Scouting report: Eben Britton

274344-1_medium

Eben Britton

6'6, 310 pounds | Offensive tackle | Arizona

Strengths: Britton is a large offensive tackle who has a frame to get bigger and stronger. Knows when the blitz is coming and has the smarts to adjust. Excels at run blocking in line. Started all three years he was at Arizona. He uses his aggression to maintain and finish off blocks. Knows how to use a strong hand punch to jar opponents. Does a decent job getting to the second level, but he needs to seek out defenders better.

Weaknesses: Inconsistent off the snap. May not have the great foot quickness that’s required of a left tackle. Needs to slide his feet better instead of taking small steps. Benefited from playing in a wide-base spread offense where he was standing up off the snap. Marginal lateral agility.

Final word:
Played in 2006 and 2007 on the right side before shifting to the left for his senior season. Captain of Arizona’s offensive line. Lived up to the hype that followed him to Arizona. Has had no injury concerns. Started 37-consecutive games at Arizona.

Round projection: 1
