2011 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Derek Sherrod

Derek Sherrod, OL, Mississippi State (6'5" 315 lbs.)

Positives: He has very good footwork and a strong base. Uses his hands well and has good arm extension. Has the ability to control defenders once he locks on. He's a solid pass blocker and very good run block. Has a good football IQ and could be a starting left tackle for many years.

Negatives: Needs to do a better job of staying in front of quick defenders. He has a tendancy to lunge and miss blocks at time. He needs to get stronger and play with more aggression.
