Strong Points: Not very fast or sudden and has trouble being consistently executing blocks in space. Lacks the lateral agility to block wide speed consistently. Gives ground vs. bull rush and must improve lower-body power and play a bit lower.
The Way We See It: Very highly recruited out of high school, Ivey became a starter midway through his freshman year. He has starting experience at left guard and left tackle, his post the past two seasons. Ivey plays hard and is competitive, but he is limited. He is just an adequate athlete and doesn't have the feet to stymie wide speed and handle counter moves with regularity. He is better as a run blocker when he's in tight but struggles on the move. Ivey can't play left tackle at the NFL level; he'll have to be either a guard or a right tackle, and guard will ultimately be his best position. He will begin his career as a backup but positional versatility might help him dress on Sundays as a rookie. Ivey has starting potential down the road.
