Ourlads' Profile:

2017 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DAN SKIPPER: Arkansas, 6095 317 5.45. Four-year starter from Arvada, CO. Played both tackle positions and offensive guard. First-team All-SEC and second-team All- America mention. Technically sound and surprisingly athletic for someone as tall and high-hipped as him. Keeps his hands inside, can mirror guys with ease when they line up across from him. Shows smarts and awareness. Very savvy. Knows angles, defensive schemes, and the opponent’s plan. Very effective in space as a run blocker. Can hang with quickness and is always under control. Leverage will always be a struggle. Couldn’t quite reach the edge against pass rushers that line up outside. Crosses his feet when dropping into deep pass protection. Will bail on his pass block setup too fast. Has been the leader of that offensive line for two years and was known as Mr. Reliable. Consistent techniques and awareness led him to rarely being flagged. While his ability won’t jump off the screen, the fact that he wins much more often than he loses will grab attention. Also blocked several field goals over his career. Projects as a versatile backup. Shrine Game notes: A tough physical mauler type in the run game. Mirrors and walls off pass rushers in pass protection. Struggles with two move players like teammate Deatrich Wise Jr. Good awareness to push the defender past the hole when on the move. Stays with his block. Fringe quickness. OSR:27/41. Fifth/sixth round. (A-33 5/8, H-10 3/8, BP-DNP, 10-1.90).
