Strong Points

Spriggs is a four year starter for Indiana. He is tall with length (34 1/8” arms). He has excellent weight room strength (31 reps). On the field, he is tough and competitive and looks to finish. He is a very good athlete who can change direction and has very good balance. At 301, he can still get bigger and will also get stronger as he physically matures. Good hand use, with a good punch and keeps his hands inside. Flashes good bend and shows he can adjust on the move. Effective run and pass blocker. Good mirror skills, can slide and recover versus counter moves.

Weak Points

Can get tall at times and not always play with the bend he has. Playing from a two point stance he doesn’t generate the explosiveness he needs in the run game. He can get good position and wall off but not consistently get movement. As athletic as he is, he will miss some open field blocks.

The Way We See It

A four-year starter at left tackle who is tough and competitive. Plays well in their scheme but he has limitations. Just an adequate athlete who lacks top COD and recovery quicks. Not a bender and has a tendency to play tall. Still, he has tools to work with. Needs to get stronger and has the intangibles. Will be a right tackle or guard in the NFL. There are guys like him starting in the league. Will start off as a backup but has starter potential down the road.
