Samuel Cosmi 2021 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Name: Samuel Cosmi
Weight: 314 lbs
Arm Length: 33”
Overall Rank: No. 36 overall
Position Rank: OT5
Strengths: A three-year starter at left tackle for the Longhorns, Cosmi has the athleticism and technique of an NFL starter. He’s incredibly agile in space and easily reaches defensive ends and linebackers in the run game. He’s poised enough to not get rattled at left tackle and slides with smooth feet. Cosmi’s punch timing and impact are solid. He’s stable in his pass set and doesn’t lose body control or balance. In a zone blocking scheme he’ll have very good value thanks to his first-and-second-level mobility. Cosmi still has a relatively lean frame that could still add mass and strength as he ages and develops.
Weaknesses: Cosmi can struggle at times to finish blocks in the passing game. He doesn’t explode out of his stance and get into his sets as quickly as he’ll need to in the NFL. He can become robotic and hesitant instead of reactionary. His punch accuracy tends to get wide. He needs to get a little stronger in the run game.
What I Love: Texas players get a reputation for being soft, but Cosmi plays with an alpha mentality in the run game. He’s among the most fiery of the 2021 offensive tackles.
