Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: He has the short, squatty frame so conducive to winning the battle of leverage, showing impressive leg drive and the aggression to simply knock defenders backward. He isn't just a pile driver, however, showing impressive agility and understanding of angles to sneak ahead of opponents and seal them off, creating easy lanes for his teammates to exploit.

WEAKNESSES: While scouts will appreciate the versatility Blythe has shown at Iowa, he projects best at center in the NFL. Blythe doesn't possess ideal arm-length and can be steered off course when pitted one on one against defenders with a significant reach advantage.

--Rob Rang (9/1/15)

Player Overview

Kirk Ferentz continues to work his magic along the offensive line with Blythe just the latest Hawkeyes' blocker with a clear path to the NFL. The three-year starter personifies dependability, emerging as a starter at right guard as a redshirt freshman and splitting duties between this position, center and left guard in 2014, earning Second Team All-Big Ten honors from rival coaches.
