Comparison

Mike McGlinchey San Francisco 49ers

Ideal frame and length to be cornerstone left tackle early in his career. Elite athleticism for frame size. Strong genes with NFL father (Todd Rucci) and brother (Hayden Rucci) at Wisconsin. Well drilled with strong footwork and hand placement. Bends well and fires off well at the snap. Can gain leverage on much smaller players. Initial punch is strong and accurate. Is strong and physical at point of attack. Excellent foot speed and plays balanced. Often mauls high school defensive lineman. Remains engaged and easily turns defender to create running lane. Can scrape and get to second level and lead on screen. Is patient in base with pass pro, which is when initial punch shows. Length and lateral movement ability make him hard to beat around edge. Needs to continue to fine-tune his technique and continue to build upper body strength. Can be dominant offensive lineman on title-contending team. First round draft ability with top 10 potential.
