Alex Leatherwood 2021 NFL Draft Scouting Rep…

Name: Alex Leatherwood Position: Offensive Tackle College: Alabama Height: 6’5” Weight: 312 lbs Overall Rank: No. 69 overall Position Rank: OT11 Strengths: Leatherwood was a three-year starter in the best program in the nation, including one season at right guard and two at left tackle blocking for top-10 overall quarterbacks. NFL teams can be confident that he’s faced NFL-caliber players and dealt with NFL-caliber coaching and expectations. As a result of his experience, Leatherwood has excellent on-field awareness and understands angles in the run game. He’s able to use his above-average athleticism, paired with good processing, to routinely put himself in an advantageous position on the field. Aggression in the run game comes naturally, allowing him to get out of his stance with explosiveness and get right into the defender's frame to start the fight. Leatherwood is comfortable as a pass protector, getting depth in his set with ease and winning the initial race to the edge. Leatherwood has good overall length and enough mass on his frame to wash out speed rushers on the edge and anchor versus power. The overall competitive toughness is clear on film and he’s not going to back down from a challenge in the NFL.
