Ourlads' Profile:

2020 Guide: What Ourlads' Scouting Services said about MEKHI BECTON: Louisville, 6073 364 5.12. Junior entry, three-year starter, Highland Springs, VA. First-team All ACC in 2019 as the team’s starting left tackle. Has played on both sides of the line and could project to either in the NFL. His game depends on the elite length and upper body explosion that can take over a one-on-one battle right away. A rare physical force who gets movement at both the point of attack and in space the second he comes in contact with the defender. His issues are partially technique-based which can be corrected but there are also movement issues. It can be hard for a player of his height to adjust with balance and precision and even his length can’t hide those issues in pass protection. His sometimes-inaccurate hands aren’t backed up by other physical attributes and techniques which gives him a rather large buyer-beware label. Boom or bust prospect who turns 21 just days prior to the draft. A mountain among hills. Stands tall, wide, and thick. Will likely be the biggest player on the field at all times. Explosive hands that will send defenders flying. Has created a highlight reel minutes long that consists of him putting defenders on the ground. A physical force that creates rare push upon contact. Effective both in line and in space as a run blocker. Will move downfield and look for work. Swallows a lot of space with just a few strides. Pushes himself up the edge well in pass protection. Can outreach anyone and it is over for the defender if he gets his hands inside first. Feet are light enough to protect the edge and his size can make up for some mistakes. Gets sloppy out of his stance. Has the occasional hitch that stems from a poor three-point stance. Struggles to get and keep his chest up, which puts him at a slight initial disadvantage. Success rate as a cut blocker is very low. Needs more attention and consistency when it comes to knee bend and leverage at his size. Body language, control, and conditioning are all issues. OSR:3/41. First round. (A-35 5/8, H-10 3/4, BP-23, 10-1.78).
