Ryan Stanchek
6-3/298 West Virginia
5.31 Senior

Pros: He is your classic zone blocking lineman. Does a nice job getting good position. Has a mean streak and not afraid to chop block a guy. But does a good job cut blocking. Has good technique in pass protection. Uses his hands well and has a nice punch.

Cons: Doesn't have great strength and won't push defenders off the ball. Lacks the footwork and size to match up on the edge.

Overview: Stanchek starts at left tackle for WVU, but is a really good fit as a guard in a zone blocking scheme. He's overshadowed by Isdaner because he lacks his size potential, but is the most consistent blocker on WVU's line.

NFL Forecast: I foresee Stanchek being a solid starter on a team like Houston, where he is the prototypical guard in the Alex Gibbs blocking scheme. He is not a power player, but is capable and steady and gives you high effort. He'll need to get a bit stronger for the next level, but if a team like Houston or Oakland picks him up he could be ready to contribute within a year or so. He has starter potential, and while he won't be a top starter, he'll be one of those steady guys in the mold of a Mark Schlereth.

ATL Forecast: Stanchek could be a capable starter here in Atlanta, but isn't what the team is really looking for at the guard position. The team uses a lot of zone blocking, but prefers it's guys to be bigger and more capable of moving the pile rather than relying on good positioning. At best, Stanchek would probably be a backup here. Unless the Falcons tried to develop him as a center, but he lacks experience there.

Value: Stanchek would be a good pickup in the middle rounds for a team like Houston or Oakland and would merit a fourth round pick in those schemes. For every one else he's probably a late round pick that should go around the sixth round.
