Christian Darrisaw

Height: 6’5″

Weight: 314 lbs

Strengths: Not only does Christian Darrisaw look the part of a great tackle, but he plays the same way. A bully on the field, Darrisaw plays incredibly violent and physical, especially in the running game. His anchor is a plus trait as he handles power rushers well with great leverage and hand placement. Darrisaw is also a really good athlete for his size. He can get out of his stance quickly to handle speed rushers and climbs to the second level well. Darrisaw keeps his head up consistently which allows his vision to thrive.

Weaknesses: One thing that kept jumping out to me on film is Darrisaw over committing to the defensive end’s outside shoulder, leaving him susceptible to a swim/spin move. He will need to get a little more patient when blocking in general, although most of those instances came in the running game.

Christian Darrisaw is a plug and play left tackle that is scheme versatile. He has the athleticism to thrive in a wide zone scheme but also the size and power to play in a man/gap/power scheme. If you need a tackle and are drafting in the top 15, this is a guy you want to target.
