Warren Ericson
Georgia Bulldogs


One-Liner:

A broad interior lineman who thrives in space, Ericson drives defenders off the ball with intent.

Evaluation:

Thick Trunk and posterior chain. Lower body is fluid with good quickness off the ball and nimble feet. Aims to gain and maintain leverage every snap, firing off and rolling his hips into linemen. Ideal body positioning that displaces linemen and creates easy run lanes. Terrific on gap or power plays. Freight train in the open field that gets on top of linebackers in a hurry. Shows an ability to anchor the bull rush, digging his cleats into the ground and playing through his elbows. Main issue is hand timing-initial punch. When engaged, the rep is over. Too often, though, he misses leading to his head going over his toes and his body on the ground. Would like to see faster blitz recognition. Ericson has the physical traits needed to perform as an interior lineman. His ability to displace defenders both on the line of scrimmage and at the second level is promising when paired with his pass protection. Cleaning up his technique in terms of hand placement and timing will round out his skillset and be advantageous to his draft positioning.

Grade:

3rd Round
