ANDY LEVITRE: Oregon State, 6025 305 5.35. Three-year starter. Aggressive and physical. Explosive punch in pass protection to stun pass rusher. Can play both guard and tackle spots in an emergency, but is best when he’s inside at guard in a confined area. May project to center for some teams. Works to sustain his blocks and finishes play. Stronger in the run game than pass protection at this time, but is good enough to start. Arms shorter than ideal. Mentally tough to concentrate and focus on the job. Consistency to make mental adjustments on the move. In the Senior Bowl he struggled with defenders that could recover quickly. His first step quickness was inconsistent and would set on the count at times. Can adjust on the run with proper depth and approach to kick out or log when pulling. Gives effort to hustle and make the second block. A functional athlete that could use more upper and lower body strength. Effective on the second level to seal off pursuit. OSR:32/ 47. Third/fourth round. (A-32 1/2, H-9 1/2, BP-23, 10-1.80).
