Profile

Summary: Little certainly has the size to play offensive tackle in the NFL, as he is 6-foot-5 and 310 pounds with an arm-length of 35 ¼ inches. The native of Allen, Texas, was a highly-regarded high school prospect who settled into the left tackle spot at Mississippi in his freshman season and never let go of his starting job. Little has been projected as a potential first-round pick in multiple mock drafts.

Lance Zierlein of NFL.com wrote that Little has the prototype body for his position. He also noted that “while he wasn't asked to do it much in 2018, he has the athletic ability to handle zone-blocking duties, which could suit his skill set more than a physical rush attack. Little is a natural bender with good feet and pepper in his punch as [a] blind-side protector, but his average anchor and inconsistent body control create some concern.”

Stacking up: Draft analyst Dane Brugler, who writes for The Athletic, has Little as the No. 3 prospect at the position. NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks ranked Little as the No. 5 tackle. Daniel Jeremiah had Little as the 48th overall player on his list of the Top 50 prospects in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Quite the trio: Little was on the same high school football team with Oklahoma quarterback Kyler Murray and Oklahoma offensive lineman Cody Ford. The two Sooners, plus Little, are all expected to be drafted in April.
