2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Nate Potter, OT, Boise State
Potter has above-average footwork and can slide and glide off the snap. He shows good range and can seal the edge well against top notch athletes. Potter has a good knee-bend and is a natural at keeping a good center of gravity. He's not a hefty guy, so he'll need to show a better base when dealing with bull rushers.
In zone-based schemes, he'll be a natural. For teams that use a lot of drive-blocking, he will need work and some added bulk. The key for him will be adding good muscle (especially in his bottom half), so he can better explode his hips when pushing defenders around.
Some teams may disagree, but Potter isn't a true left tackle prospect. He'll end up becoming a solid pro. He lacks the strength and attacking style to end up reliable starter so he needs to adjust to a professional style of play.
