Thoughts on Kaleb McGary? John McClain in Houston is enamored by him, and the box score scouting says he held his own at the combine...

At this point, I'm pretty sure Andre Dilliard has passed him and I'd venture a guess that Dalton Risner has as well.  Jonah Williams tested really, really poorly.  IF you're drafting him, you're throwing the Combine out the window.  26th percentile in arm length, 42nd in bench press, 41st in 20 yard SS, and 30th in 3-cone.  He's probably OT3 now.  That's probably somewhere in that 18-24 range.

23 would be nice.

@IDOG_det   He's a stellar athlete. Can you at least agree to this now?

Evan Silva must mistaken, Dillard was not the #1 rated OT for pass pro by PFF, he wasn’t even top 3.

He's excellent. Big and strong, but doesn't give up many pressures either. He'll be a dependable and sturdy RT for the next 10+ years. I don't think he's dissimilar from Mike McGlinchey really...other than the fact that he'll actually go where he's supposed to go (2nd round).

Is the Tytus Howard hype deserved? Or is it just because he is big and has long arms lol

I like him. He's going to have a major adjustment period, but it's not just the long arms. He's excellent physically and has power in his fists and mirroring speed with his feet. He effortlessly moves to the second level when asked to do that as well. He is raw as can be, but there is IMMENSE talent there.

He has TRex arms for being 6’7 having under 33” arms... he’s a big guy to move around but I’m worried about him on the edge.

He'll have some trouble against speed rushers on the outside but not that much. People place way too much on physical talent when cons can be made up for with technique, instinct, and a mean streak for the most part.

He is terrific. Top 5 OT talent imo.

I don't know about this. I've not seen him struggle with speed despite his size and skin complexion, which would believe one to assume he's slow-footed.

Is he somebody who would be a shock at 23? Seems like he's limited to RT - could he transition to LT?

I think he's more of a RT. I guess he could play LT, but I think he's much better suited for the right side. He's not an incredibly nimble athlete and while it doesn't kill him in pass protection, I can't imagine him reach blocking athletes on the right side of a defense.

 

And he'd be a weird fit in Houston, assuming they still run a ZBS.

Nah - it was a Kubiak thing. O'Brien has some zone concepts, but it's starting to transition to a power OL.

Yeah, he fits the mold (which fortunately that "mold" has had success in term of ascending to starter-status within the 4-year-window of the rookie contract) of the toolsy, too-raw-to-start-immediately "small school project OT" which has gone in the mid-rounds and comes good in Y2-Y3.  Tytus reminds of a less-developed Terron Armstead (prospect Armstead) at this point.
