Scouting Report

Overview

Radunz built up quite the resume before the 2020 season, with 31 starts at left tackle and plenty of accolades to go along with his durability. Scouts were excited for the opportunity to watch him in 2020 but only got to see him in one game as the FCS postponed their season due to COVID-19 precautions.

Analysis

Radunz became a star tackle for the Bison with his great foot speed and excellent short-area quickness. In a series against Central Arkansas, he was rotated to right tackle just to be the lead blocker on a huge run, a common trend when Radunz is running ahead of the play downfield. There is star potential and length with Radunz, as he definitely shows great traits to be a long-time dependable starter in the league.

While he has great height, coaches likely will want Radunz to put on weight to help develop his overall strength and anchor. He must be able to do that while maintaining his athleticism. The season off from competition, combined with a steep jump from the FCS to NFL, could hurt his stock as scouts might have a harder time getting a firm evaluation on him.

Pro comparison: Brian O'Neill, Vikings -- Radunz will have his work cut out for him, but his consistently dominant play is a reason to believe he will make it work. The frame is there for Radunz to add good weight. The team that drafts him will need to help him develop, but if done correctly Radunz has the ceiling to be as good as any tackle from this class.
