Comparison

Penei Sewell Detroit Lions

Special athlete that has the size and foot quickness to make a difference at football’s highest levels. Seems to always be in control of his body, which is impressive for someone that’s tipping the scales at just over 6-foot-5, 330 pounds. Still pretty green from a technical standpoint, but has made massive strides over the past two years and held his own in spotlight matchups against blue-chip pass rushers like Damon Wilson and Rueben Bain. One of the better down/move blockers we have seen in the class of 2023 as he fires out of his stance and drives would-be tacklers out of the way. Has limited issues getting to the second level and is very effective when asked to pull or get outside the hashes as he can open up big lanes for ball carries. Uses a wide base to find/establish leverage in pass protection, but must continue to improve that aspect of his game as he’s much better at moving forward than he is backwards at this stage in his development. Could also get a little more efficient/effective with his hand placement. Has a unique background having grown up in American Samoa before making his way to California as a teenager and then eventually to Florida. Started at right tackle as a junior at the NFL factory that is IMG Academy before flipping over to left tackle as a senior. Doesn’t exactly look like a franchise corner protector at first glance, but measurements (81-inch wingspan) and testing data (5.3 in the 40-yard dash and 4.5 in the short shuttle) paints a bit of a different picture. Is only going to get better with more seasoning and should be viewed as a multi-year starter for a Power Five program like his brother, who started over 30 games at center for Washington State and was named to the Rimington Award watch list. Rare explosive movement patterns and smash-mouth tendencies should draw plenty of looks from pro scouts.
