Ty’kieast Crawford is an intriguing prospect with excellent height and length for the tackle position at this stage. He possesses very good bulk and demonstrates well above average playing strength. Few players improved as much as Crawford from his sophomore to junior season.
In pass protection, he flashes a good punch and is active with his hands displaying the ability to gain placement. He needs to watch pad level, but can maintain a good base and mirror once locked on, but could struggle to counter quick moves if he doesn’t win with hands.
Against the run, Does a good job of getting hand placement and can be tough to shake once locked on. He is best in the second level where he can use good angles and get a hat on targets at times with devastating resulting.
I love this young prospect not just because he is capable of dominating opponents at his current level but because he is a hard worker that improves every game. He displays a physical demeanor and some edge to his play and gives the effort to work downfield and will look for someone to hit.
Despite offers from programs like Alabama, he has flown a little under the radar. He has the size and ability to contribute as a guard his freshman season but should develop to a cornerstone left tackle and an early round draft pick.
