2014 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about Cyrus Kouandjio: Alabama, 6066 322 5.59. Two-year starter. Played in eight games as a true freshman. Alabama’s left tackle had an up and down year, but is oozing with talent. Locks on defender with his big hands and long arms. Aggressive in the run game and moves his feet well as a pass protector. Snaps up quickly in pass pro. Doesn’t drop his hands. Good lateral quickness to seal the edge. Can be a road grader in base or down blocks. Good cut off angles to second level. Had a rough go in the Sugar Bowl when Oklahoma put a small speed linebacker on his outside edge and he gave up two sacks. Has good initial arm push. Good balance and use of hands. Plays with a strong two-arm extension as a pass protector. Maintains his balance when sliding with the pass rusher. Has the physical tools to dominate in the run game and as a pass protector but has technique breakdowns. Appears more athletic on tape than he tests. Ranked 33 out of 40 at the Combine. Question mental frame of mind at times to concentrate and focus on the job. Will get holding or movement penalties to slow down a drive. May be a right tackle only because of his struggles with edge speed as a pass protector. Plays high in the run game. Struggles with two move players. Will waist bend in the pass and run games if his feet get lazy. OSR:33/40. First/second round. (A-35 5/8, H-10 1/4, BP-21, 10-1.93).
