Overview:

Anthony Castonzo is a solid player but doesn’t really excel in any area. He’s a good athlete with a nice knee bend but he has to get much stronger. Right now he won’t generate much of a push in the run game and he has to work on his technique. He opens up out of his stance too early and can get beat by inside moves. Sometimes he gets too high and defenders can bull-rush him and knock him off-balance. He can be a good tackle at the next level but he has some things to work on.
