Pick Analysis: The Bills grab an offensive tackle to address their void at the position with the selection of Ed Wang. Though he remains a bit of a project, Wang gives the Bills an athletic blocker capable of developing into solid left tackle in a few years.

Overview

Wang is a second generation Chinese-American whose parents were Olympians for the Chinese Olympic team in the ‘70s. He is a starting left tackle for a major college program and is still learning the finer points of playing on the offensive line after moving from the tight end position in 2006. He has good initial quickness as well as downfield speed but is not a natural knee bender and tends to let his pad level get too high. He can be inconsistent in his blocking angles and does not finish his blocks off as well as you’d like.


Strengths

Wang has great size and bulk. Two year starter at left tackle that does a good job of locking his arms out and riding rushers past the pocket. Has great speed and foot quickness which helps him set quickly. Changes direction well.

Weaknesses

Too quick to help out guards when not engaged. Does not have the lower body strength to consistently drive defenders off the ball. Stands up too tall and takes too many false steps. Does not play with enough of an edge and finish blocks.

Grade

3.7
