A frustrating talent out of Ole Miss, Greg Little has all the physical traits and mobility needed to be a pro-level offensive lineman. Although he allowed just 6.0 sacks, 32 hurries, and eight quarterback hits over three seasons of play, per Pro Football Focus, don’t expect a once thought of first-rounder to be selected with the top 32. Here is what my colleague Avery Duncan had to say about the tackle;
"Standing at 6-5, 310-pounds, and with 35-1/4-inch arms, Little should be able to slide in seemingly at left tackle, someday. As his game currently stands, there is an obvious lack of power off of the point of attack. Combine that with average balance, explosiveness, and agility and Little projects to struggle in an angle blocking scheme."
The problems that Little has shown is his technique and lack of physical use, particularly with his hands. While he has demonstrated perfect mirror work in pass sets along with set point work, it’s too inconsistent. We all know he is there; he just needs to show more consistency in his game.
In the run game, he is more of a “get in the way” blocker than one power in the department. He shows flashes of dominance with surreal flexibility, size, and understanding of leverage points, but again, you don’t see it consistently. Although he needs to get better as a mauler, he has shown the capacity to work in the screen game.
Despite all of his flaws, Little has the potential to become an everyday tackle by even year-two. If Sean Kugler could work on his technique the Cardinals could have a franchise tackle. Currently, he has a day-two grade but his project status may mean he falls to Steve Keim’s lap at No. 65 overall.
