Strong Points: Exceptional size. Good-to-very good athlete for his size and position. Very long arms. Strong and powerful. Stays on his feet. Sets quickly in pass protection, cutting off wide speed. Anchors well vs. bull rushers. Keeps hands inside. Pulls and gets into space with proficiency. Slides and recovers very well with his quick feet and balance.
Weak Points: Intensity level seems to be lacking from play to play. Not the run blocker he should be given his size and power. Gets stalemated too often.
The Way We See It: Third-year junior who's highly talented and at times looks like a dominant left tackle. Consistently saw top competition in the SEC. Has all the natural traits to play left tackle in the NFL -- and play it well. Little's problem: although he's capable of dominating play after play, he doesn't. Something is missing. Just seems to be going through the motions at times. Questionable overall competitive nature. Based on his traits and some of his tape, he will get drafted very high, but I'm not sure he will fulfill his potential. Perhaps the jump to the NFL will kick-start his motor. He should get drafted higher than my grade.
