NAME: Greg Little
SCHOOL: Ole Miss
POSITION: Offensive Tackle
JERSEY: No. 74
RECRUITMENT RATING: 5-star
WT: 325 lbs
PROS: Size, length and athleticism are evident early and often on tape. Physical tackle who can get to the second level and seal up linebackers with ease. Movement skills are excellent, frame carries very little bad weight. Fires off the ball with a purpose. Physicality and desire are evident.
Explosive out of his stance (in flashes) and has legit range in his sets if he can develop his footwork further. Can mirror speed rushers up the arc with smooth agility. Good mental processing to pick up stunts and find late blitzers. Careful not to overset, trusts his footwork to be able to match speed.
CONS: Technique has a long way to go. In pass protection, strikes are too wide, opening his chest to bull rushes and forcing him to grab cloth and hold. Gets push-pulled because he leaves himself exposed. Feet and hands are still learning to work in sync together. Needs to get more out of his first step against wider techniques. Posture could be more flat-backed.
Has to drop the pad level a bit off the ball in the run game. Can’t create movement because he negates his power by standing up and not getting his hands inside. Not having chest control cause him to lose reps or fail to win them as dominantly as he should. Rarely in complete control as a blocker.
