Round: 5
Pick (Overall): 38 (169)

Pick Analysis: The Packers continue to add developmental offensive tackles. With starters Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher aging, Green Bay clearly wants to groom some young players as eventual replacements. Newhouse has outstanding measurables, and possesses impressive athleticism given his size, but needs improvement in recognizing blitzes and finishing his blocks.

Overview

Newhouse comes from a strong football family but does not show the kind of instincts and mental awareness than you'd expect from someone with that kind of background. As long as the defensive front plays pretty vanilla in terms of stunts and twists, he shows no hesitations or indecision, but he can be late to react and adjust when he sees something for the first time. He shows good initial quickness and speed but struggles when he has to adjust on the move or react to counter moves. He was a quality starter at left tackle for the past three years at TCU but will probably find a better fit inside at guard at the next level.


Strengths

Marshall is tall enough with a thick build. Has a good first step and the speed to make blocks at the second level. Maintains a wide base and uses his hands to push edge rushers past the pocket. Three-year starter at TCU.

Weaknesses

Lacks the lateral agility to make blocks in space and struggles to get into position after counter moves. Does not consistently recognize stunts and blitzes and misses his blocking assignments too often. Lacks a mean streak and does not always finish blocks.

Grade

2.0
