Ourlads' Profile:

2015 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about AJ CANN: South Carolina, 6026 313 5.45. Four-year starter from Bamberg, SC. All-America guard who has started the second most games in South Carolina history. He is a two year team captain. Wins a lot of one on one battles with initial movement and power, consistently firing out of his stance and getting his hands on the defender. He is at his best as a straight ahead, power run blocker. Struggles with speed and quickness in space. The further away he gets from the line of scrimmage, the more his footwork and lack of reaction speed are exposed. Shows dominant traits but will need to become a better athlete if he wants to stay at left guard. Thick but athletic and powerful with long arms. Can plant his feet and anchor his position against the biggest of defenders. Shows the initial pop out of his stance to stifle his defender and drive him out of a play. Can lock on with his hands inside and keep his feet moving forward. Creates power with his combination of speed and strength. Good knee bend with a low base and upright torso in pass protection. Gets the initial punch and can control pass rushers with his hands. Shows a lack of mobility in space and has a hard time reacting to late movement. Struggles to adjust his weight on the move. Not as effective as a pulling lead blocker. Will be slow to reach his spot in space. Medical exclusion at Combine, left calf strain. Third/fourth round. (A-32 5/8, H-10 1/4, BP-26, 10-1.89).
