2023 Guide: What Ourlads’ NFL Scouting Services said about LUKE WYPLER:
Ohio State | H: 6030 W: 300 40: 5.06 A: 3158 H: 0958 W: 7718
Junior entry, two-year starter, Montvale, NJ. Honorable mention All-Big 10 in 2022 and 2021. Wypler is a stout, well-centered man in the middle that stays on his feet against both speed and power. The squatty frame and strong lower half pair well with the twitchy feet and fast hands. His techniques are smooth and repeatable from top to bottom. Once he gets that vital inside hand position, he won’t let go. Excels at staying square and playing patient. Trusts his plus-athleticism, comes across smart, and understands angles. An ideal fit for zone-heavy blocking schemes. Accurate punch and gets a death grip at the base of the shoulder pads of his man. Maintains quality knee bend, enabling him to stay square to the target. A lot of work from the leveraged position. Rapid fire footwork and easy acceleration in space. Keeps his head on a swivel, always finds work. Overall reach and range look short at times. Does not have the natural burst to make up for initial mistakes positionally. Gives too much ground in pass sets pre-contact. Will not get a big push against power linemen on inside runs. No college experience at guard. He is a blocker who will stay attached, show proper technique, and play at a consistent level that can be relied upon week to week.
OSR:20/37. 2nd/3rd round.
