2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Matt Hennessy, C, Temple Owls

Career Snapshot
Three-year starter who was named Third Team All-America as a junior in 2019. Missed one game due to a concussion in 2019, two games due to an undisclosed injury in 2018 and one game due to an undisclosed injury in 2017.

Positives
Fast-rising center who is developing a complete game. Sets with a wide base, bends his knees, and blocks with terrific fundamentals. Patient in pass protection, shows good vision and keeps his head on a swivel. Nasty, explosive at the point of attack, and aggressively goes after opponents. Plays with consistent leverage, fluidly moves on his feet and shows the ability to adjust and redirect in motion. Effective with his hands, squares into larger defenders and seals them from the action.

Negatives
Doesn’t get a lot of movement as a run blocker. Possesses average size.

Analysis
Hennessy was a terrific center who showed consistent progress the past two seasons and went on to perform incredibly well during the Senior Bowl. He comes with big upside and is a second-day prospect who could quickly break into a starting lineup at the next level.
