Dan Feeney NFL Draft Profile
Size: 6’4 304lbs
What you need to know: Dan Feeney is a four-year starter and two-time team captain, Feeney has been the consistent anchor along an Indiana offensive line that helped to produce NFL running backs Tevin Coleman and Jordan Howard. Feeney is a quality zone blocker with an ability to pull and lead the charge, but he might lack the play strength to become a reliable base blocker. His intelligence and ability to operate in space and protect the quarterback could make him an early starter with a ceiling of above-average NFL guard or center.
- Decent arm length
- Light feet
- Solid in pass protection
- Best zone blocker in the draft
Analysis: Dan Feeney is a tough guy with a banger mentality. Decent arm length for the position. Above-average pass protector on interior. Feet are light enough to slide quickly in either direction to protect the edge in pass-pro. Very aware of twists and blitzes. Shoots a strong punch that can jar gap shooters out of the gap and can put a sting into both twisters as he snaps and catches. Zone-blocking specialist with desired lateral quickness. Takes well-planned routes up to second-level targets on difficult backside cutoffs. Rarely commits early to a block. Waits until he’s in proper position. Plays with redirect power in his upper body. Will take it to the whistle and looks to finish with some menace. Effective blocker in screen game.
- Not enough knee bend
- Too high off the snap
- Some durability questions
Analysis: Dan Feeney carries his weight in his upper body and lacks some sand in his pants. He pops upright after the snap. Poor pad level and a narrow base creates contact-balance issues. Shows a lack of knee bend that makes change of direction in space a task. Is a bit straight-linish in his approach. Missed all of 2013 with a foot injury and missed four games due to effects from a concussion sustained early in the season.
