BIOGRAPHY: Part-time starter the past three seasons at both left and right tackle.

POSITIVES: Rutledge has the size and build to be a guard at the next level, yet he must significantly pick up the tempo of his play for any chance of getting out of a camp this summer.

NEGATIVES: Lacks the dominant lower body and does not get much movement run blocking. Rumbles about the field and struggles with his footwork in pass protection. Does not play with great awareness.

ANALYSIS: College tackle best in a small-area. Quickly sets up in pass protection, immediately gets his hands into defenders, and displays good punch. Bends his knees, stays square, and seals defenders from the action. Fluid moving out to the second level and flashes a nasty streak.

PROJECTION: FA
