Tyler Steen: Scouting Report
Steen is a reliable run blocker and pass protector on the left side. At 6-foot-6 and 321 pounds, he has a good frame for the pros, and he is quick with his hands off the snap and stays engaged on the block with solid footwork. He has some technical skills to sort out, especially on run blocking, but showed consistent improvement during his time in Tuscaloosa. He’s quick and light on his feet, especially considering his size, and will be able to work as a backup and possibly eventual starter in the NFL.
