  • Derek Sherrod, 6-5/321

  • Offensive Tackle

  • Mississippi State


  • Derek Sherrod Scouting Report
    By Greg Cox

    Strengths:
  • Coveted height and size
  • Able to play left tackle
  • Skilled pass blocker
  • Protects edge rushers well
  • Can mirror defenders in space
  • Gets to second level and blocks downfield
  • Intelligent and very high character
  • Tons of experience against top competition



    Weaknesses:
  • Must get stronger and add bulk
  • Tends to lunge
  • Balance issues
  • Run blocking needs work
  • Mild demeanor; has to finish blocks

    Summary: Derek Sherrod might need to get a pep talk similar to what Sandra Bullock (playing Leigh Anne Tuohy) gave Michael Oher in The Blind Side. He has the size and athletic ability to play left tackle in the NFL, but could be too timid to deal with some of the more aggressive pass rushers. Almost everything else checks out, and in a generally weak draft class, he is one of the top tackles expected to be able to man the left side.
