Comparison

Justin Skule San Francisco 49ers

Tall, long, well-proportioned offensive tackle prospect with an athletic body type that will add quality weight on the next level. High end pass protection capabilities. Good feet and balance. Patient. Trusts his length and athleticism. Shows some flashes of finishing mentality. Has skip-pull capability. Fits best in a zone scheme. Can run and locate second level defenders. Needs to show better play strength and punch. Coordinated but not a rare athlete. Passive at the point of attack. Multi-sport athlete with the body type to develop into an impact Power Five starter. Traits and background suggest mid to late-round NFL Draft upside.
