Biography: Three-year starter at left tackle awarded All-Conference honors after his senior in junior campaigns.
Positives: Relatively athletic college tackle who projects to guard at the next level. Plays low to the ground, makes good use of blocking angles, as well as body positioning. Stays square, keeps defenders in front of hi, and controls them once engaged at the point of attack. Shows strength in his upper body and good hand punch. Quickly sets in pass protection and above-average skill sliding out off the edge. Gets after blocks, very aware of assignments, and works well with teammates. Easily adjusts or redirects to defenders and effectively picks up the blitz.
Negatives: Lacks overall balance. Exploited by nimble, past opponents. Not a true finisher.
Analysis: Newhouse has been a very productive college tackle with the skills necessary to play guard on the NFL level. He must tighten up his frame and add strength to his lower body, yet he has potential in a variety of systems at the next level.
