Strong Points

Four-year starter. Plays with both strength and power. Can naturally roll his hips on contact and gets movement with run blocks. Good hand use for both run and pass blocking. Can set quickly in pass pro, punch and mirror. Good bender and anchors well. Has the athleticism to play in space and adjust on the move. Had a strong Senior Bowl and Combine.

Weak Points

Played tackle in college and will move inside once he gets to the NFL. His arms are too short for a tackle (32.5 inches). Played in a weaker conference.

The Way We See It

Forrest is a fifth-year senior and a four-year starter at Western Kentucky. Has played left tackle most of his career. Played in a weaker FBS conference but always played well when up against top competition (see: Alabama 2016). He is a fundamentally-sound player with size, strength and athleticism. Has shown the ability to dominate at the college level. Because of arm length and marginal tackle height, he will move inside to guard at the next level. Should start right away as a rookie and will become a very good NFL player.
