STRENGTHS - Weaver has excellent size with long arms to consider for the position at the NFL level. He plays very physical and aggressive in all situations, finishing through the whistle. He flashes a strong punch and shows very good hand strength to lock-on and control the defender. He has very good ability to sit and anchor down in pass protection, and should do well as a physical player inside as a guard in the NFL.
WEAKNESSES - Weaver does not look pretty on the football field. He is a below average overall athlete, who struggles to play on his feet with balance, especially after contact. He is heavy-legged and slow-footed on the move and shows very little lateral agility in pass protection. He lacks the foot quickness to be considered as a tackle prospect and will get moved inside to play guard where he has a chance because of his physicality.
SUMMARY - Weaver is an intriguing prospect with great size and long arms for the position, but he is a below average athlete. He played tackle in college, but he doesn't have the footwork to play out on the edge in the NFL. He has marginal foot quickness and lateral agility, and he struggles to get to the edge of the line. Weaver doesn't look like he has control of his body at times and struggles with balance on film. However, he is a very physical and aggressive run blocker who can maul defenders because of his functional strength. He is at his strength as an in-line blocker who can strike and pancake a defender easily, but he struggles to find and sustain blocks against moving targets in space. In pass protection, he shows the ability to sit and anchor down against a bull rusher, but he also shows very limited lateral agility and recovery ability against quicker, faster defenders with pass rush moves. He certainly does not have the foot quickness to project to the tackle position at the next level. Overall, he has great size and length, but limited athletic upside to develop for the next level. He is a solid seventh-round or free agent signing by a team due to his physical traits and functional strength.
