Ourlads' Profile:

2013 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about HUGH THORNTON: Illinois, 6032 313 5.11. Four-year starter who is athletic. Has experience at both guard and tackle. Started at left tackle but projects inside at guard. Has long arms and a thick body to absorb a bull rush. Lines up in a preset pass stance and can lock up edge pass rushers. Good use of hands. Seals the edge in the run game. Can get a good fit into a linebacker and drive them down the field with agility and balance. Finishes his blocks. Aggressive and physical. Plays with good balance. Drops his head on pass protection at times. Just needs to fine tune his use of hands and technique in the run game. Former high school two-time wrestling champion in Idaho and a third place finish in the Ohio State tournament. OSR:12/49. Fourth/fifth round. (A-34 1/8, H-10, BP-27, 10-1.74).
