Forrest Lamp NFL Draft Profile
Forrest Lamp-OL-Western Kentucky
Size: 6’4 305lbs
- High motor
Analysis: Forrest Lamp has a compact build but does not lack athleticism. He works his feet and hips into position before engaging. Secures block with chopping feet and quality positioning. Bends and looks for low-man leverage with hip thrust under him. Uses short, controlled punch in run game. Clever with hands in pass protection. Throws short, teaser jab with outside hand to entice rushers into premature hand fighting. Effective counter-puncher defending edge and clears his chest and re-sets hands if defender gets into him first. Rarely bull-rushed. Processes quickly when defense runs games up front.
- Lacks prototypical length
- Arms are short, which will make him move inside
Analysis: Forrest Lamp has an average frame and might not be able to add much more bulk to it. His lack of height and arm length will likely drive him inside to a guard. Expedited engagement on interior could prevent counter-punching style with hands. Will have to learn to keep hands in ready position and shoot them with tighter track into the frame. Positional blocker lacking NFL power as a drive-blocking guard.
What the scouts say: “He’s the real deal. If he can snap, you could get away with playing him all up and down the line. Great feet, strong, smart.”
