2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
David Yankey, G , Stanford
Yankey anchored Stanford's offensive line last year and although he did play tackle at times in his collegiate career, most NFL scouts are in agreement his future is at guard. He doesn't quite have the necessary quickness or foot speed to handle edge rushers.
Great in-line run blocker and drives defenders off their mark with superior power. Uses and understands how to get leverage, but could be a bit more consistent with staying low later in games. Elite football instincts. High intelligence. Always on assignment and can quickly diagnose defensive fronts.
Good heavy punch when in pass protection. Must continue to improve against faster pass-rushers. A bit heavy footed at times and will lumber in open spaces. Excellent nasty streak. Vicious, mauler's attitude in the trenches.
Yankey projects as a late second or early third rounder in the 2014 NFL Draft.
