2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Taylor Lewan, OT, Michigan

Lewan opted to return to the Michigan Wolverines for one more season last year. At the time, he was in the conversation as one of the top offensive tackle prospects in the 2013 class. With an extra season under his belt, he could challenge to be one of the few first selections in the 2014 NFL Draft.

The big question is whether NFL scouts will view Lewan as a legitimate left tackle in today's ever-quickening game. While Lewan is an excellent, powerful run blocker, he is only an average athlete. Given his height and weight, his body control is above-average which he uses well to shield defenders away from the pocket in pass protection. The big concern though is his ability to seal the edge against fast pass-rushing specialists. His change of direction is seriously lacking and could be abused by doubles moves.

Against the run, there are much fewer problems. He is very strong and when he puts his hands on a defender, he can push them back. Does an excellent job creating space where there should be none. With more consistent leverage, he could be the league's top right tackle for years (assuming he moves to the right).

Plays with a high intensity. Had a couple issues with losing his cool while on the field. A legit mauler with a mean streak. Offensive line coaches will love this guy's attitude.

Lewan projects as a mid-first round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
