Jack is the type of offensive lineman that would block his mother from sacking
his quarterback. He would feel bad the whole time doing it, but he would do it.
He has good size and excellent strength and the mental stamina and quickness to
play more than one position on the offensive line. He has decent lateral agility
and very good quickness out of his stance. Jack has strong hands that allow him
to lock on his opponent without getting called for many holding penalties. He is
very team oriented and does not like to make mistakes that will reflect on his
teammates. Jack is a powerful run blocker and a technically sound pass blocker.
He shows excellent leadership skills through his play on the field and has the
respect of his teammates because of his effort on every play. There is no
position that Jack will not play on a football team and give his full effort on
every play. He shows surprising athletic talent when challenged and is very
coachable. Jack is the type of offensive lineman that coaches love, teammates
want to work with him and fans will value him as a big part of their teamís
success. Jack Mewhort is a winner and although he does not play the center
position, he reminds me a lot of Buffalo Bills center Eric Woods because of his
mental strength, football intelligence, leadership skills and his ability to
step up when challenged.
Jack has some off field issues that will need to be investigated and addressed.
Itís the only thing that keeps me from giving him a first round grade right now.
Some teams might downgrade Jack because his athletic talents and workout numbers
might not be up to the standards of a left tackle (the position he played in
college) but his workouts will show that he has the athletic talent to play
right tackle, left guard and in a pinch could play left tackle for the team that
Jackís intangibles will make him an excellent NFL offensive lineman and the type
of player every team needs to be a playoff team. When he struggles blocking, he
finds away to overcome and is not too proud to ask for help. When his teammates
struggle blocking players, he finds a way to help them out too. He is a leader
and what you see now is what you get when you select him in the draft. I believe
that Jack will be an excellent Right Tackle with the ability to be an excellent
left guard and the possibility of being an excellent center if he can make all
the snaps. Thatís a player with value and I can see a playoff team in the latter
part of the first round being very interested in drafting Jack. His off field
issues and suspensions will have to be evaluated, but Iím sure as long as they
are not drug related that most teams will be satisfied and not consider them to
be much of an issue. Jack has the mentality I like to see in my offensive
linemen. He has good athletic talent, football intelligence and the ability to
play in multiple offensive blocking schemes. He has the mental stamina and
leadership skills that allow him to play above his athletic talent also. Jack is
a football player. Thatís all he wants to be right now and thatís just fine with
