Levy Adcock NFL Draft Profile

Levy Adcock NFL Draft Profile

Levy Adcock, Senior, Offensive Tackle, Oklahoma State



Levy Adcock’s journey to the NFL Draft has been an unlikely one. He started out his collegiate career playing at the junior college level. After redshirting in 2007, he ended up starting at guard for NEO A&M Junior College. He did play some tackle at the junior college level, but was mostly a guard. Thus, when he landed at Oklahoma State in 2009, it was a little odd that he would end up playing at tackle.

Prior to seeing much playing time at all for the Cowboys, Adcock spent the 2009 campaign mostly on special teams. It was not until 2010 that Adcock worked his way into a starting role at right tackle. And few predicted that he would have such a solid season despite his limited experience at the tackle position. In a Big 12 Conference that has some pretty good offensive lineman, Adcock earned All-Big 12 First-Team accolades by the league’s coaches.


Final Projection:

Adcock emerged as a physical tackle and a key clog in Oklahoma State’s efficient and effective offensive line. The Cowboys allowed less than a sack per game in 2010 and had a 1,500 yard rusher in Kendall Hunter. The surprising play of the 6-6, 320 pound Adcock contributed a big role in that success. Adcock’s success at the next level may come down to what position he can play. He is not a left tackle, but he could be a right tackle or a guard in the NFL. That versatility is a good thing, but he will need to add more quickness before he can play at tackle.

1/5/12 Update:

Adcock garnered a lot of national accolades for anchoring the underappreciated Oklahoma State offensive line. He still has the same issues he did before the season began and that will likely keep him down in the second or third round, but if he can improve his quickness between now and April, Adcock has room to move up the draft boards.
