Who are the 2023 Hawai’i NFL Draft prospects, and do their scouting report suggests that we could see a player from the school selected this year? With just four prospects from Hawai’i selected in the last 10 years, will we see anyone join that select group?
Hawai’i 2023 NFL Draft Scouting Reports
Ilm Manning, OL
Strengths: Sixty-game starter at left tackle who projects to guard or center in the NFL. Blocks with good lean, stays square, and effectively uses his hands. Strong, keeps his feet moving, and turns defenders from their angles of attack or tosses them to the ground. Makes good use of angles, works to get a pad on opponents, and moves relatively well. Fluid to the second level and always looks for someone to hit.
Weaknesses: Must do a better job bending his knees and blocking with leverage. Lacks footwork and range off the edge at left tackle. Not a zone-blocking lineman.
Overall: Manning was productive and durable the past five years at Hawaii, but he comes with average size and athleticism. He’s an intelligent prospect who should seamlessly transition to the interior offensive line. However, Manning must do a much better job blocking with leverage to have any shot of sticking on an NFL roster.
