Waldron is an NFL prospect from Big Sky member Portland State, making a name for himself through speed and athletic ability. Though he is somewhat undersized, Waldron has been working on getting stronger, and his ability to anchor no longer seems to be a weakness. He is an extremely smart player.
A raw player, Waldron plays well in space and delivers a good blow when sustaining on his man. He bends well and uses polished technique despite his level of competition. Flexibility is the key to his game, and he is able to sit well in his set. He can recover when beat and has the ankle flexibility to torque himself around well when a defender gets a step on him.
Waldron has not blocked top-level, powerful competition at Portland State. He will have an adjustment period, and it remains to be seen whether he can position himself and sustain on blocks in the run and pass game at the next level.
Future Hall of Famer
A once-in-a-generation type prospect who could change how his position is played
An impact player with the ability/intangibles to become a Pro Bowl player. Expect to start immediately except in a unique situation (i.e. behind a veteran starter).
A quality player who will contribute to the team early on and is expected to develop into a starter. A reliable player who brings value to the position.
A prospect with the ability to make team as a backup/role player. Needs to be a special teams contributor at applicable positions. Players in the high range of this category might have long-term potential.
A player with solid measurables, intangibles, college achievements, or a developing skill that warrants an opportunity in an NFL camp. In the right situation, he could earn a place on a 53-man roster, but most likely will be a practice squad player or a camp body.
