Draft Scouting Report: D'Brickashaw Ferguson

Scouting D'Brickashaw Ferguson\OT\Virginia

Full Name: D'Brickashaw Ferguson         School: Virginia

Ht: 6-4.5     Wt: 290     40: 5.31     Yr: 4Sr

Pos: Athletic blocker who stands out in pass protection. Fluid moving about the field, plays with forward lean and easily anchors at the point of attack. Slides his feet in space, adjusts to oncoming defenders and displays great punch with his hands. Quick out to the second level and redirects to linebackers, removing them from the action. Explosive and good initial strength at the point run blocking.

Neg: Not overly instinctive. Lunges into blocks which adversely effects his balance. Marginal run blocker does not finish.

Analysis: Naturally gifted, Ferguson is a terrific athlete that can develop into a dominant left tackle at the next level. Needs to improve his run blocking strength and finer details of the position but worth an early selection next April.
