2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Riley Reiff, OT, Iowa
Reiff has to prove from now until the draft that he can be a left tackle. There are concerns about his footwork and lateral quickness. If teams feel he can only play on the right, he'll fall rapidly down draft boards.
In his defense, he's still developing and has room to grow and add more muscle. Coaches will need to continue to develop his mechanics when moving in space, but he makes up for it with good use of hands. He can get under a defender and really neutralize them instantly. He really does a good job of staying after guys and getting in their head because of his relentless style of play. A big problem scouts may have is whether or not he can be a zone blocker. This is just one of those things where people need to see more tape before making a decision on that. A lot of teams use a lot of zone blocking on run plays, so struggling with that would be a big problem.
