Overview:

Lamp has great size, he provides good protection for his quarterback, he is a good pass blocker, a good run blocker, a tough nosed player, and he gives his quarterback enough time to find an open receiver, or run the ball. He also opens holes for his backs, he bends his knees showing his athleticism, he is very athletic, just a mauler, he gets a good push on the defensive line, and he holds up well in pass protection. He also does a good job of adjusting to speedy edge rushers, and he does not get pushed around that easily at the line of scrimmage. On the other hand, he does not have great speed, and I am not sure if he fits better as a Tackle or Guard, if he is a Tackle, he is more than likely a Right Tackle. He also missed the Senior Bowl with a leg injury. With that said, I believe Lamp is a late 1st round, to early 2nd round pick.
