2010 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Kevin Haslam, OT, Rutgers
Rutgers' offensive tackle Kevin Haslam is often overshadowed by fellow lineman Anthony Davis, but Haslam is certainly an NFL caliber player as well. It took some time for Haslam to find his spot on the offensive line after redshirting in 2005 and only playing in four games in 2006. Even after beginning the 2007 season as a starter, Haslam was not consistently playing in the same spot. He started at right guard, but he also spent some time at left tackle. In 2008 the story was the same. Haslam started out at left guard before moving to right tackle. Haslam has stayed at right tackle, but his versatility will be a big plus come draft time. His 6-7 frame gives him plenty of options. He could certainly be a tackle in the NFL if he could put on some more weight. Listed at 295 pounds, Haslam definitely has room to gain weight, but he has yet to do so. If he stays under 300 pounds, he would most likely be a guard in the NFL. Haslam has pretty good footwork for a man his size, but that may be in part due to his lack of weight. If he can keep his footwork strong and bulk up a little bit in the process, Haslam could be a great lineman in the NFL (especially since he can play just about anywhere on the line). 2/21 Update: Haslam's versatility continues to be his best asset. He is probably one of the top 20 offensive tackles in this class, but there is a pretty wide gap once you get past the top six or seven. And that will probably leave Haslam as a late round selection barring some decent workouts between now and draft time.
