*Explosive Lower Body Strength Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s vertical, broad jump and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

*Speed Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s 40-yard dash and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

*Flexibility Score: A score formulated from a prospect’s short shuttle, 3-Cone and mass density measured against all his positional peers since 1998.

Metric Recommendation: Luke Joeckel is probably a better fit at right tackle due to his height and arm length. However, he is simply not fast enough to be an elite guard or tackle. So you are paying for size and length vs. athleticism to really make a special lineman. I’d value Joeckel as a potential spot starter to backup guard or right tackle in the NFL. But this should serve as a reminder of the importance of every aspect of athleticism in projection.
