Texas A&M’s Avery Gennesy is a solid offensive line prospect who could potentially carve out a long career in the NFL.
Avery Gennesy doesn’t jump off the screen as an elite player, but he’s someone who routinely gets the job done. This is exactly what most NFL coaches want and expect from their offensive lineman. Gennesy is unlikely to develop into an All-Pro, but has the skills to be a solid contributor.
This is a well-built offensive lineman who features a thick base and long arms. He uses his arm length to gain inside hands and keep the defender off his frame. Gennesy has the raw strength to Velcro to the defender and remain engaged.
He features a quick first step which helps him gain initial contact, cross the face of the defender and quickly get into this stance. Gennesy does a great job using angles which allows him to get into proper position.
As a run blocker, he flashes the ability to generate a small push but Texas A&M’s offense mainly asks him to seal.
Gennesy is an average athlete who shows the ability to protect the edge. However, he may have trouble consistently dealing with the elite edge rushers he’ll face in the NFL. The success he does have is thanks to his arm length and sound technique.
His thick base and wide stance allow him to absorb contact. Gennesy does a great job anchoring after contact and holding his ground. He’s someone who will be best suited to play right tackle or even bump inside to guard. Gennesy has the build, strength and toughness to be an effective interior player.
The concern is that he’s just an average athlete and will get exposed in the long term playing tackle.
