Ja'Wuan James, OL , Tennessee

James is quickly moving up draft boards thanks to his ideal frame and left tackle potential. He has some deficiencies as a run blocker; however, the former Tennessee offensive lineman performed very well against the SEC's best pass rushers.

Moves well for a man of his size. Quick, choppy footwork. Sets the edge quickly and smoothly. Doesn't allow defenders to get their hands on him easily. Redirects traffic out of the play and looks to smother defenders to the whistle. Really gets after guys every play. Good pre-snap recognition. Awareness during play is lacking a bit and needs to learn to not put all of his vision/focus on one player. Average instincts in feeling the integrity of the pocket.

Sets too high in pass protection. Must improve his knee bend. Good lateral mobility. Average power and could afford to add more bulk in his lower half. Susceptible to getting beat by faster players at the second level. Too often plants his feet when engaged in a block. Needs to keep his lower body churning.

James projects as a late second round pick in the 2014 NFL Draft.
