Player Profile: Offensive Guard Adam Gettis

No offensive linemen lit up the combine quite like Iowa's Adam Gettis. The 6'2"1/2 293 pounder ran an unofficial 4.81 40, with an official time of 5.00. What's even more impressive was his 10 yard split of 1.65(best amongst all offensive linemen at the combine). He posted a 31.5 inch vertical, a 9.4 inch broad jump, a 4.65 short shuttle, and a 7.99 3-cone. Aside from stellar on-field drills, which showcased impressive change of direction, and explosion, Gettis was able to do work on the football field at Iowa, despite being overshadowed by teammates Riley Reiff and Markus Zusevics.

Gettis started every game for the Hawkeys in 2011 at right guard, and earned the teams Hayden Fry Extra Heartbeat award. He was named second team All-Big10. He became the Redskins fifth round draft selection in the 2012 NFL draft, and is expected to provide immediate depth as a reserve, with future starting potential.

Gettis is a player who can excel in a zone blocking system. He is very quick, and extremely explosive off the line of scrimmage, and he packs a very powerful hand punch. Aside from his physical attributes, Gettis is very fundamentally sound, having learned under the legend Kirk Ferentz, who is known throughout college football coaching circles to be amongst the best offensive line coaches in the country.

Iowa used both a man and zone scheme, and the transition to the Redskins zone blocking scheme should be an easy one for Gettis. The one area of concern for me is his weight, but if he is able to maintain a weight around 300 pounds without loosing any of his quickness, he could become a future starter for this team.
