Three-year starter at right tackle and five-time recipient of the Robert P. “Yank” Ludwig Football Scholarship for his involvement in community service.
Hard-working college left tackle with limited upside. Stays square, keeps his feet moving and gets his hands into opponents. Strong, controls opponents once engaged at the point and stays square. Effective position blocker who seals opponents from the action. Displays outstanding vision and wherewithal and gives a lot of effort. Works to bend his knees and blocks with leverage for the most part.
Does not correctly place his hands into opponents on a consistent basis. On the ground too often and must improve his blocking balance. Lacks footwork and lateral blocking range and gets exploited off the edge.
Pyke was a terrific college lineman but has athletic and space limitations. He may offer possibilities as a backup right tackle or guard.
