This year I wrote the player rankings and evaluations for the USA Today 2012 NFL Draft magazine. It's on newsstands now and available online here. Leading up to the draft, I'll be reprinting some of my quick reports here.
Brandon Mosley, Auburn
Height: 6'5, Weight: 305 pounds
Strengths: Has excellent athleticism for the position. Plays with great effort and gets the most out of his ability. Possesses plus lateral agility and is a weapon when he can get to the second level and block. Started all 13 games in 2011, 12 at right tackle and one at left tackle. Invited to the Senior Bowl. Incredible development upside.
Weaknesses: Speed rushers can routinely get past Mosley working either to the outside or inside. He’s still learning angles and technique in pass blocking and needs to keep his hands higher. Minimal experience. Mosley is a junior college recruit who was initially came to Auburn as a tight end.
