Draft Profile: Luke Haggard, T, Louisville


The 2023 NFL offseason is 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.

Luke Haggard, T, Louisville

HT: 6’7
WT: 297 lbs


– Earned the team’s Chris Dal Sasso Award (Outstanding Lineman)



– He’s a coordinated athlete who can win at the point of attack in the run game, and Haggard can also move to consistently land blocks at the second level.
– Carries his weight naturally, wide-framed with low body fat, along with long arms and large, powerful hands. Haggard moves naturally, with agile feet and the natural balance to mirror in pass protection.
– Consistently lands blocks at the second level, and he finishes strong. As a pass protector, he has violent, heavy hands. Along with a strong initial punch, he has the hand strength to grip and redirect pass rushers.
– In the run game, he explodes off the line of scrimmage and consistently gets out to the second level to do damage.
– Is effective when asked to pull, showing the agility, speed, and overall range to get out as a lead blocker, where he locates defenders and shows the ability to adjust and land blocks against linebackers.
– He’s especially light on his feet considering his size, a fluid mover who has natural balance as he kick-slides and sets. Haggard has the long arms to ward off pass rushers and send them flying past the pocket.


– Needs to work on his technique in pass protection, using more consistent leverage and continuing to move his feet.
– While Haggard displays a decent amount of strength at the point of attack, he lacks the raw power to re-establish the line of scrimmage in short-yardage situations.
– Is a bit underpowered, often coming off the line of scrimmage too high and struggling to generate movement. Haggard might be no more than a wall-off, angle blocker.


In 2020 as a freshman Haggard saw action in 7 games and played a total of 331 snaps for the Hoosiers. He allowed a disappointing 15 QB hurries, 3 QB hits, and one sack while playing at left tackle.

As a sophomore in 2021 he played in 11 games and a total of 707 snaps. He conceded a disappointing 23 QB hurries, 2 QB hits, and 2 sacks while playing at left tackle.
