Featured Prospects

Selected by: Oakland Raiders
Round: 2
Pick (Overall): 16 (48)

Pick Analysis: Al Davis keeps it within the family by selecting Wisniewski. As a tough, hard-nosed blocker with strength and power, he gives the team a forceful presence on the interior. His ability to maul defenders will remind some of his uncle (Steve Wisniewski) and help the Raiders maintain their prolific running ways.

Overview

Wisniewski comes from a football family and has the versatility to be a quality backup at the next level. He has great football intelligence, quickly recognizes stunts and blitzes and is rarely caught out of position. However, he lacks the lower body strength to generate a consistent push in the running game and will not thwart the bull rush in the NFL. He played guard early in his career and can line up at all three interior offensive line positions. Wisniewski has the smarts to make up for his lack of strength and will likely be a later round pick.


Strengths

Wisniewski is tall with adequate speed. Knowledgeable lineman that makes quality pre-snap reads and is always in sound position. Effective zone blocker that consistently picks up the right assignment. Slides and mirrors well in pass protection and delivers a good initial punch. Has experience playing both guard and center.

Weaknesses

Lacks the bulk and lower body strength to hold stout against bigger defensive tackles. Has poor footwork and struggles to sustain blocks. Takes poor angles moving to the second level and lacks the lateral agility to consistently make blocks in space. Does not always finish blocks and fails to show a mean streak.

Grade

5.3
