Anton Harrison: NFL Draft Scouting Report

Anton Harrison: NFL Draft Scouting Report
Reading Time: 2 minutes.


  • Height: 6′ 5″
  • Weight: 315lbs
  • College: Oklahoma
  • Year: Junior
  • Position: Offensive Tackle


  • Long and athletic build – does not carry excessive weight either in top or lower half, in fact, he has the frame to add weight if needed
  • Athleticism – is able to follow and mirror his opponent
  • Speed – can keep up with pass rushers around the outside, whilst able to get out quickly and with a decent range in the run game
  • Quick feet – able to deal with changing direction quickly, no tightness in hips allows bend and changing direction with ease
  • Control – Harrison is a well-balanced tackle, who is patient and rarely over-reaches or gets too aggressive in plays
  • Understanding of pass protection – understands how to take up angles and nullify rushing lanes
  • Hand placement – consistently finds his target and strength to back this up can stun opposing defenders


  • Inside – whilst excellent at protecting the outside, can often give up his inside shoulder and be beaten on the inside by more savvy defensive linemen
  • Pad level – would benefit from playing less upright
  • Lacks a mean streak – finishing in the run game would benefit from more physicality
  • Functional Strength – despite his dimensions, Harrison does not plow through opponents and shift them like one would expect, this can lead to him coming off blocks and ending up on the turf at times.


Oklahoma Sooners Offensive tackle Anton Harrison is quietly one of the better offensive tackles in the 2023 NFL draft. His skills and athleticism in pass protection will certainly be admired by any pass-heavy offence looking to protect their QB’s blind side. Whilst not as aggressive and strong as some in the run game, there is plenty of potential to develop once he enters the league. Whilst somewhere early on day 2 would be the sweet spot for Harrison, I would not be at all surprised to see him on the field early in his rookie year.
