BIO: Hard-working tackle who has shown tremendous progress the past two seasons. Explosive off the snap with a very nice first step. Strong, gets push up the field and collapses the pocket. Displays a terrific burst of closing speed and jolt at the point. Throws blockers aside or holds his ground against blocks. Solid athlete.
POSITIVES: Gets upright, does not play with leverage and lets opponents underneath him. Best straight ahead and has difficulty moving laterally. A bit stiff and has trouble redirecting.
NEGATIVES: An underrated prospect, Vickerson is an ever-improving player with a high upside. A solid one-gap run stuffer at the next level, he is a good fit in a one-gap scheme.
ANALYSIS: Moved into the starting lineup as a sophomore. Posted 42/7.2/2.5 last season after 18/6/2 as a junior.
