Draft Analysis:

"Leno is described as a high-cut guy with a short torso and long legs. His best NFL position is probably guard rather than tackle." -- Gil Brandt

  • 6'4" Height
  • 34 3/8" Arm Length
  • 303LBS. Weight
  • 10 1/8" Hands


High school offensive tackle-defensive end out Oakland, Calif., where he also lettered in basketball. Redshirted in 2009. Appeared in 10 games as a reserve in 2010. Started all 13 games at right tackle in 2011. Started all 26 games at left tackle 2012-13.



Outstanding arm length. Solid base in pass protection and can bump, steer and mirror. Understands fit and positioning. Can work up to the second level with ease. Flashes pop in his punch. Very durable, experienced three-year starter.


Lacks substance in pass protection and can be moved off a spot and walked back to the quarterback. Tends to bend at the waist, overextend and lose positioning -- average recovery speed. Carries his hands too low and does not shoot them with violence. Is stressed by speed and struggles to cut off the rush. Does not play strong and catches too much.

Draft Projection

Rounds 5-6

Bottom Line

Long-armed, soft-bodied college left tackle most ideally suited for a role as a versatile, swing backup in a zone-blocking scheme. Has not learned how to translate his athletic ability and explosion to the field, yet possesses enough length, agility and untapped talent to find a role for a patient offensive line coach. Could warrant interest inside as a guard or center where he has help on each side. Similar to Packers OT Marshall Newhouse.
