Player Description:

Name: Mekhi Becton

Position: Offensive Line

College: Louisville

Uniform Number: #73 Class: Junior Height: 6'7

Weight: 369 lbs



Strengths:

Becton is a king-sized tackle, who possesses overwhelming natural strength. Considering his size, he is very quick out of his stance and his lateral movement in pass protection is excellent. Does a fantastic job at using his feet and lateral movement as a means of giving pass rushers little to no room on the edge. Becton's possesses very long arms, which he uses to recover if caught off balance. As a run blocker, he consistently comes hard out of his stance, and uses his size and strength to impose his will. When run blocking, has shown the ability to reach the second level. Becton made notable improvements with his hand placement, which has made him that much more efficient as a blocker.




Weaknesses:


With his natural strength, Becton often uses it to compensate for his technical flaws. Coming out of his stance, Becton has a habit of standing up and keeping his pad level high; this could work against him at the next level despite his strength. In run blocking situations, Becton does not do a good job at setting his feet and establishing a comfortable 'sit'. With his initial punch, Becton often finds himself off balance; this could be attributed to playing too high and not bending at the knees.
