2011 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JOE BARKSDALE: LSU, 6046 336 5.38. Three-year starter who is a long-armed, height, and size prospect. Moved from right tackle to left tackle in 2010. The theme at both positions is the inability to block edge speed rushers. Lacks the ability and quick twitch to quick set, change direction, and redirect with natural body control. Plays with knee bend and light feet which is a positive trait. Has a breakdown in technique to recover and shift his weight to block a defensive end. Lazy feet. Underachieves when playing the intense speed rushers. Question compete. Can block the pedestrian pass rushers by walling them off and running them up the field past the quarterback. Shows flashes of what he is capable of doing in both pass protection and run blocking. Also has breakdowns leaking through to the second level and taking bad angles to cut off linebackers. A leaner, not a popper in pass pro. Will overextend blocking in space and goes to the ground. Possesses the physical talent to play on Sunday, but question the “want to”. OSR:18/49. Fifth/sixth round. (A-35 1/2, H-9 3/4, BP-29, 10-1.86).
