The 2023 NFL offseason is nearly here and that means it’s time for mock drafts, draft profiles and everything that goes with them. So without further ado, here’s one of many Draft Profiles for the 2023 NFL draft.
Andrew Vorhees, G, USC
WT: 325 lbs
– Morris Trophy (2022)
– First-team All-American (2022)
– First-team All-Pac-12 (2022)
– Bursts off the line of scrimmage and has tremendous natural strength and power, able to dominate at the point of attack and wipe out defenders in the run game.
– Has a naturally wide base, thickly build, and good length. Long legs to cover a lot of ground with his initial kick slide. Has the quickness to set up quickly with enough lateral shuffle to mirror and mobility to get to the second level.
– Made Bruce Feldman’s Freak’s List – ranked #99. He wrote, “The Trojans’ best O-lineman is also their strongest player and their resident “Freak,” according to strength coach Bennie Wylie. Vorhees can bench-press 225 40 times.”
– Is effective when asked to pull, showing the agility, speed, and overall range to get out as a lead blocker, where Vorhees locates defenders and shows the ability to adjust and land blocks against linebackers.
– As a pass protector, he plays with good balance and holds up against the bull rush. Vorhees has strong hands and does a nice job gripping and latching on once he has his hands on the pass rusher.
– Has a powerful lower body and enough leg drive to knock defenders back at the point of attack. Vorhees flashes light feet as a pass protector, with the ability to mirror against quickness and the anchor strength to hold up against the bull rush.
– Needs to prove his worth in a straight-ahead running game.
– Can struggle to stay engaged, especially on the second level. His hand placement can be sloppy, costing him power.
– He’ll have some trouble with quickness as a pass protector; Vorhees needs to make better use of his hands, and he often stops his feet once he makes initial contact as a pass protector.
– Vorhees doesn’t have ideal coordination between his upper and lower body and is often overeager to land an initial punch and struggles agains
