Pros: Good height with thick and strong upper and lower bodies. Absolute mauler who works hard on - and through - every play.
Cons: Must learn to play inside in the NFL because he lacks the athleticism, arm length and hand size to be more than a short-term solution outside.
Styg's Broncos Fit: A work in progress, Lang is a tough-minded, physical player who never lets up and who shows flashes of the kind of awareness you like to see in C depth. He is athletic enough to pull and trap effectively, has good balance and is smart enough to learn the line calls. A self-starter who responds well to coaching and could play a relief role at any spot on the line, he could be a good value for Denver in their search for interior depth, but may not have the upside to project to a long-term answer at C.
Scouting Reports and Offsite Links:
- Left in charge was EMU’s only coach left from former coach Jeff Genyk’s staff, current offensive line coach and former tight ends coach Kurt Anderson. Anderson fielded questions from scouts about the players, especially Lang.
“He’s a natural leader,” Anderson said of Lang. “Football means the world to him. T.J. Lang would start at Michigan in a heartbeat.” [see more...]
