2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Tristan Wirfs, OT, Iowa

Career Snapshot
Three-year starter at right tackle who earned Second Team All-America honors as a junior in 2019. Named Honorable Mention All-Big Ten as a sophomore. Made four career starts at left tackle.

Positives
Tremendous college right tackle with potential on the left side. Bends his knees, blocks with leverage, and displays solid footwork off the edge. Patient in pass protection, works his hands throughout the action, and keeps his head on a swivel. Intelligent, effectively picks up stunts and twists thrown by opponents and always looks for someone to hit.

Quick out to the second level and shows the ability to redirect to linebackers. Strong and powerful in his lower body. Easily turns defenders from the action and gets movement as a run blocker to clear the way for ball carriers. Turned in a near-historic workout at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Negatives
Occasionally late with his hands. Not a nimble or agile blocker. Must improve his use of angles.

Analysis
Wirfs was a consistent force for Iowa the past two seasons and has enough skill to quickly start at right tackle in the NFL, and he could also get looks on the left side. He possesses size and upside and should be a dominant starter at the next level in time.
