Cons:

  • Struggles with speed

Overall

Rankin has the skill set to be a starting lineman at the pro level. He’s smart, versatile, and has some solid technique. He can be quick off the snap and really bully some defenders. However, he struggles with speed and effort seems to be a concern on some plays – for instance, he doesn’t always play to the whistle. If he can add some strength and power in the offseason he could be a 2nd or 3rd round pick in the draft.
