Build

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

Vrabel has average HT and limited WT with average length. Adequate muscle in extremities with minimal definition. Has an average bubble and thighs, and relatively thick ankles. Appears to carry his WT a little top-heavy, particularly in his mid-section. Fluctuated between 300lb and 310lb at BC; appears to have the frame to develop at either the tackle or guard position.

Mental

Is he instinctual? Does he play with urgency?

Is active every play and is always looking for work. Does an excellent job recognizing pass rush moves to beat opponents to the POA. Does an adequate job taking on stunts and delayed blitzes. He never gives up on a play and will do whatever is necessary to impede defenders with a clear path to the ball carrier.

Athleticism

Does he have the athletic traits you want?

Overall, he possesses average AA in most facets of his game. Displays very quick feet that complement his short area quickness and lateral movement. His adequate speed allows him to comfortably reach defenders at the second level. Too much of his strength is generated from his upper body and will need to improve his lower body flexibility/mechanics to dominate at the POA and anchor against stronger lineman.

Technical

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

Has adequate capabilities in both the run and pass game. Does well staying square to the LOS in zone runs and pass sets. Shows above the line ability to work off his double teams and locate defenders at the second level. Can quickly turn his hips while moving laterally to seal off his defender and create running lanes for his backs. Delivers strong, accurate punches to neutralize defender's initial moves. Struggles to reposition his hands inside and deliver additional punches after opponents disengage. Biggest issue is his tendency to bend at the waist rather than the knees (particulary in the run game), which makes it difficult to engage and sustain blocking assigments. Appears to leam forward too much in his 2 pt. stance with his shoulders past his knees. Difficulty with anchoring versus power moves stems from aforementioned concern about lower body strength and flexbility.

Summary

What role does he play? What is his initial projection?
Tyler Vrabel, son of Titans head coach Mike Vrabel, has started in 34 of his 36 games played for Boston College. A consensus 3-star OT out of high school, he was ranked the 128th OT and 1386th overall player in the 2018 class by 247Sports. Redshirted his first year after playing 2 games. He has experience at both tackle postions, playing RT in his RS sophomore year and LT his RS freshman and RS junior seasons. Given his AA and technical profile, he is best suited as a swing tackle in a zone scheme, however, coaches might see more potential with moving him inside. While he has starter potential, expect him to begin his career as a backup while he continues to get stronger with an NFL training regiment.
