Overview:

O’Neill, who finished his career at Pittsburgh, has great size, he has good speed, and is a good pass blocker. He is also a good run blocker, and opens holes up for his backs. He is very powerful, and he has good athleticism. He is very active using his hands, and arms to get leverage, and not allowing defenders to get around him. Her easily pushed around defender, and he does a good job of bending his knees, showing athleticism. He is also a tough nosed player, he has good instincts, and is a mauler. He also gets a good push on the defensive line, and does not get pushed around that easily. On the other hand, he has issues with speedy edge rushers at times, but that does not hurt his game. With that said, I view O’Neill as a potential late 1st-round pick, to an early 2nd-round pick.
