Build

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

Wallace has adequate HT and average WT. Has an above the line frame that is wide, thick throughout, and has potential to hold additional mass. Strong extremities but muscular definition is not present. Unknown if his 2 pt. stance (slightly open to SL) is a result of some limited hip and/or lumbar mobility, or a technical adjustment.

Mental

Is he instinctual? Does he play with urgency?

Approaches each play with physicality and aggression, particularly in the run game. Makes an effort to drive every opponent into the dirt. Has shown instances misreading opponents off the snap, resulting in missteps and lunging. Needs to be more patient with anticipating stunts/twists.

Athleticism

Does he have the athletic traits you want?

Overall, he displays adequate athleticism for the position. Has an explosive first step that beats his opponent at the POA. Needs to work on continuing his feet in pass protection once he makes initial contact. Adequate mover in space with adequate speed, acceleration, and change of direction. Displays excellent knee bend and quick feet that allow him to easily react and redirect opponent's moves. Excels at sinking his hips and widening his base to anchor. Needs to improve his ability to step back up/inside from his initial kickstep, as he had issues reacting to secondary inside moves.

Technical

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

While he already has relatively adequate technique in the run and pass game, he has plenty of potential for growth. Shows an ability to easily move defenders by staying low at the POA and drive his feet with good pace. Is capable at positioning himself between the defender and ball carrier even when his hands aren't properly engaged. Delivers a strong two handed punch that will need improvement with placement and timing -- needs to work on developing independent hands in his repertoire. Leaves himself susceptible to athletic pass rushers in wide-9 tech by turning his body to the sideline too quickly and getting beat by an inside move. Is outstanding with sinking his hips and anchoring down versus power moves.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Rasheed Walker was a 3-year starter at left tackle for the Nittany Lions, starting in 32 of his 36 total career games. A consensus 4-star prospect, he was ranked the 47th overall prospect and 3rd offensive tackle by 247Sports. While he showed promise and growth in his first two seasons, his performance regressed in his final season at PSU, as his performances were extremely inconsistent. While he solely played LT at Penn State, you could argue that he can make the move to RT, if necessary. He has the physical tools to be an above the line starting tackle in a zone scheme at the next level, but will need sufficient coaching to improve his technique. Points of emphasis that will need to be addressed include his ability to read defenders off the snap and his tendency to lunge at opponents. All in all, Walker can see significant playing time early with the right coaching staff.
