STRONG POINTS WEAKNESSES
Cameron Erving has great NFL size, and is strong aggressive blocker whom plays through the whistle on every play. He shows great ability to learn, having moved from defensive line to left tackle and became a starter at LT all in one year. He has also played emergency center on occasion, and has played fairly well there. Erving’s biggest weakness is his struggle against speed rushers coming off the edge, he can be beat. His footwork while good, could be cleaned up and more consistent.
SUMMARY
Erving is a strong aggressive blocker who has changed positions when needed and played well. He has great size and physicality. He has played very well against top competition shutting out Vic Beasley completely. Can struggle occasionally with speed rushers. I think Erving could be a 2nd or 3rd round pick, depending on his combine numbers.
