PROS: Good processor. He’s alert with strong reactionary skills. Athletic profile is strong and he has natural movement skills. Gets his work done in space and he takes precisely calculated angles to connect with moving targets. Offers positional flexibility to guard and tackle. Experienced rolling his hips in contact and there is a natural projection to NFL run game concepts.
CONS: Hands are all over the place. Punches are wide and he just doesn’t get ‘em fit properly. Grip strength is weak and he is easily swiped. Location, timing and placement of hands is erratic and defenders easily get to his pads. Surprising lack of functional strength and control. Has no consistency framing pass rushers on the perimeter and he needs to kick inside to guard to have a chance. Top heavy and folds at the waste.
BEST TRAIT - Football Intelligence
WORST TRAIT - Hands
RED FLAGS - None
Michigan offensive tackle Jon Runyan is not what you expect him to be on tape, especially if you have his father on your mind who was a former Pro Bowler in the NFL. While the football IQ is obvious, his lack of technique and functional strength are major concerns. His hands are among the most erratic in the class, his body control is poor and he lacks power. Runyan will likely need to play guard in the NFL but his limitations are notable.
