Ourlads' Analysis:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about JERALD HAWKINS: LSU, 6055 305 5.22. Junior entry from Baldwin, LA. Three-year starter. Experience at right tackle for 25 games and left tackle for 12 games. Moved from right to left tackle in 2015. Good arm length for the position. Good lateral quickness and balance. Active and light feet to hook the edge of the defense. Plays with a good base, stays square, and works the pass rusher up the field. Good zone blocking tackle in a pro run-oriented offense. Plays out of a three-point stance. Good awareness to pick up outside-in stunts and square up the defender. Will waist bend at times, especially against Miles Garrett, the Texas A&M speed rusher. Hawkins needs more core functional strength to hold up on Sundays at tackle. Has the frame to gain more good weight. Has some technique breakdowns with his hands and also loses his knee bend. Will get driven back by leverage bull rush ends. Struggles with two move defenders. Has the talent to play on Sundays, but will need developmental time to clean up his game. OSR:37/47. Third/ fourth round. (A-34 1/4, H-9 5/8, BP-23, 10-1.89).
