Strengths

Prototype overall size. Plays with great power and strength. Imposing figure on the offensive line. Plus athleticism for his size/strength combination. Stays low and plays with leverage out of his stance. Easily moves guys at the point of attack. Effective down blocker. Very strong hands. Can get the job done with a quick shove. Will strike and then quickly strike again. Exceptional balance. Rarely goes to the ground. Very quiet in his pass sets. Anchors down as a wall in pass protection. Plays with great overall patience. Can help with one arm while scanning the field as a pass blocker. Good overall awareness. Great feel for positioning and creating running lanes with a seal block. Makes key movement blocks on the edge to help bounce plays outside. Smooth leading the way in space. Bulldozer with a head of steam. Bullies smaller defenders when given the opportunity. Plays with grit and finishes blocks without hesitation. Three-year starter at left tackle.

 

Weaknesses

A bit lumbering/plodding overall. Average quickness. Wasn’t really tested against an elite speed rush. Hand placement can be cleaned up. Grabs too much outside the shoulder pads at times.

Conclusion

Overall, Darrisaw is an all-around left tackle that possesses a rare combination of power and grace on the offensive line. Teams with a need on the blindside should consider Darrisaw as a top-ten pick because of what he brings to the table both as a run blocker and pass protector.
