Scouting Report: Cody O’Connell
School: Washington State Position: Offensive Guard Class: Senior Height: 6-9 Weight: 368 lbs Projected Draft Round: 3-5
A huge offensive guard prospect, that is much more versatile than his size might indicate. Not long ago, a guard this size would not be viable, as QB’s playing under center could get a passing lane blocked by his huge frame. As teams operate more in the shotgun, and QB’s work their way back into a pocket and throwing around linemen, his enormity is no longer a detriment. He is not just a road grader that can move defenders out of the way, but excels in pass protection as well.
