Build

Does he have prototype size? What is body type? What is growth potential?

Average height and above the line weight. He has a thick build with a wide base and tree trunks for legs. He has long arms that are a key part of his game. Frame is pretty filled out and will not be able to add on much more weight, No major injury concerns.

Mental

Is he instinctual? Does he play with urgency?

Physical blocker that relies on brute power to move defenders and protect the QB. He blocks until the whistle. … I would not quantify him as a "nasty" blocker as he does not consistently overpower defenders to the ground. Despite being a four-year starter, he consistently struggled reacting to stunts and movements by the defense.

Athleticism

Does he have the athletic traits you want?

Big athlete who relies on strength more than athleticism. He is quick off the line and gets onto defenders quick. He has the strength to hold his own in pass pro and has claws once engaged with defenders, gaining movement in the run game. … That said, he lacks the lateral agility to effectively play in space. He does not redirect well and does not kickstep very quickly in pass pro. He has balance issues that come from heavy leaning where he ends up on the ground. He has tight hips and plays with very high pad level.

Technical

Does he have a refined skill set? Is he a projection or is his game developed enough to contribute early?

Played RT over the last two seasons where he is best in slide protection, using his length and initial quickness to protect the edge. His length allows him to cover ground and push out speed rushers. He also has the power to hold his ground on bull rushes and the base to anchor. He has a strong grasp and hand fights throughout the play to reset hands. He has the power to get movement in the run game, especially when his hands are placed on the inside of the defenders' chest. Has the versatility to block in any scheme but is best at angle-drive blocks, where he can act as an effective phone booth blocker using his length to keep the defender away. ... Due to his lack of athleticism and flexibility, he is limited in certain areas. As a pass blocker, he is threatened by speed rushers and often gives up a soft shoulder on the edge. He does not have the agility to consistently redirect on up and under moves. His balance is called into question, as he lunges on jab moves, due to suspect footwork and poor balance. He plays high and exposes his chest to bull rushes as he is walked back by defenders. In the run and pass games, his erratic hand strikes are wide and he exposes his chest. In the run game, he lacks the lateral agility to make blocks in space, especially at the second level. His lack of natural leverage and inability to keep feet moving prevent his ability to gain movement.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Paul has been a four-year player at Tulsa. He has been a starter at both guard spots and RT over the last two years. He has the size and length to be effective at any spot on the OL. His length and power allow him to anchor in the pass game and move defenders in the run game. That said, his lack of athleticism and balance create issues in pass protection and when playing in space. He plays high which limits some of the movement he gets in the run game. Despite playing tackle over the last two years, he projects best as a guard at the next level, where his deficiencies of playing in space can be covered up. His game has much room to grow, as he projects best as a developmental OG with some positional versatility.
