Marcus Cannon   #61 OT

Height: 6-6   Weight: 335   Age: 30

Born: 5/6/1988 Quanah , TX

College: Texas Christian

Experience: 8th season

High School: Odessa HS [TX]





Draft 2011

Pick No.138

Selected By: New England Patriots

Round: 5

Pick (Overall): 7 (138)

Pick Analysis: Cannon is a big boy with sneaky athleticism that could develop into a starting right tackle at the next level. He shows good initial quickness and can really push around defenders once he gets his hands on them. He moves well enough to mirror defenders in pass protection and shows the ability to pursue moving targets in the second level on run plays. The biggest concern is his inability to consistently recognize blocking assignments and he gets beat far too often on stunts and blitzes. If he can improve his instincts and understanding of the game he could be a force and he will likely be a second day pick.
