2014 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

David Yankey, G , Stanford

A trend of guards pushing their way into the first round has taken hold over the last few years. Yankey could be the next to accomplish such a feat, but if not, he still is a very talented and powerful lineman who should have a long, solid career.

Yankey anchored Stanford's offensive line last year and although he did play tackle at times in his collegiate career, most NFL scouts are in agreement his future is at guard. He doesn't quite have the necessary quickness or foot speed to handle edge rushers.

Great in-line run blocker and drives defenders off their mark with superior power. Uses and understands how to get leverage, but could be a bit more consistent with staying low later in games. Elite football instincts. High intelligence. Always on assignment and can quickly diagnose defensive fronts.

Good heavy punch when in pass protection. Must continue to improve against faster pass-rushers. A bit heavy footed at times and will lumber in open spaces. Excellent nasty streak. Vicious, mauler's attitude in the trenches.

Yankey projects as a late first to early second round selection in the 2014 NFL Draft.
