Strong Points: Athletic. Very quick feet and impressive body control. Good-to-very good lateral agility and recovery. Good balance. Long arms for a guy under 6-foot-4 (34 ¾"). Effective getting out to second level -- pulls, adjusts on the move and makes productive blocks in space.
Weak Points: Short for a tackle. Lacks the strength and power to play at a consistently high level. Strong punch, but he carries hands too low. Inconsistent movement generator in run game. Gives ground vs. power rushers.
The Way We See It: Edoga is similar in size and athleticism to Bears LT Charles Leno, a seventh-round selection in 2014 (246th overall) who has become a winning starter despite being one of few players at his position measuring less than 6-4 (6037 to be exact). Like Leno coming out of Boise State, Edoga lacks top-end functional strength. He has the length and feet to play tackle, but not the bulk and power. Edoga was strictly a right tackle for the Trojans but played some on the left at the Senior Bowl, to mixed results. He'll be best off moving inside to guard but still needs to get stronger. By no means is Edoga a sure shot, but his athleticism is too good to discount. A late pick with upside.
