Draft Rewind 2009 - Antoine Caldwell - Houston Texans

What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about ANTOINE CALDWELL: Alabama, 6033 307 5.27. Four-year starter. Versatile enough to play both guard and center. Durable and smart. Must work to bend his knees because he has long legs. Needs more functional strength. Question inside awareness at times. Struggled to adjust on inside blitz pickup. Demonstrates ability to recover. A good athlete with a thick lower body. Stays on his feet and occupies defender if he plays with good knee bend. If he gets high he can get knocked back and bulled over. Effective to slip through to the second level and cuts off linebackers. Good balance and foot movement in pass protection if he keeps his head up. Does both the conventional and shotgun snaps. Lacks strength to drive block in the run game. Position wall off blocker. OSR:26/47. Fourth/ fifth round. (A-34, H-10 1/2, BP-23, 10-1.78).
