Summer Scouting Notes: OT Tyler Beach, Wisconsin
Decent first step going downhill. Doesn’t have the speed to be an effective puller. Moves well laterally… Concerned with Beach’s upper body strength. Got man-handled at times and pushed up around from angles up top… Not particularly a power blocker… Anchors well shows good bend. Strong punch in… Placement is a little bit raw as a run blocker. Struggles to get his hands on defenders… Shows an excellent punch in pass protection. The outside arm looks a little bit weak, uses the punch to make up for it. Lacks a lot of technique. I think the lack of experience is a key factor here… Strong punch with his outside arm helps lock defenders in place. Shows good, healthy lean as a pass protector… Pushes forward well, needs to be a little bit more refined in his technique… Generally gets his assignment done. Not the most reliable run blocker. I find it odd that he’s on the right side… Wisconsin runs a pro-style power run offense, so transitioning won’t be much of an issue with Beach… Very smart. Moves well into his assignments and understands them well… Missed Wisconsin’s first game due to Covid. Looks like it affected him a good bit, lost some weight, and looked a little slim through 2020.
