Strengths Weaknesses

STRENGTHS: He has a large frame and is well-put-together with NFL length to extend and meet rushers with timing and strong hands. once set up, he stays balanced in his kick-slide to mirror and halt rushers.

He has the physical upper body and natural bend to drive defenders from run lanes.

WEAKNESSES: Due to his height, Decker struggles with high pad level, often losing the leverage battle and allowing his pass-sets to become too narrow. He displays streaky snap anticipation on film and needs to improve his burst and timing out of his stance. As a run blocker, Decker needs to tidy up his angles

IN OUR VIEW: Although not a lock first round pick next spring, Decker could secure his status as the top senior offensive tackle prospect with improvement in the aforementioned areas this fall.

--Dane Brugler (7/13/15)

Player Overview

Arguably the top senior in the country at his position, Decker became a sophomore starter at right tackle in 2013, moving over to the left side last season and starting all 15 games.

01/12/2015 - Ohio State coach Urban Meyer says offensive tackle Taylor Decker and defensive tackle Adolphus Washington had told him they will return for their senior seasons. Decker was a second-team All-Big Ten selection. The 6-foot-7, 315-pound junior held down left tackle for the Buckeyes (14-1). Washington was an honorable mention All-Big Ten selection. The 6-4, 295-pound junior had 45 tackles and 3.5 sacks. Meyer said Sunday during his last news conference before the College Football Playoff national championship game against Oregon that Decker and Washington were the only underclassmen from Ohio State considering an early jump to the NFL. Meyer also re-iterated that he expects quarterback Braxton Miller, who injured his shoulder, to be part of the team next season. - AP Sports
