2022 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about AUSTIN DECULUS:
LSU, 6050 321 5.08. Four-year starter, Mamou, LA. Saw all his snaps at right tackle. Has been a mainstay on an offensive line that has been one of the best performing groups in the nation over the past three years. Does not have standout talent or a dominating skill set, but it is hard to find a lot of bad beats on tape. He is just big enough and just powerful enough to hide the significant agility issues. Has heavy feet and stiff ankles, however his upper body strength and overall mass is hard to cleanly get by. There is a strong athletic base here, thus the notion there is some untapped potential lives on. Has work to do, but there is a lot of pro-readiness to his game already. Can be a multiple year project that could end up being a quality starter in the league. Mammoth frame that plays both wide and long. Understands how to maximize his radius. Powerful hands with a strong lockout game. Shows a strong grip when his hands are accurate. Keeps the base wide enough to somewhat make up for movement limitations. A hard guy to get around when he is quick out of his stance. Has enough athleticism to warrant the idea of him playing faster once he refines his technique. Strong anchor against the bull rush. Plays too slow. Lacks agility and easy bend and it is seen often in pass protection. Hands do not always hit the point. Upper/lower body do not play in complete cohesion. Too many losses up the edge against speed.
OSR:22/51. Seventh round/PFA. (A-34 3/8, H-9 1/4, BP-24, 10-1.78).
