Scouting Report
Potter enjoyed a solid college career for Boise State, earning first-team all-Western Athletic Conference honors as a sophomore and junior, and being a unanimous first-team all-Mountain West Conference selection as a senior. In his final season, Potter was the leader of an offensive line that allowed eight sacks - tied for the fewest among FBS schools. Though he was a star with the Broncos, scouts wonder if he'll be able to hang in the trenches against consistently bigger competition in the NFL. Potter has the height and instincts needed to protect the quarterback on the edge, but he's raw technically and does not possess great foot speed. Those drawbacks could prevent Potter from hearing his name called before the fourth round. His draft status may have slightly improved after a decent showing at the NFL scouting combine, as his 7.49-second time in the 3-cone drill tied for fourth among offensive linemen. Though he does not rank among the elite tackle prospects in this year's class, Potter has the chance to be a serviceable NFL lineman if he can continue to learn and improve his technique while biding his time as a backup.
