Zebrie Sanders OT Florida State #77 Ht: 6’5″

Wt: 308

  Strengths: Adequate height and overall size. Impressive athleticism and quickness; easily gets to the second level and can get down the field on screens, draws, etc. Quick feet allows him to stay with more athletic pass rushers. Clearly has the raw skills necessary to play left tackle. Excellent awareness on the field; keeps his head on a swivel and is quick to pick up blitzes. Hard worker off the field and an excellent student; an accomplished violin player. Four-year starter. Weaknesses: Doesn’t have a strong base; will get pushed around by more physical bull rushers in one-on-one matchups. Fundamentals are inconsistent; relies on athleticism and will get beat by more technically sound pass rushers. Lacks the power to finish off his blocks; sort of a bend-but-don’t-break style in pass protection. Has a tendency to lunge for his man and spends too much time on the ground. Comments: Sanders is adequate in just about every aspect of the game, but he lacks that something extra to bump him up to the next level as a prospect. He has the athleticism of a left tackle, but probably isn’t ready to step into a starting role right away. It’s tough to find players with his athleticism and size, which will bump him up on draft boards higher than his performance would otherwise dictate. In time, he could develop into an adequate starter, but if he’s thrown into the fire too early it could be detrimental to his long-term development. Videos: 2011 vs Miami
