James Lott's Prospect Breakdown

Strengths: Athletic and powerful frame especially in the lower body. Mauler in the run game, comes off with good pad level and uncoils into opponents. Flexible athlete who is normally low man off the snap. Uses powerful lower body and hips to pop into defenders at the point of attack.  Combines his hips, arms and hand extension to turn his man when base blocking. Has excellent power to consistently turn his man when base blocking to sustain and finish. Shows excellent feet and agility as a zone blocker.  Plays pissed off and is highly competitive.  Dominant blocker who wants to impose his will on opponents. Good foot quickness when pass blocking. Uses quick feet and loose hips to turn and scramble when he gets beat. Has improved his pass blocking ability over the last year. Can play both tackle positions and OG.

Bottom Line: Was the lone junior invited to The Opening Finals in 2019. Won Offensive Line MVP.

Grade: 9.25
