Seaver Myers Player Profile
Position: Offensive Line
Size: 6-6, 290
High School: Friendswood
Hometown: Friendswood, Texas
Recruitment: Out of high school, Myers was the 77th ranked player in the state of Texas and was a three-star Scout prospect. By signing with SMU, Myers turned down offers from Texas A&M, Louisville, Colorado, Houston, Iowa State and Rice among others. Myers also threw the shot and discus, and played baseball.
2013 Recap: After injuring his hand in the first game of 2012, Myers was awarded a medical redshirt and sat out the remainder of the season. In 2013, offensive line coach Wes Suan had big plans for Myers, but he saw playing time in just three of the first five games and struggled all season long despite his promising upside.
Myers was given opportunities to live up to his hype, but was consistently inconsistent and underperformed both in run blocking and pass protection.
2014 Outlook: In 2013 the SMU offensive line was anything but consistent. With only three returning starting linemen, Myers, now in his third year in the program, will be given another chance to prove he’s worthy of a starting guard spot.
Myers has the size and the talent to be a starter, but his success will depend on if he is willing to put in the work in the film room and on the practice field. The Friendswood native will likely start the season at the top of the depth chart, but he could easily drop down if he fails to perform.
One of the offensive line’s biggest problems last year was they never found a consistent group that performed on a regular basis, so there was no familiarity with each other. With three returning starters, and both Myers and Daniel McCarty having seen some playing time in 2013, this group of projected starters should perform better.
