Offensive Guard | Indiana
6’4” | 305 lbs
Analysis by Nolan Fleming
Dan Feeney is a technician at the guard position. Not only does he have the most sound technique in this draft, he also possess elite physicality and athleticism. He has the ability to excel in any role a team may ask of him. When it comes to draft stock, Feeney should be considered a first round lock. There will teams lined up hoping to add him to their offensive lines.
As mentioned before, Feeney is incredibly sound with his technique. He is also one of the more consistent players in this entire draft, regardless of position. He has a powerful punch off the line, allowing him to disrupt defenders immediately, and he backs that up with quality footwork. He is master when he pulls as a lead blocker and regularly pancakes anyone who attempts to take him on. He does a great job of exploding through his hips, and rarely allows his weight to fall forward. In pass protection he is an anchor. He settles into his base nicely, and never stops churning his feet. He has excellent extension and controls the body of the defender.
Area’s of improvement
The only real weakness in Feeney’s game is occasional over aggressiveness. He can put himself in a bad position by focusing too much attention on trying to pancake defenders. Once he learns to control that aggressiveness and use it as a strength, he has the ability to become a pro bowl caliber player.
