Jordan Mills: Video Highlights for Former Louisiana Tech OT
Playing at Louisiana Tech in the WAC, Jordan Mills isn't a household name, but he's found himself in that sleeper offensive tackle category in the 2013 NFL draft.
At 6'5'' and 316 pounds with 34-inch arms, this Bulldogs standout who played right tackle in 2012 has the natural size and talent to be a mid-round selection.
Here are some of the top plays of Jordan Mills' collegiate career.
Two-Level Block vs. Texas A&M in 2012
On this play, Mills lined up at his usual right tackle spot and made an NFL-level block on two Texas A&M defenders.
First, he crashed inside to help on a double-team on the defensive tackle. Then, he smoothly transitioned to the middle linebacker and kept him out of the intended running lane with a fundamentally sound block.
Pass-Block vs. Illinois in 2012
On this play, Mills instantly shaded to his right in an obvious passing situation. Instead of lunging, Mills demonstrated great patience and was able to anchor when he engaged with the Illinois defensive end.
Second-Level Block vs. Rice in 2012
There wasn't much to this block, as Mills simply sprinted to the second level at the snap, but it demonstrated his explosiveness off the line and quickness to get beyond the opposition's defensive line.
Sustained Block vs. Texas-San Antonio in 2012
Mills showed his strength and mirroring ability on this play.
Working at right tackle, Mills locked onto the Texas-San Antonio defensive lineman and didn't allow him to execute any countermoves after initially getting stymied.
Down Block on Touchdown Pass vs. Texas A&M in 2012
This was a simple yet effective block from Mills against Texas A&M in 2012.
On a fade pass to wide receiver Quinton Patton, Mills crashed down to avoid any inside pressure on the Louisiana Tech quarterback. There was plenty of power exhibited on this play.
