After a solid showing at the Senior Bowl, where could Michigan football’s Andrew Stueber wind up in the 2022 NFL draft?

It took former Michigan football offensive tackle awhile to get significant snaps, but once he did, boy did he hit the ground running. It is very hard to earn snaps when you’re a little-known three-star recruit, but Andrew Stueber took over as a starter last year, following an injury, and the rest is history.

Helping lead Michigan football to its best season in almost 25 years, Steuber was an anchor at right tackle for Michigan this past season. We take a look at his strengths and weaknesses and determine whether he has what it takes to get drafted.

Position: Offensive Tackle

Height: 6’7

Weight: 338 pounds

Class: Senior-5th year (declared for 2022 NFL Draft)


  • Has quick enough feet to adjust to when the rush is coming
  • Effective on zone traps and can bend knees with good core strength to absorb bull rushes
  • Dips shoulder and moves feet to get leverage when necessary
  • Highly efficient and effective in short-yardage situations
  • Has a mean streak about himself and is nasty in run blocking, with a killer instinct
  • Has above-average mobility which allows him to keep his body square to counters
  • Above-average awareness for limited starting experience
  • Good at getting to the second level


  • Isn’t a quick blocker and height with width can cause him to be slow out of his stance
  • Allows inside pressure when technique gets sloppy
  • Struggles to consistently block in motion
  • Doesn’t have natural foot speed to cover a lot of ground
  • Can lose leverage battles and generally plays his pad level too high
  • Occasionally late off the snap which causes plays to potentially be blown up
  • Height can be bad for short-yardage, short-area situations, as the defender can get under or around him
  • Can whiff on blocks after initially beaten
  • Lacks range and lateral quickness


Overall, from where Stueber was and where he’s gotten to since, was pretty miraculous. He was first-team All-Big Ten this past year and there is a lot to like about his potential.

He’s going to make his money on being a mauling run-blocking specialist. He’s not the best in pass protection, but put him on a team with other good run blocking lineman, and he will succeed.

He just finished participating in the Senior Bowl in the last few days, so that will be important for his stock. Supposedly, he had a good week of practice, as he was able to show off his positional versatility and he had quicker feet than people thought during 1-on-1’s.

He also was able to block against various pass-rushing techniques, like spin moves and rips, and all of the things I mentioned are things that were tabbed as weaknesses for him heading into the NFL Draft.

He will still have the NFL Scouting Combine and Michigan’s Pro Day to move up even further on boards so there is potential for him to be drafted sooner than anticipated.

For right now, without having seen his combine and Michigan Pro Day performance, he is probably a Day 3 selection, anywhere from rounds 5-7. He can develop into a future high-ceiling prospect. He has the chance to go at the backend of Day 2.

For right now, teams will probably be hesitant to draft him higher because he was so new to starting at Michigan and despite earning first-team All-Big Ten, is still raw and needs to clean up some things.
