Joseph Noteboom Draft Profile

Joseph Noteboom draft profile

Strengths:

  • Good athlete in space
  • Hand strength is solid
  • Has adequate dip and scoop hip flexion to create leverage as a drive blocker
  • Solid frame
  • Runs feet under initial contact for improved sustain as run blocker
  • Can pass set with good posture when he wants to
  • Solid pulling lineman
  • Does a good job of working hip-to-hip on double-team blocks

Analysis: Joseph Noteboom is a solid athlete for his size and the three-time All-Academic Big 12 pick has not missed a game since redshirting the 2013 season. He played as a reserve in 2014, then took over the right tackle spot for all 13 games as a sophomore. Noteboom moved to the blind side for 2016, starting every game and showing agility in pass protection that NFL scouts admire at the position despite growing into his frame. Big 12 coaches voted him honorable mention all-conference as a senior, as he started all 14 games at the left tackle spot. His game tape leaves a lot to be desired, but he has flashed potential this offseason, specifically Senior Bowl week where he looked dominant at times in one-on-one drills. He is technique driven, but battle with consistency too much. The best part of his game is his ability to combo block with another lineman–he works hip-to-hip and can get to the second level off the block. Joseph Noteboom possesses the posture you look for when setting up in pass protection.

Weaknesses:

  • Inconsistent
  • Technique slips when matched against power
  • Rushers who ramp up speed-to-power are a problem for him
  • Needs to play with faster hands and a more efficient punch
  • Inconsistent getting to his lateral blocks
  • Inefficient paths to block

Analysis: Joseph Noteboom flashes the technique, hand usage, and athleticism you want out of the position but he doesn’t do those things with enough consistency. His inability to gain and secure positioning as a move blocker is a concern as is his consistency as a finisher in running game. His technique goes blank when he is tasked with powerful pass rushers. His hand usage is slow to engage, allowing defenders to get into his space with little to stop him. His angles and paths to defenders are not consistent and he struggles to get his pad level square to defenders on the second level. More powerful punch is needed in pass protection.

What the scouts say: “I was disappointed when I finally sat down and studied him. I couldn’t find that one thing that I really loved about him and he looked a lot smaller than his listed weight when I watched the tape. I think he has a lot of work to do.” – NFL offensive line consultant
