2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Josh LeRibeus, OG, Southern Methodist
LeRibeus has average size and strength. He was academically ineligible in 2010 but returned to the field in 2011. He plays tough with good techniques but lacks a real mean streak. He isn't particularly athletic (he ran a 5.37 40 yard dash) and will struggle to adjust to blitzing linebackers. He is a well-rounded interior lineman, the problem is just that there aren't any big strengths either. LeRibeus could work on his footwork by keeping his footwork short and choppy. His lateral movement is good for a guard of his size.
LeRibeus looks great when moving out in space to pull. He quickly identifies his block and can sometimes lay down two blocks to catapult the ball carrier.
Teams looking to add competitive depth should give him a shot in the later rounds. A solid combine performance could have him climbing the draft boards.
