2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: DeMarcus Love



Strengths:
  • Four years experience against top competition
  • Height, weight and bulk teams look for
  • Good feet and movement
  • Tough and durable
  • Has played three positions on the line
  • Solid run blocker
  • Long arms and strong hands
  • Plays with a mean streak
  • Capable of highlight reel block





    Weaknesses:
  • Balance and leverage issues
  • Will struggle against edge rushers
  • Can be beaten inside
  • Gets caught lunging

    Summary: DeMarcus Love took his lumps at the Senior Bowl. It is a plus that he has previous experience at guard before moving to left tackle under a new head coach and offensive system. He also played both sides. However, it looks like he might be heading back inside as a pro. Versatility is still a coveted trait in the NFL and he should be able to contribute at guard or tackle on the right side.

    Player Comparison: Robert Gallery. Comparisons are always tough, but let me explain this one. Gallery had high expectations and had people talking about him being a left tackle for "the next 10 years." How many times do we hear that in draft circles? Love's hype fell off prior to the actual draft so he will not go No. 2 overall as Gallery did, but moving to guard, he could thrive in that spot as Gallery has.
