'06 NFL Draft Watch: Utah State

Posted Oct 2, 2005

A struggling program, Utah State moves from independent status into the WAC. The team has a pair of free agent senior prospects.

Scouting the WAC:  Utah State

Left tackle Donald Penn is a nasty blocker who plays with leverage. Displaying footwork in pass protection, Penn effectively uses body positioning to seal defenders from the action or turns opponents off the ball. Stiff, he lacks adjustment and is best in a small area.

John Chick is an undersized pass rusher who displays good range and a quick change of direction. Making plays up and down the one of scrimmage, Chick must learn to play in space to have a shot at the next level.
