Overview

Arkin's an experienced, durable offensive guard prospect with the intelligence, work-ethic and toughness to make it in the league as a reserve and possibly a starter down the line. Improving his overall technique as a pass and run blocker would go a lot way in moving him up a depth chart. Needs to do a better job with his hands, sink his hips more and watch his pad level. Displays good awareness. Has the killer instinct that can't be taught and we don't expect him to be afraid of the jump in competition.

Analysis

Strengths

Arkin has a mean streak. Plays angry and always finishes his blocks but still has a cool head, helps out in blitz pickup when free, and isn't baited by defensive line play. Legs are always driving while run blocking and gets some movement. Can take on the bull rush.

Weaknesses

Pass blocking technique needs improvement. Doesn't sink his hips and hand play is a bit sloppy. Quicker, athletic defensive tackles can beat him laterally. Doesn't have great burst off the ball, needs to watch his pad level and can lean and lunge. Footwork out in space is only adequate.
