Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Thayer Munford has outstanding size which makes him a project prospect. His experience at Left tackle (38 games), Left guard (11 games), and Right tackle (8 games) gives him value as a prospect. His film shows a better understanding of defenses from the tackle position rather than the guard position. At tackle all of his mental and technical traits improve. He plays quicker and anchors better from the tackle position. Whether playing tackle or guard he lacks power and movement at the point of attack in the run game.
