Strong Points

Experienced; has started 37 games during his career. Has been well coached and is fundamentally sound. Good initial quickness, has some snap on contact and gets movement with his run blocks. Good to second level. Very solid pass blocker who can mirror, use his hands and anchor. Good athlete with quickness and feet.

Weak Points

Came in at 303 pounds at the East-West Shrine weigh-in, might not be able to get much bigger. Arms were measured at 32.5". Has never played left tackle.

The Way We See It

Magnuson might not have some of the natural traits that some players in this draft have, but he is a very good and consistent performer. Is sound with his technique, strong, tough and physical. He's consistent as both a run and pass blocker. Has the ability to come in and start at right tackle or guard as a rookie. He appears to have the athleticism and might be able to play on the left side but we won't know that until he practices there. Arm measurement at the East-West was a bit short and is a concern but the real measurement will be at the Combine. Solid prospect.
