Overview

Pinkston is deceptively athletic and has the football intelligence to make an NFL roster. He does not impress on the hoof, but he understands blocking schemes and very rarely misses his assignment. He also possesses quick feet and the lateral agility to hold up against athletic pass rushers and flashes the ability to generate a good push in the running game. He does not show a fierce competitiveness on or off the field and he appears to be an underachiever. Overall, Pinkston knows the game of football and has enough talent to develop into a quality reserve tackle. He is likely a second day pick.


Strengths

Pinkston has adequate size and excellent instincts. Quickly recognizes stunts and blitzes and is always in sound position. Sets quickly, plays with a wide base, and flashes the ability to sink his hips to thwart the bull rush. Athletic enough to mirror edge rushers and to make blocks in the second level.

Weaknesses

On the shorter side with a soft body. Lacks a powerful punch and takes too many false steps in pass pro. Falls off blocks at times in the running game. Takes poor initial angles and struggles to get sound hand placement. Does not always finish blocks and lacks a mean streak. Has durability concerns.

Grade

4.7
