Round 7 - 4

1) O'Cyrus Torrence | 6'5 | 330 | OG | Florida

9/3 - Utah - Torrence was impressive in this one. He was a wall in  pass pro, and did very well in the run game. He moved bodies off the LOS when going head up, and then did well climbing to the 2nd level to hem up LBs.

9/10 - Kentucky - Torrence had a very good night. He played with good power and balance throughout the game. He was reliable and sturdy in pass pro, also did a fine job creating run lanes for his RBs. 

9/24 - Tennessee - Torrence had a dominating game. He played with power throughout this contest, most prevalently in the run game. He washed his man out with power several times. He was very reliable in pass pro as well, gave up no ground. 

10/8 - Missouri - Torrence had a nice game. The Gators opted for the run game, and did so often behind their best O-lineman. Torrence showed strength, moved bodies off the point. 

10/29 - Georgia - With the exception of Jalen Carter taking him to the task on 3rd downs, Torrence was great, landed a ton of great blocks throughout this contest. 

2) Andrew Vorhees | 6'6 | 310 | OG | USC

9/10 - Stanford - Vorhees had an impressive game. Atop of providing wall-like pass protection, he was a monster in the run game. He opened up quite a few run lanes, often washing his man out of the play. 

9/17 - Fresno - Vorhees looked dominant yet again, showing off very good functional strength. It was seemingly easy for him to lock his man out in pass pro, and to get a good push in the run game. USC ran behind him with success.

10/1 - Arizona State - Vorhees had a good game. He was technically very sound, did a good job of keeping his hands tight and controlling his man. While he didn't have many wow blocks, he was incredibly consistent. 

10/8 - Washington State - Vorhees was solid yet again. He was reliable in pass pro, while establishing some very good run lanes. His ability to match strength and hold strong at the LOS stood out. 

10/15 - Utah - Vorhees looked the part. USC ran behind him all night, found success doing so. He also was stout in pass blocking, let nothing by him.


3) Steve Avila | 6'4 | 332 | OG/C | TCU

9/1 - Colorado - Avila had a decent game, with this contest really showing his strengths and areas of opportunity. On the plus side, he's a big dude who can occupy defenders in  pass pro, and to a lesser degree the run game. Once he latches on and gets a push, he can be a factor. However, he can be slow out of his stance will often catch defenders vs. getting into them first. When he can catch and regroup, he's adequate to good. When beaten to the punch and faced with good speed and strength, he can struggle. 

10/1 - Oklahoma - Avila had a good game. While not real fluid, he showed off bullying power, was able to create run lanes quite well when he got the right angle.

4) Jordan McFadden | 6'2 | 303 | OG/OT | Clemson

9/5 - Georgia Tech - McFadden manned the LT spot, and it's hard to argue from this performance that he couldn't stay there at the next level. He mirrored well, showed off a well-timed punch, and had the requisite play strength to hold up against power. 

9/24 - Wake Forest - McFadden was again at LT, and he performed very well. He was fluid, capable, and reliable in pass protection, while showing latch on power in the run game. 

10/1 - NC State - McFadden, as per usual, was very reliable. He held down his side well in both pass sets and in the run game. 

10/8 - Boston College - McFadden routinely walled his man off in pass pro, and gave a push or sealed the edge in the run game. While I still he playing inside at the next level, his play at LT has been quite good. 

5) Emil Ekiyor | 6'3 | 314 | OG | Alabama

9/10 - Texas - Ekiyor faced some very stiff competition today, but he impressed. While he did give up some ground in pass pro a few times, he was generally very solid. He was better in the run game, getting good leverage and creating run lanes for his RBs.

10/1 - Arkansas - Ekiyor had a great game. While he was very stout in pass pro, his run blocking is what stood out. He did an excellent job of keeping his hands tight within his frame and using plus leg drive to wash defenders off the LOS. 

10/8 - Texas A&M - Ekiyor had a solid game, but was far from perfect. While he did land some nice run blocks at times, he didn't look technically sound at times, also didn't finish a few times. 

6) Nick Broeker | 6'4 | 315 | OG/LT | Ole Miss

10/1 - Kentucky - Broeker had a bit of an up and down game. For starters, he looked more aggressive and nasty to me last season. While he did play with decent functional power at times, he also let some blocks slip off, wasn't wildly consistent. He was solid in pass pro, but not dominant. His move to the inside may evidence some slippage on his performance level overall. 

7) Jaxson Kirkland | 6'6 | 310 | OG/LT | Washington 

9/30 - UCLA - Kirkland had a very average game. While he carried out his assignments, he didn't show off great play strength or athleticism getting out into space. As evidenced by WU's meager 65 yards rushing, there was little push up front. 

8) Juice Scruggs | 6'3 | 308 | OG | Penn State

9) Jon Gaines | 6'4 | 300 | OG | UCLA

10) Sidy Sow | 6'5 | 323 | OG | Eastern Michigan

11) Matthew Bedford | 6'6 | 310 | OG/OT | Indiana (Out for Season, torn ACL)

9/3 - Illinois - Bedford manned the RT spot, and looked decent to solid on every snap. While his hands did get wide a few times, he was otherwise clean. He still looks as if he'd be better of at the next level kicking inside, and the skill set he showed tonight looks transferable to said cause. 

9/24 - Cincinnati - Bedford looked good today, showed off nice play strength and functionality in both the run game and his pass sets. 

12) Jerome Carvin | 6'4 | 308 | OG | Tennessee

13) McClendon Curtis | 6'6 | 324 | OG | Chattanooga

14) Malaesala Aumavae-Laulu | 6'5 | 325 | OG/OT | Oregon 

9/1 - Georgia - Malaesala Aumavae-Laulu held down the RT post, played with resolute strength in doing so. He wasn't real quick or fluid, but he wasn't a liability because of as much. He looked solid on down blocks, and was generally able to hold off the edge for plays to have a chance to develop.

9/17 - BYU - Malaesala Aumavae-Laulu was solid at RT, showing off good power in pass pro and in the run game. 

15) T.J Bass | 6'5 | 318 | OG/OT | Oregon 

9/1 - Georgia - Bass held down the LT spot in this one, and looked solid doing so. Oregon did go for quick-hitting plays, which meant Bass didn't have to hold form for long. But, he wasn't a liability when needed to hold up in pass pro. He did look good on a few run plays in particular, showing some good play strength. 

9/17 - BYU - Bass lined up at LT and was adequate. He never wowed in any regard, but was able to keep his man at bay for plays to develop. 

16) Doug Nester | 6'7 | 323 | OG/OT | West Virginia

9/1 - Pittsburgh - Nester held down the RT spot early on, and was decent as a whole. He did nothing to stand out, but wasn't a liability against what was supposed to be a vaunted pass-rush attack. 

17) Atonio Mati | 6'3 | 338 | OG | UCLA

999) Zak Zinter | 6'6 | 320 | OG | Michigan

999) Cooper Beebe | 6'4 | 322 | LG/LT | Kansas State
