What the scouts are saying:

"Mewhort arrived at Ohio State in 2009 as an all-Toledo City League player who participated in the Under Armour All-American game. He is a versatile offensive line prospect who started multiple games for the Buckeyes at left tackle, right guard and right guard. He concluded his career with 39 consecutive starts and playing in 49 straight games overall. Mewhort looked strong during drills at the Senior Bowl, making it a chore for rushers to line up across from him. The former Buckeye blocker lined up primarily at right tackle and did an excellent job sinking his lower body at the point of attack to anchor, dig his cleats in the ground and be a stubborn lineman to move from his spot. Mewhort utilizes every inch of his tall, stout frame and large wingspan to engulf and control rushers. Based off tape and his performance in Mobile, Mewhort looks every bit the part of a future starting right tackle in the NFL." (CBSSports.com)

"Thickly built, physical, highly competitive lineman who manned left tackle competently in college, but is better suited for the right side in the pros. Has starter-caliber strength, athleticism and technique supplemented with desirable intangibles. Versatility to play guard or left tackle in a pinch adds to value." (Nolan Nawrocki, NFL.com)

"Easy to like when he locks out, extends and controls with a strong grip. Attempts to consistently find contact through hands, which helps him mirror. Has strong inside arm bar to prevent tighter lines. Has plenty of arm length and uses it." (Josh Norris, Rotoworld)
