    Lloyd aligns at Center for the Tiger offense. This player brings sufficient overall athleticism to the center position. In the run game, he displays good temperament and toughness. He will come off the ball and strike in the run game. He shows good awareness as a good partner on combo blocks. He doesn’t generate much vertical movement in the run game. He appears to be more of a positional blocker and lacks a good run lane anchor. He does a sufficient job getting to the second level and is sufficient at getting on moving, more athletic defenders. In the passing game he is sufficient. He has good initial quickness out of his stance. He also displays very good competitiveness and short set anchor, after he has snapped and is covered up with a “0” or “1”. Has shown the ability to handle bull rushers when he’s covered up. Although he only has sufficient lateral agility, He has demonstrated good recovery and competitiveness to recover when he has been beaten off the snap. He’s still raw in terms of his technique and his balance overall is sufficient. However, it maximizes his skill set because he is playing with bumpers which allow him to recover easier when hes lost his leverage. Has good punch and latch strength in his hands while also keeping his hands inside the frame. Also shows his athleticism when engaging moving, agile defenders at the second level. Athleticism on display as he is rarely on the ground. In the NFL this player will have increased value due to his projected ability to play Guard. While he can improve the consistency of his technique, this player often gets it done with toughness and competes in a very competitive football conference. His skill set projects with some positional flexibility thus increasing his value, as he may be better suited to play OG initially. He could certainly afford to get stronger in his lower body. He struggles at times with his balance and overall body control. As a result, he is a bit of a waist bender. He doesn’t always play with great base as his feet and shoulders are not always aligned. He needs to be more consistent at playing with good pad level. This players skill set is a better fit at OG but could play OC in a pinch in the NFL.
