A move inside would make him a high-level athlete on the interior.
He plays the game with good balance when he is in his pass set and as a run blocker. He rarely has a rep where he’s in compromising positions and ends up on the ground. His ability to bend well helps him get his body in advantageous positions.
Does not appear to have the strike zone to continue on the outside.
He lacks the ideal length for the tackle position. While he is a good enough athlete to survive at tackle, longer defensive linemen will give him problems on the perimeter. However, if moved inside to guard, this isn’t that big of a concern.
Slow feet don't eat but slow hands don't land!
His hands and punch are exceptional. He has very good timing and an explosive upper body. Although his lack of ideal length sometimes gets him in compromising positions.
Sean Rhyan is a very good athlete with regard to quickness, mobility, and body control. In the run game, he comes off the ball hard to generate vertical movement. He effortlessly gets out of his stance and can get to the edge and reach block an end. He plays with good natural leverage and has good body flexibility in his hips and ankles. He is a very good helper on combo blocks and easily gets to the second level.
In the passing game, he has powerful and explosive hands in his punch. His lack of ideal length on the perimeter can give him issues against longer defensive linemen. He is fluid moving laterally when handling the cross face by defenders. He plays with good balance and is rarely on the ground. In the NFL, while some may try him at tackle, I believe his skill set is better suited at guard. He lacks the ideal length and this will give him issues in the NFL at tackle but he should grow to be an exceptional guard.
Ideal Role: Eventual NFL starter
Scheme Fit: He can play in any scheme but would excel in a power run scheme
