Strong Points

Very tall with very long arms (35 5/8 inches). Has the frame to get to 300-plus. Adequate play strength but good weight room strength (23 bench-press reps). Good to really good athlete with speed, quickness and change of direction. Shows dominating ability versus a lower level of competition. Able to 2-gap FCS level O-linemen. Had a good Senior Bowl and a very good Combine. Excellent upside.

Weak Points

Played at a lower level of competition. Needs to improve his lower body strength and bulk. Still raw technique-wise and doesn't have the speed or burst to "burn" the edge. Shows a tendency to get tall and give up his body. More of a reactor than an anticipator at this time.

The Way We See It

Is a player on the come. Few have the natural physical traits that Kpassagnon displays. He is tall, long, athletic and has upper body strength. Needs to add some bulk and strength to his lower body. Is still learning the game and is raw but when he gets fully acclimated he could be a force in the league. Should be just a role player as a rookie but by Year 2 he could become a good starter. By his third year, he could be a dominating player in the league. His current play says Round 4, but he should get drafted higher because of his upside. Can be a left end in a 4-3 or a 5-tech in a 30-front.
