Evan Neal Draft Profile

Strengths

Evan Neal is a massive, strong offensive lineman that is ready to be one of the best in the league. He is explosive out of his stance, showing great athleticism while also being light on his feet. Neal played left tackle last season for Alabama, right tackle the year before and left guard before that. So, not only will he get better with some stability at a position, but Neal has the versatility to play multiple positions if need be.

If Neal gets his hands on you, he’s going to bury you. He plays with an attitude, yet he only had one holding penalty last season.

Weaknesses

Neal needs to sit back a bit more in pass protection. He has too much weight over his toes, leading to him being off-balanced. This is also part of the reason why he falls off of blocks too often. However, with the right coaching, he has obvious All-Pro potential.
