    PROS: Man, Leatherwood is athletic! He moves really well in space and his mirror ability is something to take note of. He's not afraid to embrace the path of least resistance as a blocker in zone concepts, consistently turning out defenders and using momentum against them to win spacing. Shows a ton of natural power and strength as a blocker to win and reset the LOS, pairing it with a dynamic first step to gain ground and win on the correct side of the line of scrimmage. Athletic build carries weight very well, he's a natural mover and can thrive in gap or zone concepts. 

    CONS: He's a little sloppy with his technique still -- there are lapses of hand fits and framing of blocks that make life more difficult for him than it needs to be at times. He can be a bit of a leaner at times, not due to physical restrictions but rather on account of some complacency or throwing his hands late to establish his first punch.
