Isaiah Wynn Draft Profile

Isaiah Wynn draft profile

Get to know Isaiah Wynn:

Wynn’s short, stout, powerful build and mobility make his NFL future at guard, but his versatility has helped him meet the team’s need at left tackle. He was a second-team All-American and first-team All-SEC selection in 2017, starting all 15 games on the outside to lead the way for the team’s excellent running backs and protect freshman quarterback Jake Fromm. Wynn was a four-star recruit and top-10 guard prospect nationally out of Lakewood High School in St. Petersburg, Florida before joining the Bulldogs. He played in 11 games as a true freshman, starting once as a second tight end. Wynn began his sophomore year at the left guard spot, starting eight games there before moving over one spot to his left for the remaining five games. The transfer of Tyler Catalina from Western Carolina to Georgia forced Wynn to slide back to the left guard spot in 2016, where he started 12 times (missing one game due to injury).

Strengths:

  • Great technique
  • Fluid movement
  • Solid initial burst
  • Versatile, can play multiple positions
  • Body control and balance
  • Strong hands
  • Solid base
  • Runs feet through contact

Analysis: Isaiah Wynn moves with fluidity and ease with the desired knee bend scouts are looking for. He has a solid burst off the snap. Strong hands. If he gets his paws on a defender, he will not be breaking away from the block. Isaiah plays with disciplined hand usage keeping them inside opponent’s frame in both run and pass. Stays connected to his blocks and rarely falls off. Gets into blocks with tight footwork and runs feet through contact. Wants to finish blocks, won’t let up until after the whistle. Takes good angles up to linebacker as backside blocker and has technique and athleticism to reach and secure blocks others may struggle with. Offers tackle-level pass technique if bumped inside. Has body control and balance and feet to handle counter rush moves. Extremely aware against twists and quick to respond. What sets Wynn apart is his versatility. As mentioned above, Wynn has experience at every offensive line position. He may be viewed as a OG at the next level, but the security of having a guy that can play any of the five positions along the offensive front in a pinch is huge to a coaching staff and front office.

Weaknesses:

  • Lean for OG
  • Needs to prove he can withstand NFL power
  • Arm extension
  • Can begin to ‘chase’ defenders in pass protection

Analysis: At 6’2 300 pounds, some scouts would call Wynn ‘lean’ for the guard position, but he is built like an anchor so I don’t buy into that too much. He will need to show he can withstand NFL power, something he looked more than capable of during Senior Bowl week. Arm extension could be fine tuned with proper coaching–his initial punch doesn’t extend far. Wynn may lack necessary pop in his hips to displace 1-gappers who are clogging running lanes. Will lose patience and chase on occasion rather than standing his ground and making defenders come to him.

Size: 6’2 300lbs

Draft Rank: No.2 OL
