Alabama A&M offensive tackle Jamaal Johnson-Webb is a good fit for the Atlanta Falcons offensive line depth problems. While they do have some talent who can start, the Falcons have just seven guys who would be guaranteed a role for the, likely, nine spots on the active roster. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's D. Orlando Ledbetter reported about the Falcons interest in Johnson-Webb:

This could be an intriguing fit for a team that could use some solid lineman depth. Johnson-Webb also makes a good project for a coach like Pat Hill to work with.

Scouting Report

Strengths

Jamaal Johnson-Webb is big, quick and strong. He's also got a ton of experience all around the offensive line to where he can be a versatile backup from the get-go. He pulls out well as a guard or tackle and can wall off the edge for running plays. He's able to take on pretty much anyone who comes his way and bulldozes them out of the way.

 

Weaknesses

For a guy who hasn't played against top competition, he has surprisingly few weaknesses. He doesn't maintain leverage well nor does he have extraordinary technique. He needs a ton of coaching and learning behind a player who understands the ins and outs of the game. Sitting behind technicians like Baker and Blalock would be very helpful for him in the long term.

 

How does he fit the Comrade Filter?

Johnson-Webb isn't known as a character concern in any way on or off the field. He's actually known as one of the toughest and hardest workers on the A&M team. As far as his leadership is concerned, he sets a great example and is a role model for the players around him. He just may not be a tremendously vocal guy out there.

 

Overview

Jamaal can play either guard or tackle in the pros and would be a shockingly good fit for almost every offensive-line scheme out there. He's intelligent and hard working, and the only real knock on his game seems to be a combined lack of technique with his lack of playing big named competition.

 

How he would fit into the Falcons' plans

Jamaal Johnson-Webb makes a ton of sense as a project pick in the sixth or even seventh round. He's got a ton of physical talent and could eventually play left tackle in the NFL with the right amount of technique. At 23-years-old, he could at the very least provide good, young depth at guard and tackle for the long term.
