2013 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Luke Joeckel, OT, Texas A&M
Joeckel is a prototypical left tackle with choppy, fast feet. Not an especially powerful blocker, but has plus athleticism that can seal the edge against speed rushers. Great positioning and plays the angles well. Excellent in blitz pickup. Finds the extra man with his eyes and is consistently looking for stunts and twists.
Good, but not great in run blocking. Shows good fundamentals in his technique. Plays with a natural knee-bend, doesn't lose his balance, and keeps his feet active. Not a great drive blocker due to below-average hand positioning and so-so strength. Could benefit from playing in a zone blocking scheme where he can get out to a spot and use his forward momentum to gain positioning.
Joeckel has an aggressive, yet under control style of play. Still has room to add some weight and will need to work hard in the gym to add power through his core and lower body.
The 6'6", 310 lb. junior projects as a Top 5 selection in the 2013 NFL Draft.
