Scouting Report on Leon Orr

On the Hoof: Very wide shoulders, but a tad soft in the midsection. Orr has extremely athletic legs for a big man and has a build similar to former Florida Gator Gerard Warren coming out of high school.
Needs Improvement: Has never played the position he is projected to play at the next level. Is he tough enough to play inside and take the physical pounding that defensive tackles receive every play? He will need to learn to play with his hand on the ground and work on pad level at the point of attack.
Most Impressive: Could be considered the biggest and best jumbo athlete in the country. He is very light on his feet and runs like a tight end. He also has soft hands.
Conclusion: Has the superior size and strength to make an impact as a freshman but will have to play a position he has had very little practice at. Depending on what the depth chart looks like when he arrives on campus, he may get a look as a huge pulling guard. He has all the tools are there for a tremendous college career and beyond.
