Report Prepared By Lance Zierlein
TSV videos provided by Draft Breakdown
2:25 Wide base, arms locked out and DE locked down
2:47 Proper usage of inside hand with first contact and then handles spin move back inside
4:48 Misses two moving targers on the 2nd level in run game
4:49 Loses his balance because he fails to get his weight and feet in proper position
9:54 Gains ground, bends and executes cut block with proper technique
Ja'Wuan James has been a rock at right tackle for the Vols starting all 49 games during his college career. James has a sturdy frame, long arms and prototypical height for the tackle position.
As a pass protector, James is limited against edge speed due to leg stiffness and his average athleticism, but when he gets his target squared up and his arms extended, it can be lights out.
James doesn't bend particularly well which means he will always play higher than you like and will be inconsistent with power because his leverage will be an issue. James plays with good hustle, but I see him having issues on the 2nd level as the game and talent continues to get faster.
