Michael Toudouze   OT   TCU

 

Strengths

Michael has the size and athleticism to be a LT at the next level.  He shows good mental strength and is a smart kid.  He improved his play in his first year of starting as a LT for his college team.  He has the ability to get bigger and, at this time, is just scratching the surface of his talent. 

 

Needs to Improve

Michael has a whole lot of improvement to make with his overall game, but I have no doubt that he will do this.  The next contract for Michael should be a big one. 

 

Talent Board Round   2

Mike is a left tackle just waiting to happen.  He looks like he can gain strength and bulk without any problems and as soon as he learns better techniques in both pass blocking and run blocking, he should be a hell of a player.  He reminds me a little of Robert Gallery when he came out.  He is not as far along as Robert was, but he has the same build, determination and mental strength that Robert has.  I donít know what round Mike will be taken in, but I do know that there are not that many pure LTís in this draft, so he might be taken earlier than he's rated.  Whatever the case, just be patient with him and he should be an excellent OT for the right or the left side.
