11/13/12 - 11/12/12 NFL DRAFT SCOUT RISER: OT JOHN WETZEL, BOSTON COLLEGE...Like ACC-rival Maryland, itís been a tough season for Boston College, who might finish 2012 with double-digit losses (currently 2-8 with two games left). But the Eagles have a few bright spots on the roster, including senior right tackle John Wetzel. After spending his first few seasons as a little-used reserve, he started all 12 games at left tackle last season before moving to the right side this past spring. Listed at 6-7 and 308 pounds, Wetzel has the frame and length to engulf blockers and, despite heavy feet, he uses his wide base and wingspan to cover a lot of ground. He does a nice job driving defenders off the line of scrimmage and can redirect players in the run game. Wetzel can be caught lunging and overextending at times, but he does a nice job keeping rushers from his body and outside the pocket. He lacks the coordination and footwork to consistently hold up in space, but scouts are encouraged by his natural tools. So while he wonít be an early round pick, some in the NFL are beginning to believe he has starting right tackle potential at the next level. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
