2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Donald Stephenson, OT, Oklahoma

Donald Stephenson is a quickly rising offensive tackle prospect that went from middle round sleeper to a potential Day 2 draft pick.

Stephenson has nice physical tools with prototypical size and speed. He can seal the edge in pass protection and can take away pure pass rushers looking to bend the corner. Not a powerful drive blocker in run support. He needs to add some bulk to his lower half to anchor.

Potential character issues since he was suspended for the 2009 season for academics. He eventually earned his way back into the starting lineup the last two seasons.

Like most middle round prospects, Stephenson needs to clean up some technique problems. He will lunge and get his momentum leaning forward. This opens up problems against spin moves, slap and swim moves, or other quick lateral moves. By staying more upright with a good knee bend, he can move in any direction quickly and effectively.

With a good physical skill set and a frame that can add more strength with little trouble, Stephenson can contribute at either left or right tackle depending upon how quickly he can bulk up.
