Draft Scouting Report

Draft Scouting Report:

Rating: 83.87 (Long-term starter)

Pro Comparison: James Carpenter


Steve Avila's overall lack of athleticism in space/with footwork could be a limiting factor, but he's strong as an ox and can consistently lock up DL types when he's in a phone booth. He's not asked to do a lot in space, but after a good week at the Senior Bowl, his stock is on the rise.


  • Mauler in a phone booth; if he gets his hands on you, it's over
  • Balanced in pass sets, uses hands and feet well, anchors well in small areas
  • Handles interior twists stunts; keeps head up, well balanced, doesn't lunge, locks up DL types
  • Consistently moves iDL type off spot to create creases in run game


  • Can get walked back a bit when DL type wins high but does show ability to re-anchor
  • Can get out in space on screens but is more plodding than smooth when in space
  • Will consistently lock up iDL types with good initial punch but can sometimes struggle to stay engaged in run

Combine Results:

  • 40-Yard Dash: 5.21 seconds
  • Vertical: 29.5 inches
  • Broad Jump: 8 feet, 2 inches
  • 3-Cone Drill: 7.85 seconds
  • Shuttle Run: 4.74 seconds
  • Bench Press: 28 reps
