Strengths

Three-year starter at left tackle. Calm and smooth overall player. Strong size/build. Excellent overall power. Knows how to position himself to make a block that will open a running lane. Quick off the ball as a down blocker. Great ability to redirect shoulders/hips to another target. Plays with grittiness and will shove guys at the end of plays. Good accuracy working to the second level. High awareness in pass protection. Very patient as a pass blocker. Pass sets are soft and quick for his size. Base is very wide and balanced. Impressive ability to recover versus speed rushes. Strong against power rushes. Throws accurate two-handed strikes to the chest of opponents. Overall skillset should make guard an easy potential transition.

 

Weaknesses

Below-average length for an offensive line. Needs to be a tick quicker than opponents to make up for length issues. Length issues showed up with top rushers getting to his chest. Has some problems with balance due to leaning forward. Average mobility to get out and lead the way in space.

Conclusion

Overall, Eichenberg knows how to open holes in the running game and possesses high intelligence as a pass protector. His best fit might end up being inside, but Eichenberg should get a shot at tackle after three strong years on the blindside for Notre Dame.
