Joseph Barksdale

School: LSU
Position: T
Bio: Three-year starter who began his career at right tackle before moving to the left side as a senior and winning all-Conference honors.
Positive: Big offensive lineman who's coming off a terrific senior season and has significantly improved his draft grade. Works to bend his knees, gets his hands into defenders, and stays square. Adjusts to oncoming rushers, keeps his feet moving, and seals opponents from the action with good body positioning. Anchors in pass protection, correctly places his hands into opponents, and effectively uses them to knock defenders from their angle of attack. Adequate strength at the point and displays the ability to turn defenders off the line run blocking.
Negative: Not light on his feet or effective in motion. Does a bit of bending at the waist. Average footwork at left tackle.
Analysis: Barksdale was a consistent player for LSU who made a successful transition to blind side tackle last year, improving on a weekly basis. He offers good size, growth potential, and upside for the next level. His play at left tackle last year moved him from the late rounds into a middle-round prospect.
