Little and Oklahoma junior LT Bobby Evans (along with QB Kyler Murray) were on the same high school team in Allen, Texas, and both now have NFL futures. Little was a top five recruit regardless of position in 2016 and a second-team All-American after his senior season at Allen, which won a mythical national title in 2014. He was a Freshman All-American and SEC All-Freshman squad honoree in his first year on campus, playing in all 12 games and starting the final five games at left tackle. League coaches voted him second-team All-SEC after 12 starts at left tackle in 2017. He was a first-team all-conference selection his junior year after starting all 12 games at left tackle once again, fulfilling his promise as a top-level NFL prospect.

Overview
Little possesses the important combination of size, length and quickness as a prototypical left tackle prospect. While he wasn't asked to do it much in 2018, he has the athletic ability to handle zone-blocking duties, which could suit his skill-set more than a physical rush attack. Little is a natural bender with good feet and pepper in his punch as blind-side protector, but his average anchor and inconsistent body control create some concern. He will be an early starter at left tackle, but needs to improve his strength and eliminate his tendency to lean in order to reach the potential his physical and athletic traits offer.
Strengths
  • Football bloodlines with his father
  • Loose lower body and natural bender
  • Athletic ability prevents scheme limitations

  • Ability to adjust blocks to moving linebackers
  • Lateral quickness to gain interior block positioning
  • Plenty of pass-slide quickness to handle edge runners
  • Punch-ready with his hands
  • Rapid right-left-right combinations to dissuade hand fighters
  • Wide base and basketball feet to sustain his mirror
  • Captures and runs B-gap slants/blitzes out of the picture
  • Above-average agility for recovery blocks in the pocket
Weaknesses
  • Needs to work on core power and upper body development
  • Lacks force and power in down block
  • Too many inefficiencies in movements as run blocker
  • Initial hand strike as run blocker lacks tempo and pace
  • Waist bend with nose past toes at point of attack
  • Leaves feet behind after contact
  • Hand strength is very average
  • Races to predetermined set points
  • Impatient and chases rushers rather than waiting back
  • Gets bounced back into pocket by early rush charge
  • Below-average body control in recovery movements
