Analysis

Strengths

Has a low center of gravity and maintains leverage throughout snap. Looks to jolt offensive linemen with post-snap punch. Won't just allow himself to be blocked against the run -- fights to get off the block and make a play. Has good foot quickness on the interior. Sees it, thumps with his punch, shuffles and mirrors the ball carrier. Possesses good strength in his hands and can hold his ground against double teams. Can change directions well and gets off the snap quickly.

Weaknesses

Short levers for an interior player. Generally ineffective as interior rusher. Needs to improve hand usage in pass rush and learn to threaten the edge of the guard. Gets fewer effort sacks than he should. Turns motor off when he senses his pass rush is stalled. Will pursue run down the line, but his secondary pursuit can be lazy and lackluster. Inconsistent tackle quality. Doesn't disengage quickly enough to make plays on the other side of the line.

Draft Projection

Round 7 or priority free agent

Bottom Line

Surratt's effort is good inside the tackle box and he's tough at the point of attack, but he won't impress with production or game-changing plays. The twitch and traits are very average, but he can punch in and out and give a team a solid day's work. He's a rotational lineman with an ability to hit spot starts in case of injury.
