Will Rackley
Round 3, Pick 76
Position: G
Class:  4Sr
School: Lehigh
Conference: Patriot League
HT: 6-3.5
WT: 309
40 Time: 5.21
Biography: Four-year starter awarded all-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign.

Positives: "Fundamentally sound college tackle who projects to guard at the next level. Bends his knees, blocks with a wide base, and gets leverage on opponents. Patient in pass protection, works his hands, and stays square. Keeps defenders in front of him, shuffles his feet, and quickly gets off the edge. Makes exceptional use of angles and body positioning. Keeps his head on a swivel and shows good overall awareness. Shows the ability to adjust against defenders and is terrific in pass protection."

Negatives: Initially moves defenders off the line but cannot finish blocks. Lacks classic footwork for a left tackle. Not light on his feet blocking in motion.

Analysis: "Rackley has been a consistent performer on the college level and offers potential at guard in the NFL. He has the size, growth potential, and skill to eventually develop into a starter at the next level."

Projection: 3rd
