DEEP FRIED DRAFT

WORST INGREDIENTS


I am going, to be honest; there isn’t a whole lot about his game that I don’t like. I would have liked to see him pass block more. However, he wasn’t asked to pass block for many balls thrown downfield. He does have a tendency to get himself overextended on his reach blocks, but if anything that is just nitpicking.

MEAL QUALITY


Nico Siragusa was the main cog on an offensive line that dominated opponents in the run game. This is a run game that also produced FBS career rushing leader Donnel Pumphrey. He put together a dominant performance in the Las Vegas Bowl against Houston and their future top ten pick DT Ed Oliver. Siragusa is a humble individual and a very intelligent player. He was one of my favorite interviews from the Senior Bowl (Listen below). His injury from the Senior Bowl will not prevent him from doing a full workout at the combine. I expect that he will put himself near the top of the workouts and cement himself as a second round pick.


BEST INGREDIENTS

Siragusa plays with a nasty demeanor. He finishes blocks. It doesn’t matter if he is at the line of scrimmage or if he is 15-20 yards downfield. Siragusa is quick to the second level. He plays with power, explodes out of his stance, and demonstrates great hand usage. Siragusa is a tough player. He blocked in a pro-style offense his entire career. He injured his wrist during the first one-on-one rep at Senior Bowl practice and then went on to finish every other rep at a high level.

The offensive guard position isn’t the sexiest position you can draft. However, you can upgrade your team if you draft quality players like the one I am reviewing today. Nico Siragusa arrived at the Aztec program as a three-star recruit from Mater Dei HS (Chula Vista, CA). He had a long offer sheet including a couple from Power-5 schools before ultimately settling on the nearby Aztecs program. He redshirted his first year on campus and sparingly played as a redshirt freshman. Siragusa then went on to start 41 consecutive games at left guard.
