Comparison

D.J. Humphries Arizona Cardinals

Looks the part with his tall frame and long arms. Large hands. Body matured while lifting in a college-style strength program over the past two and a half years. Room, however, to keep adding muscle. A defensive end with a basketball background that made the transition to offense and became a two-year starter at left tackle for IMG Academy. Exceptional space athlete. Uses length and wide lateral strides to protect the corner. Mirrors and rolls with his hips. Unloads on down blocks. Latches on and generates movement to open up holes. Comfortable climbing and engaging defenders at the second level. Packs a sturdy punch. Understands the importance of finding proper depth with his kick step. Posted impressive testing numbers spring before junior season with a short shuttle time that some skill players would find acceptable. Will tap into a mean streak and play through the whistle. Improved as a run blocker his senior season, but a little more advanced at his stage in his development as a pass blocker. Still refining technique, but has one of the highest ceiling’s out of any prospect in the class of 2021 given build, big-man twitch and balance. Has the natural tools and athleticism to be a multi-year starter for a top 25 program and eventually a first-round NFL Draft pick.
