Greg Little, OT, Mississippi #74

6051, 325, 5.23

Notes: Full name is Gregory LaMar Little. Native of Allen, TX. Was a high school teammate of Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray. His late father, Derrick, who was shot and killed in June 2016, played linebacker at South Carolina and was a sixth-round draft pick by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 1989. His death remains unsolved. Played in every game with 5 starts at left tackle as a true freshman in 2016. Dropped about 20 pounds going into his sophomore season. Started every game at left tackle in 2017-18. Played in every game (36) during his three seasons at Ole Miss and started 29.

Positives: Naturally large frame with size, bulk and long, powerful arms. Comes off the ball quickly. Strong, physical hand punch. Shows explosiveness as a run blocker and can turn and bury defenders. Flashes a mean streak and seems to dominate at will as a run blocker. Very good athlete for his size. Bends his knees and generates power and leverage. Good movement skills and lateral agility. Can move downfield and work to the second level effectively. Effective in the open field and seals off the edge nicely. Fluid pass protector. Wide base and difficult to get around on pass protection. Completely stonewalls defenders at times. Good kick-slide and excellent mirror-and-slide on pass protection. Able to adjust to movement and stunts. Rarely physically defeated. Has been very durable, missing only a handful of snaps his entire college career.

Negatives: Still needs some work on run blocking. Will overextend and lunge at times. Is vulnerable to secondary moves and needs overall technique refinement and better consistency. Doesn't always go for the throat and finish on every single play.

Summary: Can still use some technical refinement, but a natural NFL left tackle with significant upside, especially in a zone blocking scheme. Can start right away and quickly ascend to Pro Bowl level. Could be the cream of the crop if he becomes more consistently nasty.
