Overview

Black has been a very productive left tackle for one of the best programs in the country for the past four years and understands how to get the job done. He relies more on strength and raw power than he does foot agility and lateral range. He is a decent knee bender and does a good job of keeping his pad level down. Once he gets his hands on opponents it is generally all over save for the shouting. He does not back down from a challenge but could show a bit more intensity and nastiness in his blocking. While Black lacks the premier lateral quickness and range to play on the left side at the next level he should handle the move to the right side with little difficulty.

Analysis

Strengths

Wide-bodied and tall enough. Strong at the point of attack. Four year starter who knows how to pick up blitzes and stunts. Takes proper angles in the running game and uses his hands well in pass protection. Finishes his blocks and can be dominant working in limited space.

Weaknesses

Needs to lower his body fat and add more good bulk. Has poor straight line speed even for his size. Only possesses adequate initial quickness which limits his effectiveness against edge rushers. Lacks lateral quickness and range to match up against more athletic defensive lineman.
