Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa
Grade: 7.3 (Grading Scale)
Strengths: Solid height and long arms – Bends very well, good athlete – Impeccably coached, has played in a pro-style system – Very good feet, mirrors well – Once he gains purchase with his long arms, the pass-rush is over – Plus awareness, picks up assignments well and rarely fooled by defense – Balanced blocker that excels in both pass protection and run blocking – Team leader.
Weaknesses: Lacks a natural mean streak which shows in his finishing – Seems to “space out” at times and allow his defender to pressure the QB – Gets a bit upright at times – Might need to add some strength, which is rare coming out of Iowa.
