Corbett struggled to stay on the field in high school due to knee injuries, but his senior year was good enough to earn walk-on interest from his hometown University of Nevada. After redshirting in 2013, he stepped in to start 12 games at left tackle, taking over for second-round NFL Draft pick Joel Bitonio. Corbett was named a team captain as a sophomore in 2015 and garnered honorable mention All-Mountain West honors after starting every game at left tackle. Corbett started every game at left tackle again (though like Bitonio, his NFL future is as a hard-nosed but athletic guard) as a junior, playing well enough to gain second-team all-conference from league coaches. Corbett's brother, Garrett, played on the offensive line at San Diego State.

Overview
Corbett won't blow you away with any of his measurables or play traits, but he's solid in most areas. Corbett is definitely sharp enough to move inside to guard or even center and has good technique, but his average to below average play strength and lack of length may be a concern. He has the size and talent to compete for a guard/center spot early on, but he may elevate above an average starter during his career.
Strengths
  • Fires hands with force and purpose in both run game and in pass protection
  • Initial punch is meant to send a message
  • Above average football intelligence
  • Understands his job and plays with good instincts and awareness against twists
  • Makes assignment adjustments quickly when faced with late, pre-snap movement by defenders
  • Plays with adequate lateral quickness and can compete in gaining proper positioning as move blocker
  • Executes quality cut blocks
  • Rarely panics with his feet when forced into recovery mode
  • Usually gets to his work-up targets as combo blocker
  • Adequate hand placement in pass pro
  • Considered a team leader and determined worker
  • Went from walk-on to four-year starter
Weaknesses
  • Has only played tackle at Nevada and will have to prove he can make adjustment inside to guard
  • Lacks quality leverage and leg drive and may struggle to displace strong, interior lineman as base blocker
  • Allows defenders to slip out of his grasp when his hands placement falters
  • Hand strength and upper body power could fall below the mark needed for quality recovery against NFL power
  • Can be a tick late in redirecting his weight against counters
  • Core strength needs work
  • Struggles to maintain body control against quality stack and shed edge defenders
