Pros: Forsythe looks like a man among boys. The senior offensive tackle’s massive 6-foot-9, 312 pound frame is accompanied by long arms and elite strength. Forsythe’s strength and arms are accompanied with decent hand placement and a nastiness that will be intriguing to NFL teams.
Cons: Forsythe’s grit is negated by a lot of his flaws. The most concerning being his athleticism. Forsythe is a below average athlete who doesn’t have the bend or explosiveness to deal with NFL edge rushers. Forsythe in particular had issues against K’Lavon Chaisson in Florida’s matchup with LSU. He also has a slow kick-step which often puts him at a disadvantage throughout a game. Forsythe also has slow and agile feet that prove costly when rushers make inside moves.
Overview: Forsyth’s strength and grit is fun to watch on film, but likely won’t transfer over to anything more than a depth offensive tackle at the NFL level. Forsythe’s lack of athleticism will ultimately be his downfall as a tackle and he unfortunately does not have the athleticism to be a starting guard.
