How one NFL draft expert sees Andrew Vorhees translating to the NFL

·1 min read

In 2021 at USC, Andrew Vorhees played in 12 games and logged 902 snaps for the Trojans. He allowed 11 QB hurries, 2 QB hits, and one sack while playing the majority of his snaps at left guard, the rest at left tackle.

Vorhees is USC’s most experienced offensive lineman, capable of playing four of the five spots on the offensive line. The former three-star prospect began the 2021 season as USC’s left guard starter before he shifted to left tackle in the final stretch of the season.

The Northern California native will enter his sixth season with 44 game appearances and 37 career starts. I talked to NFL draft expert Bill Carroll about Vorhees and what he needs to work on.

Trojans Wire: As a draft expert, how would you grade senior OL Andrew Vorhees?

Bill Carroll: If I were truly a “draft expert,” you wouldn’t be able to afford me!  But in all seriousness, I am a little lower than some; he’s an older prospect, he was born 1/21/1999, which means he turns 24 prior to his first NFL game.

He is powerful, but not always technically precise with hand placement, and his foot quickness is frankly just above-average. I see a top 75 prospect (third-round grade). I think his versatility on the offensive line helps, though.
