Pick Analysis: The Bills just picked Iowa OT Kyle Calloway. He's a right tackle, who may be able to kick inside. He's well-coached, tough, but not very athletic. He has to beat you with technique, because he has very average feet.

Overview

Calloway is another in a long line of Iowa linemen that should have a long career in the NFL. He is not the elite athlete that Gallery or Steinbach were but he has enough initial quickness to get out to pick up the edge rusher. He has excellent hand use and will consistently work to finish his blocks off and has a bit of a nasty temperament on the field. Enough of a knee bender to stay under his pads and will bring his feet with him to sustain and redirect blocks with movement. While he has played tackle on both sides as well as some at guard his best position is probably going to be on the right side in the NFL.


Strengths

At nearly 6'7" and 315 pounds Calloway has great length and bulk. Uses his hands very well and possesses good overall technique. Shows natural feel for the game and proper footwork gives him good leverage. Versatile enough to play many positions.

Weaknesses

Struggles with lateral range and can be exposed by speed rushers. Like other tall players he can be a bit top heavy at times and lose leverage. Does not have the athleticism to be effective blocking in space.

Grade

5.4
