Crosby is a big-bodied tackle prospect with a strong anchor and a mean streak as a run blocker. He was poised for a great junior year before injuries caused him to miss all but three games. He missed the opener due to injury, started the next two games at left tackle but suffered a broken left foot. Crosby started 12 of 13 games played in 2015 at right tackle, one year after stepping into the starting lineup because of injuries in 2014. Crosby (a top-40 tackle recruit from Henderson, Nevada) started nine games that year, including each of the final six at left and right tackle, while playing in all of the Ducks' 15 contests.

Overview
Evaluators may stick with Crosby at right tackle in the pros, but his issues with hip tightness and gaining enough ground to the edge in pass protection may force a move inside to guard sooner rather than later. Crosby has technical issues to smooth out, but he will appeal to teams who covet size, length and strength as he puts big checkmarks in those boxes. Crosby is a bulldozer who can generate good movement in the run game, but he lacks the body control for desired consistency at tackle or guard. He has NFL starting talent but he may have a limited ceiling.
Strengths
  • Wide body with very good combination of mass and length for the tackle spot
  • Drive blocker with exceptional strength
  • Has adequate flexibility to drop pads and land at an adequate entry point at first contact
  • Able to unlock hips enough to boom on smaller opponents at impact
  • Runs feet through contact and will often generate quality movement in running game
  • Possesses powerful upper body and can engulf and maul opponents when he gets into them
  • Not a dancing bear, but he has serviceable movement skills combined with power and arm length to recover against opponents who challenge his inside or outside edge
  • Hands are strong
  • Able to handle short pull duties
  • Has experience at both tackle positions
Weaknesses
  • Below average body composition with soft upper body
  • Lacks initial quickness
  • Cut-off blocks are a challenge
  • Doesn't always secure positioning of base blocks through footwork
  • Lower hit rate on second level blocks
  • Technique and finesse need work
  • Gets lazy with hand placement in pass pro and will default to swallowing opponents with wide hands
  • Rarely asked to make pure pass sets in Oregon offense
  • Needs to prove he has adequate kick-slide quickness
  • Mirror footwork is a little sluggish
  • Struggles to keep his blocks centered
  • Will narrow base as a drive blocker allowing opponents to slide out of side door
  • Body control and balance and are just average
Sources Tell Us

"I think he will be a pretty good pro if he gets with the right team. If you are strong you can play in the NFL. He can improve his feet and learn tricks and shortcuts to help in that area. Coaches can slide protections to him. But you can't coach that size and power." - Retired NFL offensive lineman
