Rnd 4 #121 OT Willie Beavers, Western Michigan
6'5, 321#

Very good size and length. Certainly displays good athleticism to play the left tackle position with very good feet and agility. Three year starter. Gets off the ball well and can slide in pass pro and stay in front of defenders. When beaten on the outside with a speed rush, can recover in time and get back on defender. Gets in his set well, has a strong base and nice initial punch. Good straight-line speed to get down field and block for his teammate in the screen game. Fires out quickly in run blocking, playing with good leverage and can block down effectively. Also shows the ability to just steer a defender the way he wants.

I had him in my Freak Show Mock!

Applause

He definitely needs to get stronger, but the tools are there to potentially start.

I like him a lot. He's a guy I think can play anywhere on the OL. I wanted the Jaguars to somehow get him.

Good job.

Solid pick. Could be viewed as a the potential RT of the future. I was hoping that OL and DL would be the focus in round 4 and 5. Glad they got another OT to add to the mix.

Solid pick. Adds more depth and more competition, plus some insurance for next year.

What does his score/chart look like against guards? Danielle announced him as a guard, probably should examine that as well.

The web gets significantly larger. Honestly, I think that if he spends some time on his core/upper body he will have the ability to hang out on an island.

Lance Zerlien, an OLine guru says:

Beavers is very athletic with the feet to play left tackle, but has the talent and traits to play all over the offensive line with more technique work. While he clearly has some power and twitch in his hips, he could use a year in an NFL weight room to strengthen his core and upper body. Beavers is an eventual NFL starter who is likely to be targeted by teams who covet tackles who can excel in space.

3rd round grade

Would have preferred Billings, but guess now we can truly draft BPA. (Hoping for Böhringer) Very Happy
