Helped Stanford rush for school-record 2,904 yards. 2012: Second-team All-American selection after starting all 14 games at left tackle. Played four of five offensive line positions, as well as tight end and wing. Allowed just one sack. " http://www.nfl.com/draft/2014/profil...key?id=2543657

As a blocker, Yankey is a very well-rounded prospect who is prepared for the NFL. He is a technician who is a balanced run- and pass-blocker. Yankey does well opening holes in the ground game and could execute as a man or zone blocker. His pulling is his best asset. Yankey is quick to get around the left side, and when he's on the move, he can blast open some holes. Yankey could stand to improve his power for short-yardage situations to get more of a push.

Yankey is a reliable pass-protector who has the quickness and athleticism to negate speed rushers. He also has enough strength and weight in his lower body to anchor against bull rushers. With some NFL coaching, Yankey should end up being a good pass-protector as a pro.

Yankey is a favorite to be the first guard selected in the 2014 NFL Draft. He could go late in the first round and shouldn't fall out of Round 2. For the NFL, Yankey looks like he can play quickly and will be a long-term starter. "

I've got Su'a-Filo ranked much higher than Yankey

Had Thomas ranked much higher too, both have much better feet.

Folks, can we please not turn every thread into a draft discussion? We have the draft forum for that. Thanks.

Ive gotten to where I don't put a ton of stock into these scouting reports. So many of them seem to be written up by the same guy and so many of them turn out to be so wrong.

This one could be spot on, I have no clue. I will go look at some video of Yankey and see how that compares to this write up, though.

I had this guy in fantasy 1 year....& if i'm not mistaken this guy is a fumbling machine. Apart from the injuries, he couldn't get out of Coughlin's doghouse b/c of it.

Move your questions/thoughts to mock forum as requested and we can continue. Understand your point on scouting reports but all I listed were different guys. Just because people have same evaluations....
