Robert Meyers


Recommended Posts

He has great size and looks nasty



2014: Second-team All-Ohio Valley Conference. Started all 12 games 11 at RG and 1 at RT. 2013: Second-team All-Ohio Valley Conference. Started all 14 games at RT. 2012: Played in 10 games with 8 starts. 2011: Played in 10 games with 1 start. 2010: Redshirted.

Vertical jump: 26 1/2 inches
Broad jump: 7 feet, 6 inches
STRENGTHS Has good thickness and strength through lower body. Flashes desired functional strength with ability to anchor against bull rushers. Footwork is a plus and stays balanced in pass protection. Sound technician and recognizes D-line games. Initial punch has some juice behind it. Good body control and knee bend. Gets movement at point of attack when asked to drive block. Well-timed climb to second level. Will look for work downfield and hustles to trail play. Tough player with above-average strength for his size and a frame to add more weight.
WEAKNESSES Average lateral athlete. Needs better understanding of angles and positioning as zone blocker. Not overly quick and tends to lose contact on outside runs. Loses strength when hands slide out too wide. Below average change of direction to strike moving targets on second level. Lacks muscle in his arms and has a soft midsection. Must prove he can handle faster, stronger competition.
DRAFT PROJECTION Priority free agent
BOTTOM LINE Myers is already above average from a technical standpoint and is a quick processor when the game speeds up. Myers is a guard prospect who can pull and play in a power scheme. He has the pass protection traits of an NFL starter. The ceiling is higher for Myers than many guard prospects in this draft, and with more coaching and work in the weight room, he should be an NFL starter

NFL Network slammed Meyers. Said his tape against FCS competition looks great, however he was completely overmatched from a strength perspective at the Senior Bowl. Sounds like a long-term project for us, which is good considering KO is likely to leave next season. Meyers needs time in the weight room, but football IQ and the frame sound like they are there.
