He also commands double teams, he is hard to take down, he breaks tackles with ease, he is a consistent play maker, and he is a solid redzone weapon. He also opens holes up for his backs, is good in pass blocking, and he always gets enough yards needed. He does not have great speed, he misses some blocks at times. With that said, and he is currently dealing with an injury, which may drop his stock a bit. Butt should be a day 2 pick, somewhere in the 3rd round are when it is all said and done.
