Broaddus: Scouting Report For Newly Signed OT Weems

Posted Dec 6, 2012

Here is my view of Darrion Weems offensive tackle the Cowboys signed from the Denver Broncos practice squad on Wednesday: 

Games Studied: 2012 preseason New England Patriots against Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints. 

  • Played left tackle in both games.
  • Nice extension in the way he blocks in the running game. Has length and hand placement.
  • Athletic feet for reach blocks and backside cut offs. Has quick feet.
  • Will play to the whistle, tries to finish blocks.
  • Plays with some initial quickness off the snap. Gets into his block.
  • Able to adjust feet in pass set, helps him get in position to complete block.
  • Will need to work on lower body power to sit down on rusher.
  • Tends to get over extended on his set because he doesn’t have enough upper body strength yet. Will play over the tops on his feet but can recover.
  • Only saw on the ground one time when got tripped up blocking Vinny Curry of the Eagles on a cut off block.
  • Played out of a two point stance and with hand on the ground as well.  Is use to pass blocking from college (Oregon).
  • If can develop strength I like the length and feet. Very similar to Jeremy Parnell in the way he played on tape.
