Let me just start off by saying Netane Muti is an absolute monster and can play from day one if he can just stay healthy Muti benched pressed 225 lbs 44 reps at the NFL scouting combine and showed scouts how strong he was off the field.
His strength off the field is the exact same on the field when asked to run block. Muti isn’t trying to simply get in someones way, he is trying to run them over. Muti sometimes wants to hit defenders so badly he puts his head down in attempts to use all his strength and the result is he misses the block. Another issue in the run game is that when he’s asked to pull block he has issues making good contact on his assignment. That can be cleaned up on the pro level by good coaching. Muti’s skill set is best used in a zone blocking scheme.
His pass protection is pretty good, he has a great anchor and you will hardly see him give ground on defenders. Muti played excellent against former Buffalo Bills 1st round pick in Ed Oliver when Fresno State played against Houston in 2018. On 600 passing attempts, Muti only gave up 14 pressures and most of those came when he was asked to play offensive tackle.
Muti is a flexibility on the offensive line will pay off for a NFL franchise that decides his past injuries. Muti is best at offensive guard but will play tackle if called upon.
