2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Stefen Wisniewski

  • Outstanding technician and understands nuances of blocking
  • Natural knee bender and executes leverage
  • Good mobility and range
  • Athletic
  • Very quick with a nice get-off after snap
  • Blue-collar, physical demeanor
  • Gets nice hand extension and controls opponents
  • Instinctive and aware at the line; picks up stunts and blitzes
  • Competitor who really fights on running downs
  • Fluid on pulls and traps; gets to second level
  • Tough
  • Finishes blocks
  • Lots of experience at both guard and center against top competition
  • Nice genetics
  • Great work ethic
  • Line general and team leader
  • Smooth footwork
  • Highly intelligent

  • Average size
  • Struggles against bigger opponents
  • Not very strong or powerful
  • Sometimes gets caught reaching
  • Could still improve upper body strength
  • Lacks explosive initial punch
  • Only a good fit at this point for zone blocking schemes
  • Limited upside

    Summary: Wisniewski seems to get the most out of his abilities and he looks like a quality starting center (more so than a guard) in the right scheme. He doesn't have a lot of size or bulk, so he will best fit in schemes that emphasize intelligence, instincts, quickness and technique such as Indianapolis, New England, Houston, and Green Bay.

    Wisniewski's father, Leo, played three seasons for the Colts and his uncle, Steve, was an eight-time Pro Bowler in Oakland. Wisniewski enters the season with a second-round grade on my board and he will probably come off the board in the top 75 picks. He needs to improve his physique strength-wise if he wants to become a first-rounder.

    Player Comparison: Ryan Kalil. Kalil has similar size to Wisniewski, and his bread and butter is also his technique, quickness, awareness and toughness.
