Draft Rewind 2011 – Anthony Castonzo – Indianapolis Colts

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about ANTHONY CASTONZO: Boston College, 6071 305 5.23. Four-year starter. Team captain. Has started 54 straight games. First true freshman to start for Boston College in 10 years. Long arms and big hands. Typical BC offensive tackle – tall, tough, and physical in his play. A mauler who is always looking to hit somebody. Plays left tackle, but is more of a right tackle type. Rangy but not smooth. Physically and mentally tough. A quick learner which is a definite requirement to start early in his NFL career. Has the ability to quick set and redirect with natural body control in his pass pro. Grabs the defender’s breast plate and steers him with his strong hands. He has the agility and balance to block good defensive ends. He wore out #94 Armond Armstead (USC’s end) in the Emerald Bowl in 2009. Has the ability to mirror, wall off, change direction, and recover. Does a good job downfield to keep his feet and stay up on his block. Good second level effort to adjust and sustain in space. Demonstrates the quickness to get position in the run game and keep it. Sticks to his block. Needs to work on his lower body power and strength to dominate as a run blocker. Castonzo will need to work at right tackle before he is thrown in at left. He struggled in 2009 against Robert Quinn. OSR:5/49. First round. (A-35 1/4, H-10 3/4, BP-28, 10-1.82).
