Three-year starter named Honorable Mention All-Big 12 in 2016. Moved to left guard for his final two seasons after starting 13 games at left tackle in 2014.
Underrated blocking prospect with next-level size. Quick off the snap, keeps his feet moving and anchors in pass protection. Patient, stays square and jolts defenders with tremendous hand punch. Strong, fires out to the second level and controls opponents once engaged in a block.
Does not bend his knees or block with proper pad level. Late with his hands. Ducks his head and doesn’t finish blocks.
Pankey possesses next-level size and strength but must improve his mechanics to have a place in the NFL.
