    Strong Points: Position versatility -- started games at both tackle and guard in college. Good strength. Plays hard and consistently looks to finish. Strong punch. Generates movement with run blocks. Doesn't give ground in pass protection.

    Weak Points: Poor athlete. Merely average bend, which leads to overextending. Marginal foot quickness -- not an asset in space. Durability concerns -- missed time with injuries in each of past three seasons, including all but eight games from 2016-17.

    The Way We See It: A former 5-star recruit who never lived up to that rating in college, Tucker originally enrolled at Stanford, where he started every game in 2015. He played both tackle and guard in 2016 but missed time with a lower-body injury before sitting out all of 2017. He was a graduate transfer last season to Arizona State, where he made starts at both tackle positions and guard. Tucker is big and strong, but a limited athlete. He lacks the feet quickness and lateral agility to play tackle in the NFL but -- if healthy -- has the power to find a home at guard. Obviously, his medical will be important, but if it checks out he could be a late pick.
