Tariq Cole, OT, Rutgers #65

6056, 320, 5.32

Notes: From Long Beach, NY. Redshirted in 2014. Appeared in 8 games, primarily on special teams, but also saw some action at left guard, in 2015. Started 11 games at left tackle in 2016. Started all 12 games at left tackle in 2017; posted a 97.7 pass blocking efficiency grade by Pro Football Focus.

Positives: Nice size and strength. Moves his feet well for a man of his size. Proficient pass protector.

Negatives: Lunges and is too much of a waist-bender at times. Needs technique refinement.

Summary: Needs to sink his hips and bend his knees better, but will be a three-year starter in the Big Ten at left tackle and has a good overall NFL toolset.
