I seems to me that OL are notoriously tough to evaluate and project. Below is a laundry list of evaluation points I can think of. I'm interested in hearing opinions on: what's the most important, what doesn't matter so much, what else do you look for, do the camps matter as much as the film (or more), how do you distinguish between similarly-ranked OL recruits. Some factors I would think come in: A. From the film - Quickness off the line - Bend of knees/body, staying low/not standing up off the ball - Initial punch - Footwork - Handwork - Getting to the 2nd level to block LBs or DBs - Power drive-blocking / pancaking - Picking up the blitz - Blocking the right person - Pulling - Lateral slide - Double teaming - Meanness - Level of competition B. Camp performance C. Physical stats - Height - Weight - Armspan - Bench - Squat - 40 yd dash - 20 yd dash - Shuttle - Body fat - Flexibility - Endurance/conditioning - Speed for his size - Forearm measurements D. Projected physical stats - Not "maxed out" yet body and frame - Young for his grade - Hasn't benefited yet from good weight training - Hasn't played football for many years Your thoughts?
