Wesley Britt

Height: 6-8 | Weight: 314 | College: Alabama
 
Copyright NFLDraftScout.com, distributed by The Sports Xchange
Overview

Positives … Has a very tall frame, with the ability to add at least another thirty pounds of bulk … Has lean muscle development and is light on his feet for a player of his size … Has adequate quickness to gain position and slide … Plays with good awareness and is quick to pick up line games and blitzes … Has the intelligence to pick up plays quickly and is an articulate, intelligent and vocal athlete … Uses his size properly to occupy space and gain position in order to wall off and sustain … Decent drive blocker who has the lateral mobility to gain position coming off the snap … Plays with a wide base and has made improvements in attempts to readjust and mirror vs. the edge rushers … Lacks the ability to sink his hips and stay at a low pad level, but uses his frame to lean in and grab to push his man off the line and wall off … Decent second level blocker, taking good angles to make the second level cut-off block … When he keeps his leg base wide, he is quick in his kick slide.

Negatives … Has adequate initial quickness, but tends to take false steps and get behind the defender when coming off the snap … Lacks explosion and flexibility to roll his hips and drive defenders off the ball, relying on his size to wall off … While he is a four-year starter on the left side, he does not have the lower body strength or the foot quickness to prevent from being beaten off the edge … This could lead to him moving to the right side in the pros, where he will not have to be isolated vs. the quicker edge rushers … More of a waist bender, rather than a knee bender, causing him to struggle when defenders get outside his frame work … Shows good hand placement, but fails to generate a strong punch, despite his upper body power … When he gets high in his stance, he tends to cross his feet, resulting in him struggling to redirect vs. the edge rush … Needs to do a better job of reloading his hands (drops them and does not throw them), as he keeps them too low, allowing defenders to get into his chest to push him back … .Has had durability issues with fractured leg bones the last two years that might warrant further medical evaluation …

Needs to take better angles to cut off linebackers when working in the second level … Might not be suited to play guard, as he is a marginal trap blocker who fails to bring his feet and loses balance when on the move … Must work on eliminating the false steps he takes on his deep set.
