ANALYSIS STRENGTHS Plays with extended, balanced kick-slide and can rush to meet speed rushers at the corner. Has good footwork and shows accuracy with hand placement usually landing where he is aiming. Uses long arms to his advantage. Can recover back inside to re-set hands when beaten to the punch and is able to extend his arms to run defenders around the arc or up the field. Has the ability to get to most lateral blocks and works hard to maintain his base and to stay square on stretch plays. Looks for work and plays with a competitive demeanor throughout the snap.
WEAKNESSES Could use more muscle and bulk. Not as authoritative or physical as he needs to be. Allows his hands to escape the framework of defender. Need to strike with punch rather than place it. Hands could use more strength to sustain his blocks. On combo blocks, will sit on first block too long before looking up linebacker. Has tendency to narrow base and get bucked off of block. Doesn’t possess lower body power to drive defender and pry open a lane. Anchor must be monitored on next level. Struggled three different times to redirect against inside moves by Clemson pass rushers.
NFL COMPARISON Tony Hills BOTTOM LINE
Hard-nosed, high effort tackle whose feet are always in motion and who has the footwork necessary to match up with speed rushers on the left side. Crisp has limited strength and may not be a fit for teams looking to run the ball with power, but his feet and length give him a shot to become an NFL starter at left tackle.
