Michael Deiter, OT
Standing at 6-5, 309-pounds, this nimble-footed offensive tackle had a fantastic career at Wisconsin. According to Pro Football Focus, he had an 82.9 2018 rating. In the four years he started he allowed just 8.0 sacks and only 1.0 in 2018, per PFF.
Deiter’s best feature is his versatility. He has the ability to play every position on the line due to those nimble feet that should help him should pose well as a rotator on the line.
But Deiter also has sneaky good strength and will drive opposing rushers to the ground in the run game. When he gets to the second level of attack he does an exceptional job of opening gaps for huge plays down the field.
His biggest knock is his length. With 33-1/8-inch arms, his length will most likely prevent him from becoming a starting tackle in the NFL on day one. However, he could become a great interior lineman with his anchoring ability and quick feet.
He will be an excellent pickup for the Cardinals given his versatility and chameleon-like ability play anywhere. His first strike ability and quick, nimble feet make up for his lack of length. He should be drafted in the first three rounds.
