Louis Vasquez


With the 78th overall pick in the 2009 NFL Draft, the San Diego Chargers select Louis Vasquez, OG

Positives: Tall with large middle, but not overly so, and strong legs. Strong anchor in pass protection, rarely gets beat one-on-one. Has enough foot speed to get to linebackers or safeties at the second or third level. Dominates smaller defenders in space. Good, not great, punch. Willing to stay on his man for a few yards downfield on run plays. Inexperienced as a drive blocker, but looks capable of getting low and maintaining the line of scrimmage in his limited chances.

Negatives: Needs to prove he can transition from Tech's scheme to the NFL. Does not combo block much in wide split scheme. Is not quick to pick up late blitzers. Lacks explosiveness out of his stance and his pads are too high when his hand is down. Plays a bit upright in general, may lose leverage battles against stronger defensive tackles. Will lean forward and lose his balance when pass protecting for more than a couple of seconds.
