With Pro Days slowing to a crawl, many NFL teams had a chance to watch the action at Mississippi…
Prospect Profile: David Stewart
Ht: 6-6.5 Wt: 314 40: 5.25 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Three-year starter who saw action with the first team as a freshman. Consistently graded out as Mississippi State's top offensive lineman.
Positives: Hard-working blocker coming off a terrific senior campaign. Nasty lineman who works to bury opponents. Stout, anchors at the point and easily turns defenders off the line. Strong, yet at the same time intelligent, and works well with teammates. Effectively uses blocking angles to protect the quarterback, and at the same time, drives opponents off the line, opening holes for the running game. Bends his knees blocking with leverage, powerful in the upper body and displays excellent arm extension with the ability to control defenders once engaged at the point. Surprising skill pulling across the line of scrimmage and blocking in motion. Jolts defenders and explosive at the point.
Negatives: Not light on his feet, lacks adjustment and exploited by nimble opponents. Cannot redirect to defenders on the second level. Marginal blocking range.
Analysis: Looking like a different player as a senior, Stewart took his game to another level and is now a prime strong-side tackle prospect for the next level. Possesses the nasty demeanor coaches want, yet at the same time, plays with the intelligence and self-control needed to be successful in the NFL. Moved himself into the draft's first day and could quickly find himself as a starter at the next level.
