Mark Setterstrom OG 6’4 295 Minnesota
By: Robert Davis
For the past three years, Setterstrom has teamed with Greg Eslinger to form one of the best interior line pairs in the country. He has started all 38 games that he has played in at Minnesota. As a freshman he was named a freshman All-American and he has progressed into one of the best lineman in the Big 10 and nationally.
Setterstrom is a great technician. He sets up off the snap quickly and doesn’t let defenders get into his body. He loves to engage inside and will battle for the full 60 minutes. Setterstrom is as tough as they come on the OLine. He also displays solid agility and athleticism to block on the move.
Like his teammate Eslinger, Setterstrom’s biggest shortcoming is his bulk. He isn’t very big and he needs to add some weight to his frame at the next level. He can be pushed around and beaten in one on one situations with larger lineman.
Minnesota’s offensive line relies on a zone blocking scheme, so they like their lineman to rely more on their agility than brute strength. So their top lineman tend to be on the light side. If Setterstrom can add some weight to his frame, he would be one of the elite guard prospects in the draft. How much he can add before April will determine where he goes in the draft.
