- YearRS Senior
Strong Points: One of the better athletes at the tackle position this year. Light on his feet -- very good balance and can slide and recover. Good size and length, and can still get bigger. Plays with strength and power. Natural bender who has the bulk and girth to anchor. Quick hands, which he does a good job keeping inside. Easily adjusts on the move and gets to the second level.
Weak Points: Has had two injuries that caused him to miss considerable action, including all but the first game in 2016. Plays mostly from a two-point stance and doesn't fire off the ball in the run game
The Way We See It: Cajuste is a fifth-year senior and a two-and-a-half-year starter for West Virginia. Redshirted as a true freshman before starting six games the following year. Missed six games because of a knee injury. Missed all but the opener the next season with a knee injury. Started every game the last two seasons. Has the size, length, strength, feet and overall athleticism to become a very good NFL left tackle. Plays mostly from a two-point stance and can mirror, slide and recover. Very consistent pass blocker. Will need some work in the run game, as West Virginia is a pass-first offense and none of the linemen fire off the ball in the run game. Cajuste has a ton of upside but will need some time to adapt to NFL techniques. Few have his lateral agility, balance and quickness. It should be all in front of him after a period of adjustment. Could be one of the first tackles selected because of his excellent athletic traits.
