    4th Round Pick 142 2021 NFL Draft Royce Newman G Mississippi

    Overview

    Has the ability and experience to be considered at guard or tackle. Hand placement and technique as a run blocker are generally good. He has the athleticism to handle stretch plays and long pulls effectively. He can redirect his weight and adjust to moving targets as a second-level guard (2019) and showed improvement in his pass protection fundamentals in 2020. Newman stays connected and sustains blocks, but will struggle against strong two-gappers inside. He looks like a Day 3 prospect, but his position versatility and movement skills could give him a leg up in future roster battles.

    Strengths

    Has starting experience at guard and tackle.
    Comes off ball with choppy settle step in run-up to contact.
    Accurate, strong hands give him early advantages.
    Strikes with good base width and balance.
    Strains into arm extension and works to sustain blocks.
    Above-average reactive athleticism versus stunts.
    Consistent finding footing on reach plays and gets move blocks sealed.
    Agility to adjust and tag moving targets in space.
    Pass slides looked smooth and natural.
    Above-average footwork to mirror and defend his edges.
    Stiff, inside hand lands in the same spot every time.

    Weaknesses

    Up and down when faced with size and power.
    Two-gappers had success in standing him up.
    Has tendency to let go of second-hand contact and try to long-arm.
    Candidate to be bull-rushed if he's not first with his punch.
    Needs to guard against over-sets.
    Base has a tendency to get too wide in pass pro.
    Wide, undisciplined hands when rushers charge him.

    Not a bad pick, was hoping IDL in this spot, but he gives us depth at both guard and tackle. I'm wondering who is projected to be where. I'm guessing Myers at center, Jenkins at guard, but he can play anywhere, but assuming back at LG. But then we have guys like Turner who I'd guess starts the season at LT the goes to the right side when Bak is back. But we have Newman, Runyan, Stepaniak all as G/T. Also Patrick who is G/C.

    I'd go B- on this pick.

    that's why this pick confuses me. I get he can play both guard and tackle but, they took Runyan last year who looked good in limited snaps Stepaniak who is supposed to be this athletic freak who could be a star if developed, Lucas Patrick unless they plan on cutting him and ther eis another guard in there somewhere I can't think of right off the top of my head other than Jenkins. there were other needs to be filled and they took another luxury. if they wanted a tackle there were numerous tackles still on the board
