Bio: 
First-year starter who began his Seminoles career as a defensive end. Started 13 games at right tackle in 2017. Made six starts at the position as a junior. Combined for six tackles (2.5 for loss) during his first two seasons at FSU.
Pos: 
Big-bodied tackle best on the strong side. Blocks with proper lean, keeps his feet moving and stays square. Strong at the point, effective with his hands and blocks with leverage. Displays terrific vision and awareness, keeps his feet moving and plays with a nasty attitude. Explosive at the point and fires off the snap into blocks.
Neg: 
Lacks footwork and overall agility. Does a bit of bending at the waist. Cannot slide off the edge and overextends in his attempt to stop pass rushers.
Analysis: 
Leonard showed development last season and has the underlying ability to eventually develop into a backup at the next level but will need time to finish his game. He’s likely headed for the practice squad this fall.
