Rashawn Slater Highlights

Rashawn Slater Draft Profile

Strengths

Rashawn Slater has elite footwork. In fact, his footwork may be the best of this draft class. Everything about Slater is fast. He quickly jumps out of his stance and beats defenders off the ball. Slater also processes the game extremely fast, adjusting to everything defenses attempt to confuse him with. He simply is a high IQ, incredible athlete at the offensive tackle position.

Weaknesses

While he is extremely fast and a good athlete, he is a bit small. His size and arm length could scare some teams away, especially those who still place high emphasis on arm length. For this reason, some team’s may look to covert him into a guard. Slater’s speed is also far more intimidating than his power. He isn’t going to be a bulldozer in the NFL. We also did not get to see Slater on the field last season, due to him opting out of the 2020 season.
