The good: Seifert has a big angular frame and a huge wingspan. He also has the footwork necessary to man the outside at the NFL level. Seifert is a battler who gets the most out of his ability. He possesses the smarts, toughness and size to emerge as a surprise in the NFL. He has developed into a good pass protector by relying on sound positioning and technique to gain a fast advantage over an opponent. He has adequate balance and body control. Seifert moves laterally well with good quickness initially off the snap.
The bad: He is a finesse blocker with a narrow build and average athletic ability, movement skills and functional strength. Seifert lacks the athleticism necessary to play left tackle or the power needed to play right tackle, so he may have to move to guard. He needs to become more aggressive and gain more strength to succeed in the NFL.
Outlook: Seifert is a legitimate sleeper with definite upside potential in the right setting, but he needs to improve in several areas to win a roster spot. He’s a possible late-round pick or a good free-agent prospect.
