AJ Cann- Guard- South Carolina
Size: 6’3 313lbs

 

  • Good leverage
  • Thick frame/wide base
  • Strong
  • Experienced- 4 year starter
  • Drive blocker in run game
  • Good inside hand placement

Analysis: AJ Cann is a solid guard prospect who comes off the ball low, winning most leverage battles.  Cann keeps his legs wide, preventing defenders from knocking him off balance.  Solid in the run game, Cann will drive his defender back, clearing lanes for the running back.  He was a leader of the South Carolina offense and is a starting caliber guard at the next level.

Need to improve:

  • Trouble reaching 2nd level
  • Weak punch in pass protection
  • Lunges

Analysis: An experienced four-year starter, Cann had struggled at times in pass protection.  His lack of an authoritative punch out of his stance allows pass rushers to explode off the ball towards the quarterback.  Too many times on tape Cann would lunge to block defensive lineman, causing balance issues and easily getting beaten at the point of attack.

Round prediction: 2nd round
