Niang is a run-blocking, right-tackle for TCU. Looking for depth in the last few rounds, Niang could come in and provide depth to an offensive line that’s one of the best in the NFL right now. In 2018 he played 885 snaps and all of them were at right tackle.
With 417 pass snaps and 468 run snaps, he only allowed 3 hits and 7 hurries. He can lock down the right side on pass-blocking and can move defenders out of the gaps in the running game.
His run blocking grade is a 75 with his pass blocking at 86 with nearly 300 snaps coming on zone blocking rather than man blocking. At 6’7″, 328 pounds, he can get out of his stance much faster than most tackles, even some at his size.
However, his weakness is his stance and footwork. He can tend to stay on his heels and get pushed around a little by defensive ends who use the bull rush. His height is a weakness and an advantage for him.
Rico Bussey is a receiver with a lot of potentials. He’s got size at 6’2″ and a speedy frame at 192 pounds. The North Texas receiver caught 12 touchdowns last year on 68 receptions with over 1,000 yards receiving with a 15 yards per catch average. With 11 catches of 20 or more yards, 371 of his yards came on said plays. He also had 5.8 yards after catch average with 11 broken tackles.
However, his weakness is his dropping percentage at nearly 13% over the course of his career at North Texas with consistent body catching rather than using his hands and he requires a little bit of time to set up routes. Late round draft picks are always a work in progress and Bussey is no exception to this.
