2012 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about TOM COMPTON: South Dakota, 6047 314 5.06. Four-year starter who was red-shirted as a freshman. An athletic tackle who plays with natural knee bend, base, and flexibility. Has the natural talent to make a team. Played left tackle for the Coyotes. Graded out as the third most athletic tackle out of 48 at the Combine. That being said, he needs technique work in his overall game. He plays with good leverage and power at the FCS level, but will need to adjust to the edge speed of the NFL. Powerful on down blocks. Good effort on second level blocks. Has the ability to play flat-footed with good flexibility. Good range and foot quickness, but needs work on his overall footwork as a pass protector. Will need to get more overall body strength. A developmental tackle or guard who has been durable over his career. He had knee surgery in high school however. OSR:3/48. Fourth/fifth round. (A-34, H-10, BP-20, 10-1.74).
