Michael Oher OT Ole Miss #74

Ht: 6'5
Wt: 320

Ideal size and strength for a left tackle. Excellent athleticism. Technically sound. Does everything right; reads and reads to different schemes like a pro. Has the long arms necessary to truly dominate defenders. Strong legs give him a sturdy base. Showed consistent improvement throughout his career. A high character guy that his coaches loved at Ole Miss.
More efficient in pass protection at this point in his career. Needs to learn how to better use his lower body strength to push defenders backwards and create holes when run blocking.
Oher (pronounced "oar") is the subject of the book The Blind Side: The Evolution of the Game by Michael Lewis. He is quiet and reserved, which may cause some teams to shy away out of fear that he lacks a passion of the game. Physically, there isn't a more gifted tackle in this draft class and he makes a strong case for being the best available player overall.
