Scouting Report on Christian Westerman

by Barry Every - 10/08/2010
  • SpeedDivision I Player
  • SizeBlue Chip
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityBlue Chip
  • Foot QuicknessBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Massive shoulders and chest with good powerbase. He is built similar to 2010 Rivals100 player James Hurst but more muscular.
Needs Improvement: Sometimes on short-yardage running plays Westerman becomes more of a Greco-Roman wrestler and uses all upper-body strength and little lower-body power to get a push. When he pass blocks, he has a tendency to turn to the side while sliding his feet, opening a direct lane to the quarterback. Both of these are technique issues that can be corrected.
Most Impressive: He is a true run mauler that doesn't mind getting nasty in order to intimidate and dominate his opponent. His hand placement is tremendous, enabling him to control the defender. Westerman is also nimble enough on his feet to get downfield and make blocks on smaller defensive players. His body type and athleticism will allow him to possibly play four of the five line positions at the next level.
Conclusion: Most offensive linemen redshirt, but if he stays focused and uses his mean streak on the gridiron he will surely see early playing time. Don't be surprised if he starts off as a guard and eventually cross trains into the tackle position.
