Draft Analysis:

Ted Thompson tends to select college bookends and experimenting with them inside. That's likely Amichia's destiny in Green Bay. --Mark Dulgerian

Analysis

Strengths

Athletic with good foot quickness. Has flexibility to play at a variety of positions along the offensive line. Smooth climber up to second level and can adjust his track in space. Above average initial quickness. Ran impressive 4.95-second 40 at his pro day. Displayed combination of strength (33 reps) and explosiveness (33.5 vertical jump) when testing. Plus body control and balance in his pass sets mean he could see some reps at tackle on NFL level. Core strength appears to be good for his average weight.

Weaknesses

Was substantially lighter in the spring and will have to prove he can keep weight on while in the NFL. Has a tendency to attack down blocks and second level targets with hands wide. Tends to grab and hold rather than strike and secure when looking to seal blocks. Redirect power appears to be average.

Bottom Line

Amichia slipped through the draft cracks due to his weight being in the low 280s at his pro day last spring. The tape shows an athletic lineman with decent length who is able to get to tough angles on the move, drop and anchor when challenged with power. He lacks desired mass but has a shot to make the roster if he can keep his weight up and prove he can play multiple positions.
