|National Football League Draft Profile - Mike Tepper |
|High School||Pacifica (Cypress, California)|
|First-Team All-Pac 10 as a senior...Suffered multiple injuries when he was hit by a car in 2005, and missed the entire 2008 season with a pectoral injury, so the fact that Tepper returned to excel in 2009 speaks to his determination and toughness...Doesn't explode out of his stance when the ball is snapped, but moves his feet well when blocking on both run and pass downs...Needs to learn to use his hands better, especially in the run game...A sub par athlete who doesn't run well and makes no impact as a downfield blocker...A bit stiff...May be best suited to play guard, as he will struggle to contain superior NFL edge rushers.|
