Pick Analysis: The Dolphins opt for a developmental offensive tackle to bolster their depth along the line. Jerry has good size and strength, while possessing the ideal skill set to move inside to guard. With his versatility and talent, Jerry could develop into a solid contributor in time.

Overview

Jerry is a massive lineman that moved to tackle for his senior year at "Ole Miss" but will need to move back inside to guard for the next level. He can engulf and overpower opponents once he gets his hands on them but can also struggle against speed when playing on the edge. He is not a natural knee bender and tends to let his pad level get too high on a lot of blocks. He is more of a mauler and brawler than an explosive blocker and knocks opponents off the ball. He could stand to lose some weight if he wants to become a full-time player at the next level.


Strengths

Jerry possesses great size and rare bulk for an offensive lineman. Has long arms, making him even more difficult for pass rushers to navigate around. Has really good natural strength. Can be an effective run blocker due to size. Has some impressive short area quickness for a big man.

Weaknesses

Lacks adequate agility and lateral range making him susceptible to a speed/quick pass rusher with counter moves. Struggles blocking in the open field. Lacks the endurance to be consistently dominant during long drives. Needs to watch his pad level. Does not physically dominate as much as we’d like to see given his size.

Grade

7.2
