Mike Leach has taken his spread offense to Pullman, and Madison has excelled in the pass protection role; the team threw 664 passes on the year. He showed quick feet and good downfield mobility for his size while starting all 13 games at right tackle in 2017, earning second-team All-Pac-12 honors. He was an honorable mention all-conference pick as a 13-game starter at right tackle as a junior. That was a repeat of the honors he received while starting all 13 games at the right tackle spot the previous year. The Washington native and top 50 guard recruit nationally actually started the first eight games of his redshirt freshman year at the right tackle spot, as well. He did not play in the final four contests of the year as junior Jacob Seydel took over the spot.

Overview
Madison's athletic ability, foot quickness and ability to sustain blocks on the move make him a desirable target for teams who want offensive linemen who can excel in space. However, his lack of anchor in pass protection will likely be targeted by pass rushers looking to for holes to exploit. A move inside to guard could benefit Madison, if he can add strength and play with better knee bend.
Strengths
  • Gets out of his stance and into his work quickly
  • Good athlete who excels as move blocker
  • Gets upfield to lead the charge in screen game
  • Races to get feet into proper position on reach blocks
  • Establishes hand positioning early in rep
  • Won't stop working to get blocks sealed or turned out on run play
  • Light on his feet with a quality mirror
  • Refuses to just give away his edge at the top of the rush
  • Slides feet through contact to help ride edge rushers around the pocket
  • Makes arm extension and locking out a priority
  • Good pace in his kick-slides and would benefit with more quick-sets and fewer lateral sets
  • Reads and react to games up front
Weaknesses
  • Benefits from up-tempo pace and quick passing attack
  • Lacks experience firing off the ball
  • Play strength is average and needs to win with technique and positioning
  • Carries too much weight back in his heels on pass sets and allows speed-to-power rushes to roll him back into the pocket
  • Needs to maintain knee bend
  • Gets too straight legged at contact and can be bounced around
  • May lack desired arm length as NFL tackle
  • Will panic and grab when punch timing goes awry
  • Lack of length and anchor will be continuing concerns for offensive line coaches
