Name: Zack Shackelford
CONFERENCE: Big 12
POSITION: Interior Offensive Lineman
JERSEY: No. 56
RECRUITMENT RATING: 3-star
WT: 305 lbs
PROS: Can anchor and stall pass rushes, has the ability to drive defensive lineman after anchoring with good power. Counters and replaces hands. Strong base in pass protection. Active hands. Able to climb to the next level with good mobility, drives defensive lineman on combo blocks. Good job getting under the pads of defensive lineman. Bring a good pop when he climbs and attacks linebackers.
CONS: Not an outstanding lateral mover who can fail to reach defensive lineman despite quick initial hat placement. Only an average athlete who doesn’t dominant or finish blocks often. Is stable, but not overwhelming. Though he’s able to anchor, he does give up some initial interior pressure. Needs quicker, more power steps at snap.
