 Wesley Britt Grade: 3.76
 Position: OT
 Class: Sr
 School: Alabama
 Conference: SEC
 Ht., Wt.: 6-8, 314

  Selected by: San Diego Chargers
  Round 5, pick 28 (164 overall)

BIO: Moved into the starting rotation as a redshirt freshman and awarded All-Conference honors last year as a senior.

POSITIVES: Big, tough lineman with an excellent feel for blocking. Quickly picks up assignments, patient in pass protection and works hard until the whistle blows. Anchors at the point, displays excellent awareness, always looking for someone to hit. Effectively uses body positioning and blocking angles to seal the edge and protect the passer. Outstanding hand technique and extends to keep defenders away. Blocks with knee bend and works to get leverage on opponents. Immediately sets up in pass protection, jolts opponents run blocking and quick in all aspects. Tough and plays while injured.

NEGATIVES: Not overly agile and at times looks downright unathletic. Lacks adjustment, not comfortable in space, nor is he a dominant drive blocker. Suffered bone injuries in both legs as a junior, then again in the Senior Bowl last January.

ANALYSIS: Working hard for 60 minutes and using all his assets to a maximum, Britt has been a productive left tackle on the college level the past four years. While some debate his ability to stay at that spot in the NFL, few question his potential as a starting blocker down the road on the strong side. Solid selection in the middle of round two.

PROJECTION: Late Second Round
