J.C. Tretter | Tackle | Colorado | 6'4" - 300 lbs.


ANALYSIS

STRENGTHS Athletic build. Possess light feet, and has the athletic ability to mirror pass rushers. Flexible, shows the ability to bend. Moves well laterally. Plays with good balance. Quick off the ball. Recognizes stunts and blitzes well, and has the coordination to execute multiple blocks in these situations.

WEAKNESSES Limited experience and played against weak competition. Will likely have to move to guard, due to a lack of length. Lacks core strength. While he's light on his feet, his foot quickness needs to improve.

NFL COMPARISON Keith Boothe

BOTTOM LINE Tretter is an athletic offensive lineman, who will likely have to move to the inside at the next level. He plays the game with good balance and coordination. However there will be questions about his length, strength, and the competition he played. Tretter looks to be a nice long-term upside type.

Fucking A.

Alright. I give up. I'm pissed. After beating the drum for the man...

He's another LT for Cornell... that Ivy League powerhouse.

He's versatile, a great athlete and a great scheme fit. I like that he has a bit of nasty to him. Obviously, the worry is will all that transfer from the Ivy League to the NFL.

Overview

A high school quarterback and basketball star who signed with Cornell to play tight end, Tretter has maintained his athleticism while adding mass, emerging as one of this year's more intriguing developmental offensive linemen.

Tretter spent his first two seasons with the Big Red as a backup tight end, catching five passes for 80 yards and a touchdown. He made the move to left tackle as a junior, earning Second Team All-Ivy League honors in his first season at the position and ascending to First Team accolades as a senior.


Tretter's rapid development caught the attention of former Cleveland Browns general manager Phil Savage, now the director of the Senior Bowl, who invited the Cornell blocker to the prestigious all-star game. Unfortunately for Tretter, a broken nose suffered while training before the game kept him sidelined, robbing scouts of the opportunity to see him against top competition.


Virtually untested and likely to be switching positions, Tretter is almost surely a year (or more) from significantly contributing, but a team could see his athleticism and surprising technique as reason enough to invest a Day Three selection.


Analysis

STRENGTHS: Possesses an athletic frame with room for additional muscle mass. Quick off the snap, demonstrating light feet with lateral agility and balance. Shoots his hands into the chest of his opponent and flashes some nastiness to knock defenders to the ground when he senses them off-balance. Shows surprising football intelligence considering his lack of experience. Recognizes blitzes and adjusts to stunts well, showing the ability to slide off of double-teams and take on the defender looping around. Takes the game seriously, showing the attention to detail to improve. An ascending talent who is just scratching the surface of his potential.


WEAKNESSES: Obvious level of competition questions. Likely will be asked to make the transition inside, as he possesses shorter than ideal arms (32.25 inches) and, while quick against Ivy League defenders, does not possess the foot speed to handle NFL edge rushers. Lacks the strength and use of leverage to anchor against NFL defensive tackles. Possesses clear upside but may be strictly a developmental squad candidate as a rookie.


Compares To: Herb Taylor, OG, Jacksonville Jaguars -- Taylor was originally drafted out of TCU as an offensive tackle by Kansas City, but his smallish frame has pushed him inside during stops in Denver, Green Bay and, most recently, earning his second career start in Jacksonville. Tretter, like Taylor, has the upside to find a niche as his frame fills out.

Looks like a typical mid round Oline pick from Ted. Tackles on college that will be looked at G,and in emergency has experience to move out to tackle. That give us the ability to carry less lineman.

Will see how he does on the practice squad.

NFL.com had some players ranked higher. Ted should stop using his board and use the official NFL.com prospect rankings. What an egomaniac.

Green Bay - With the second of their two fourth-round selections, the Packers took Cornell OL J.C. Tretter, a college left tackle who projects to guard or center in the NFL.

Yeah, I think they're looking at him as a C. That lisfranc must be really scaring them away from Barrett Jones.

Anybody see video on this kid from the combine? Dude has the look of a complete Center. I mean, that super squat wide body build, and he's 6'-4"! This is one BIG dude!!!

Amazing. JC could prove to be a really special pick.

I hope they don't need to put him at T. It would be great if he is the new C they need. Or at least EDS backup.
