David Stewart School: Mississippi State
Ht: 6-6.5 Wt: 314 40: 5.25 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Three-year starter who saw action with the
first team as a freshman. Consistently graded
out as Mississippi State's top offensive lineman.
Positives: Hard-working blocker coming off a terrific
senior campaign. Nasty lineman who works to
bury opponents. Stout, anchors at the point and
easily turns defenders off the line. Strong, yet at
the same time intelligent, and works well with
teammates. Effectively uses blocking angles to
protect the quarterback, and at the same time,
drives opponents off the line, opening holes for
the running game. Bends his knees blocking
with leverage, powerful in the upper body and
displays excellent arm extension with the ability
to control defenders once engaged at the point.
Surprising skill pulling across the line of scrimmage
and blocking in motion. Jolts defenders
and explosive at the point.
Negatives: Not light on
his feet, lacks adjustment and exploited by
nimble opponents. Cannot redirect to defenders
on the second level. Marginal blocking range.
Analysis: Looking like a different player as a
senior, Stewart took his game to another level
and is now a prime strong-side tackle prospect
for the next level. Possesses the nasty demeanor
coaches want, yet at the same time, plays
with the intelligence and self-control needed to
be successful in the NFL. Moved himself into the
draft's first day and could quickly find himself as
a starter at the next level.
