Athleticism

Does he have the athletic traits you want?

Penning shows adequate explosiveness for a tackle. His handstrike and foot drive are effective initially but wane as the play progresses.

Technical

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

Penning shows average running blocking ability due to his lack on initial leverage and strike when engaging. He brings a sense of nastiness with his disposition and is a tone setter for the OL. He shows above the line footwork and agility when pass blocking. He can mirror defenders but can get caught up on inside moves. Penning is a fluid mover in the open field but misses his target a decent amount. He has the core strength to anchor down power moves and torque players to the ground.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Penning projects as a 1st year starter at left tackle in his rookie year. He would excel in an offense that would optimize his agility in a zone blocking scheme and use him on vertical sets on deep pass concepts. Overall, Penning is a taller tackle with nimble feet for his height who needs to work on his knee bend and drive in the run game.
