Wynn's short, stout, powerful build and mobility make his NFL future at guard, but his versatility has helped him meet the team's need at left tackle. He was a second-team All-American and first-team All-SEC selection in 2017, starting all 15 games on the outside to lead the way for the team's excellent running backs and protect freshman quarterback Jake Fromm. Wynn was a four-star recruit and top-10 guard prospect nationally out of Lakewood High School in St. Petersburg, Florida before joining the Bulldogs. He played in 11 games as a true freshman, starting once as a second tight end. Wynn began his sophomore year at the left guard spot, starting eight games there before moving over one spot to his left for the remaining five games. The transfer of Tyler Catalina from Western Carolina to Georgia forced Wynn to slide back to the left guard spot in 2016, where he started 12 times (missing one game due to injury).

Overview
Wynn is a talented, technically sound block-winner with a demeanor that offensive line coaches will love. His athleticism allows for quick advantages as a run blocker while his hand strength and footwork helps him sustain those advantages into open running lanes. His plus pass protection will be appealing to teams looking for help in that area and he is capable of sliding out to tackle in an emergency. He appears to have the technique and play traits to overcome any concerns about size and could become an early starter.
Strengths
  • Plays with fluidity of movement and desired knee bend throughout rep
  • Initial quickness is above average
  • Gets into blocks with tight footwork and runs feet through contact
  • Stays connected to his blocks and rarely falls off
  • Looks to finish
  • Effective as move blocker and base blocker
  • Takes good angles up to linebacker as backside blocker and has technique and athleticism to reach and secure blocks others may struggle with
  • Offers tackle-level pass technique if bumped inside
  • Has body control and balance and feet to handle counter rush moves
  • Extremely aware against twists and quick to respond
  • Plays with disciplined hand usage keeping them inside opponent's frame in both run and pass
  • Hands are very strong
  • Flashes necessary anchor
  • Has starting experience at both guard and tackle
Weaknesses
  • Is a little lean in his lowers with a high-cut frame
  • Built more like a tackle than a guard, but is packed into a 6-foot-2 frame
  • Will have to prove he can withstand NFL power
  • Could benefit from getting better arm extension into initial punch as interior blocker in NFL
  • May lack necessary pop in his hips to displace 1-gappers who are clogging running lanes
  • Will lose patience and chase on occasion rather than standing his ground and making defenders come to him

"He's what you want from a tackle but he's not even going to come in at 6'3 so that's (stinks). He'll be a good player for a team who wants athletic guards. You might even see a team draft him as a center since he's stronger than a lot of the centers you will see in this draft." - NFC area scout
