Redskins Draft Prospect: Offensive Tackle Steve Demilio

Gardner Webb offensive linemen Steve Dimilio could be a great fit in the Redskins zone blocking scheme.

Coming from Gardner Webb, one would think your chances to make it in the NFL are quite slim, but Steven Demilio may buck that trend. Demilio is a player who can project to either guard or right tackle in the NFL. He shows exceptional foot quickness, and great ability to get to second level defenders. What I love most is once he gets a hold of his defender, he finishes the block.

Here are his numbers from the Wake Forest Pro Day:

40 yard: 4.90

Short Shuttle: 4.53

Demilio has collected quite a few awards and All-Star nominations over the past two years. He made First Team All-Big South in 2012 and Second Team All-Big South in 2011. He dominated the line of scrimmage in the FCS Senior Scout Bowl in Myrtle Beach, SC on December 15th where he started at right tackle. He was invited to play in the National Bowl on December 8th and the Beyond Sports Network Collegiate Showcase on March 8-10. He was also nominated for the Prograss International Scout Bowl on March 15th, the Texas vs the Nation All-Star Game on February 2nd, the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl on January 19th, and the Raycom College All-Star Football Classic also on January 19th.

Here are some clips from Demilio.

Demilio may be an excellent late-round draft pick or undrafted free agent for the Washington Redskins. We know how much Mike Shanahan values versatility in his linemen, and Demilio's ability to play both guard and tackle could help him find a home on the Redskins. He's also a great fit in a zone blocking scheme.
