O’Cyrus Torrence: NFL Draft Scouting Report

O’Cyrus Torrence: NFL Draft Scouting Report
Reading Time: 2 minutes.


  • Height: 6′ 5″
  • Weight: 335 lbs
  • College: Florida
  • Year: Senior
  • Position: Offensive Guard


  • Size – Torrence has elite measurables for a guard – with length and a physically imposing frame
  • Power – using his size and length, Torrence is able to physically dominate opposing interior defenders
  • Strength – Core -he can absorb hits well and control defensive linemen. Grip – latches well onto opponents and stymies any bull-rushes
  • Mauler – plays through the whistle and finishes plays
  • Explosiveness off the snap – Torrence is quick out of his stance and get up field
  • Run blocking – good lateral movement to open lands
  • Close quarters combat – excels when ‘operating in a phone booth’


  • Feet – plants feet regularly and tries to outmuscle defenders too often. High risk of holding penalties
  • Handwork – unrefined, again relies on strength rather than technique to bully defenders
  • Reactions – often gets caught out by blitzers
  • Over-aggressiveness – can be too amped up at times and lose consistency with blocks


O’Cyrus Torrence has seen a meteoric rise since his transfer to Florida from the Louisiana- Lafayette for the 2022 season. He has significant physical upside, particularly in the running game where his exceptional power can be well utilised. His work in close quarters at the line of scrimmage is top drawer. However, his movement skills – both laterally and climbing to the next level – are not quite there yet. Working on the technical aspects of the game, rather than simply relying on power, will serve him well moving forward. Teams are going to love his attitude and strength, however, and I can see him sneaking into the lower half of round 1 if a team likes his attributes.
