Tristen Hoge is a marginal athlete with regard to body control and agility. In the run game, he isn’t a vertical mover. He’s more of a positional blocker. In the passing game, he struggles to redirect laterally. He has moments where he anchors well, but struggles with defenders' quick inside moves. 

Ideal Role: PUDFA/Developmental prospect.

Scheme Fit: Zone blocking scheme.


Written by Drae Harris

Games watched: Coastal Carolina (2020), WKU (2020), SDSU (2020)

Best Game Studied: WKU (2020)

Worst Game Studied: SDSU (2020)

Competitive Toughness: He displays average competitive toughness, as demonstrated in his block temperament and run game aggression.

Balance: He plays with average balance and posture while in his pass set. He has been on the ground some and needs to do a better job of keeping his feet underneath him.

Anchor: He displays average anchor when handling the bull rush. He doesn’t bend well enough to anchor well against more powerful rushers. 

Lateral Mobility: He has marginal lateral mobility, as evidenced in his ability to redirect when a defender has countered inside. 

Power at P.O.A.: He demonstrates average power at the point of attack. This is demonstrated in his punch and his ability to uncoil his hips.

Hand Technique: He has average hands and could afford to improve his timing and overall punch.

Football IQ: He appears to do a good job anticipating stunts and games inside. 

Versatility: He lacks true versatility, as his skill set suggests he should remain at guard only. 

Pass Set: He is average in his pass set, and has moments that lack fluidity when moving laterally. 

Flexibility: He lacks good flexibility and his inability to bend well makes him struggle to anchor some. 


TDN Consensus: To Be Determined

Drae Harris: 66/100
