2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Tony Bergstrom, OT, Utah
Bergstrom does his best in tight spaces and usually gets himself into trouble by lunging or reaching with his upper half. He'll have to learn to keep his feet underneath him while also not getting too upright. Arm length is average and he'll need to use his power to his advantage more. He is physical, plays all the way to the whistle, yet just lacks that intensity every single play.
The footwork is what is holding him back. He stomps around a bit in open space. Not a natural or smooth pull blocker. Gets off the line pretty well, but just moves around inefficiently. A move to guard may be necessary. At guard, the footwork is a non-issue. The coaching can focus on his hand placement and bend which won't take as long to correct since he bends at his hips pretty well already.
Bergstrom isn't the ideal guard height, but there are plenty of tall quarterbacks out there that can see around him.
