Eben Britton OT 6'6 309 Arizona Jr. 5.16

By: Robert Davis

Britton earned a starting nod as a redshirt freshman and became a three year starter for the Wildcats. He earned 2nd team all Pac 10 honors as a sophomore, and 1st team honors as a junior.

Strengths

Britton is a solid tackle prospect, that may bring the ability to play both sides in the NFL. He is a solid athlete, that sets up very quickly in his stance. He has good footwork and slides well laterally in pass protection. He uses his hands very well and doesn’t allow defenders to get into his chest and push him around. Britton is very tough, and will scratch and claw to get the job done. He will not quit until the whistle blows.

Weaknesses

Britton is not very stout at the point of attack. He has strong hands and long arms to keep defenders away in pass protection, but lacks the bulk and power to do much in the running game. He can be pushed around and this is an area that he must work on. He has to get stronger to reach his potential.

Future

Britton could have used another year in college to get stronger. Had he done so, he could have been looking at being one of the first tackles selected next year. With his entry into this years draft, he is in a battle to be at best, the #5 tackle taken. He did a solid job establishing himself as no worse than the #6 tackle in the draft, and will battle for first round consideration as the draft approaches. If he doesn’t land in round one, he should not last very long into the second round.
