Alt’s Latest Scouting Report

Alt had a phenomenal college career. As a junior in 2023, Alt was part of one of the most prolific offenses in Notre Dame history, ranking second in school history with 39.1 points per game.

Alt has the physical traits to be a solid player in the league, and his tape shows off uncanny athleticism and recovery capacity at that size.

In Alt’s scouting report, Pro Football Network’s draft analyst Ian Cummings said the offensive tackle is an extremely explosive and free-flowing athlete with unnatural foot speed and agility, and he’s his personal choice for OT1 over Penn State’s Olu Fashanu and Alabama’s JC Latham.

“With his flexibility, Alt is not only able to recover ground and keep his balance with ease, but he’s also able to acquire leverage effortlessly, align himself through reps, and absorb power by distributing his weight properly,” Cummings wrote.

“Those physical traits already set an incredible foundation for a prospect who’s proven to be smooth and disciplined with his footwork, combative and precise with his hands, and very instinctive as a stunt protector and run blocker.”

The 2023 season was an extremely promising step in the right direction for Alt, who got closer to true NFL-level strength and visibly improved his technique. Alt checks all the boxes to be a true blue-chip OT prospect and a franchise left tackle with an All-Pro ceiling.
