Dalton Risner Scouting Report

STRENGTHS: If you’re looking for a solid, can’t miss prospect, Dalton Risner is your man…plays with great technique…Risner is super nasty and plays with an edge…another prospect that if he gets his hands on you, it’s basically over…loose hips…very mobile…very versatile…projects to be able to play multiple positions across the offensive line—center, guard, and tackle…the way he handled himself at the Scouting Combine–if you weren’t a fan before, you were afterwards…Dalton Risner means business…

WEAKNESSES: Dalton Risner isn’t the upper echelon athlete…you wonder if bigger, stronger athletes at the NFL level will cause problems for Risney…throughout his college career, the longer athletes were the ones who would pose a problem…some question whether he has the ability to succeed at the tackle position…

COMP: Brandon Scherff

OVERALL: Dalton Risner is one of the prospects that you can draft and sleep well…I don’t see him projecting as a Left Tackle in the NFL—but any other position would make sense. Incredibly versatile and nasty—he’s an offensive line coach’s dream. I wouldn’t be surprised to see him slip into the 1st round,  but ultimately I’m going to project him as an early 2nd round pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.
