Evaluation notes

Farrar is a potentially position-versatile offensive line prospect with the requisite size to play tackle or guard at the high-major level.

Played right tackle as a junior for high school team. Big, burly lineman who is a hand full in the run game. Consistently finishes blocks. Plays with a bit of a mean streak. Solid upper-body technique in pass pro.

Can improve lateral mobility and overall flexibility. Sometimes bends at waist rather than knees, but usually plays with good leverage, especially for a 6-5+ prospect.

Well-rounded player with high ceiling as a pass-blocker who will play at the P5 level. - Gabe Brooks
