Jason Pinkston

Height: 6’3
Weight: 317
College: Pittsburgh
40 Time: 5.28
Class: Senior
Stock:
Projected: 4th-5th Round

Overview:

Jason Pinkston is a bit of a project but flashes the potential to be a very good tackle or guard at the next level. He is very strong and possesses long arms. Once he locks onto you it’s pretty much over. However, he doesn’t always do this. He needs to place his hands better and keep his feet moving. Too many times he either whiffs on blocks or bends at the waist which allows defenders to easily escape out of his grasp. He shows flashes but he has to get coached up to be more consistent in the pros.
