Rankings: Scout ranks Verhulst as the No. 11 offensive tackle in Texas for the 2017 cycle, as well as No. 79 nationally at his position.
With plenty of height and ample space to grow even larger, Casey Verhulst is an FBS-caliber offensive line prospect whose build best projects to a tackle position at the next level. Verhulst plays LT for one of Texas' largest high schools and competes against quality competition in practice and games. A 6-foot-6, frame is his best attribute. Already a big player, Verhulst possesses a significant amount of space on his frame to add bulk. High ceiling as a pass protector because of his frame potential. Shows fairly good quickness off the ball. At times more of a leaner than a bender, which combined with his great height can at times hurt his leverage consistency. Can improve balance, particularly in kick-slide pass-pro situations. - Gabe Brooks
