
Ht: 5-10.5 Wt: 237 40: 4.88 Year: 4Sr

Bio: Three year starter who posted 211/1,062/11 as a senior after career numbers of 236/1,249/10 the prior year.

Positives: Hard working lead blocker with the ability to handle the ball. Quick out of his stance, explodes into blocks and effectively uses body positioning to seal defenders from the play. Plays faster than his forty time and creates space as a lead blocker. Gives top effort until the whistle blows.

Negatives: Marginal speed for the next level. Limited skills as a pass catcher.

Analysis: A tough as nails competitor, Eckel makes the most of his abilities yet has marginal upside for the next level. Could eventually develop into a solid blocker once he fills out his frame and improves his playing strength. Top Stories
