Mike Erickson School: Nebraska
Ht: 6-3.5 Wt: 305 40: 4.84 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Three-year starter originally used at guard
before moving to left tackle position as a senior.
Positives: Tough, intelligent lineman best in a small
area. Nasty, fights throughout the action and
works to mash opponents. Effectively uses
blocking angles, quickly picks up assignments
and controls opponents once engaged in a
block. Patient in pass protection, displays power
run blocking, and works his hands throughout
the action. Quick kicking out and displays
adequate skills on the second level.
flexibility, adjustment and not light on his feet.
Marginal footwork sliding laterally and exploited
by quick opponents. Stiff in his upper body.
Analysis: Possessing only marginal size and
athletic skills, Erickson is a justifiable prospect
who's fallen under the radar screens in NFL
circles. Struggled at left tackle in Nebraska's
new passing system last season yet a viable
backup guard in the NFL.
