20-yard short shuttle: 4.62 seconds
Three-cone drill: 7.37 seconds



Functional athleticism to play on the left side. Releases into space and can hit moving targets in the screen game. Technically sound pass sets. Keeps weight on inside foot and hands in ready position. Very good at sliding feet and mirroring pass rushers. Keeps his hands inside. Jabs pass-pro punch and then hides hands from defender when not engaged. Frame still has room for more weight. Good recognition of twists. Finishes his blocks. Plays to whistle and flashes nasty. Able to make back-side cuts.


Needs work as a run blocker. Inconsistent hand usage in run game. Gets to second level but doesn't always have a game plan once he gets there. Needs to unleash power in hands. Lets athletic rushers get into him without getting arm extension. Will lean at contact in pass pro, creating potential balance problems. Gets jostled and knocked off balance. Core strength issues must be monitored. Short arms for a player his height. Lacks necessary sand to hold his ground when asked to block laterally.

Bottom Line

Evaluators are all over the map on Sambrailo, but I feel like he is an interesting litmus-test player this season. While the feet and movement are pluses, his functional strength could be a hindrance to NFL success. Sambrailo must develop more anchor and power to go with his athleticism or he will get taken advantage of by bull-rushers and edge-setters.
