2011 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Derek Sherrod, OT, Mississippi State
Sherrod stands at 6'5'' and 305 pounds. He has a great agility for a man of his size and has been clocked as fast as 5.08 in the 40-yard dash. He is fundamentally sound, but struggled slightly against elite pass-rushers--whom he will see plenty of in the NFL. Sherrod has been a staple at left tackle for Mississippi State and he may be asked to protect his quarterbacks' blind side for years to come at the next level. He will surely start out on the right side, but a move to the left is likely at some point. Anything lower than a late first-round selection in the 2011 draft would be a major surprise.
