Loadholt is a huge, monstrous tackle who can shed the opposition away with ease. He stays square to the opposition, has good technique and uses his brute strength to his advantage to knock defenders off their rush. He's a strong run-blocker who drives the opposition off the line and finishes his blocks until the whistle blows.

Adam Caplan's Flash Analysis Most scouts felt he didn't have good enough feet to play on the left side, but Loadholt will play right tackle this season. He should be able to win the starting job on that side and should prove to be an upgrade there.
