According to NFL.com’s scouting report, Manhart could be a good interior lineman for the Raiders. We had Manhart as an undrafted free agent as well.
Very fluid athlete with good feet. Was effective when asked to pull from tackle position. Can climb to second level and get blocks sealed. Used as tight end in short-yardage spot and was motioned around to set up attack points. Good processor. Was able to make in-game position switch effectively. Shows good pad level and hand placement in pass protection. Competes hard through the play and to the whistle.
