Broaddus Breakdown (viewed Boise State, Florida and LSU games): Was the starter at left tackle for the Bulldogs in 2011 but has also made some starts at guard, which is where he is projected to play in the NFL. … The first thing you notice about him is his massive size. He is every bit of 345 pounds but does not move like a player that is that heavy. … Shows nice initial quickness out of his stance. Is light on his feet and really does a nice job of sliding and shuffling. … Has good body control when he becomes engaged with his man. Good lateral ability. Was able to adjust well to the twist and handle the games up front. Did not do a good enough job of this in the Boise game, and if this was your only shot to study him you would not have drafted him. But as the season wore on, he got better on his adjustments. Didn’t look like a natural bender early, but later you see him playing with a better base. … Is a powerful man in the way he uses his hands to punch the defender. There is some shock in his punch. … There is no way to bull-rush him, but he has the footwork keep pass-rushers from attacking him on the corner. Did give up a sack on a quick inside pressure by Barkevious Mingo of LSU, and as mentioned, had some problems against Boise. … Size and feet help him in the running game. Can get push when he just fires off the ball. Just engulfs his man. … Can make the reach and cut-off blocks. Always looking to make the second block. Can adjust to take his man down inside. Can get push when he is asked to make the down block. Is good in a tight area. … Had his troubles against Boise when he pulled and didn’t do a good enough job of hitting his target. Was late off the ball and tiptoed on the cut-off block, as well, in this game, but you didn’t see any of that in the other two games. … Can’t tell you how impressive he was being that large and moving the way he did at left tackle playing against SEC rushers. Will be better suited to play inside, but if he had to play right tackle in a pinch, it would not be that difficult for him. … Will be the second guard off the board in this draft behind David DeCastro.
