Draft Rewind 2005 - Khalif Barnes - Oakland Raiders

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about KHALIF BARNES: Washington, 6056 305 4.99. Four-year starter. Team captain. Played both strong and weak tackle in career. Broke wrist after five games in 2004 and missed remainder of season. Long armed and athletic. Agility and balance to handle good defensive ends. Quick feet to pick up pass rush and to fold block. Overall quickness and functional strength at point of attack. Nimble feet and can adjust on the run when pulling. Lateral quickness to cut off slant moves. Bends his knees. Flashes explosive punch in pass protection. Can quick set, redirect, and keep a good base. Weaknesses in his game include inconsistent use of hands, lack of finish on pass and run blocks. Will play high and get leveraged back to quarterback. Has a breakdown in technique during game. Question intensity and desire to play the game. Will overextend and lose his feet. Low motor guy who appears to flash first round ability but consistently underachieves. Originally drafted by Jacksonville.
