2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Cyrus Kouandjio, OL , Alabama

Kouandjio is the next elite offensive line prospect out of Alabama and lives up to his high-billing. He possesses the ideal left tackle height, length, weight and foot speed. Kouandjio moves well and should be able to compete immediately as a potential starter to anchor a team's offensive line.

Can eat up defenders with massive frame and excellent strength as a run blocker. Would be a beast in a zone blocking scheme given his eye-opening quickness. Will hit a spot and seal the running lane with ease. If he gets his hands on a defender, he will dominate. Better run blocker than in pass protection, but far from a weakness. Mirrors defenders well and shields the pocket using his body. Terrific arm length and redirects pass-rushers out of the play. Slides his feet quickly. Still some room for technique improvement given he is relatively new to the sport. Will sometimes rely too much on upper body and get caught leaning or lunging.

Noticeable mean streak. Nasty disposition. Visibly winded late in games.

Kouandjio should be a lock for the top half of the first round in the 2014 NFL Draft.
