7. Shane Lemieux, Oregon
Lemieux is a four-year starter from Oregon. He has 52 starts coming at left guard but could make a move over to the right side if needed. Lemieux has an interesting athletic frame, as you can see below.
Still, similar NFL bodies with that frame include Jonathan Cooper, Ben Grubbs, Jeff Allen, and Wyatt Teller. With that type of body, Lemieux offers strong, violent hands as a run blocker. However, he can miss at times and is often slow off with his movement. Check out his extensive draft profile.
Lemieux benefited from an Oregon offense that got the ball out of the quarterback’s hands quick. When it came to holding and sustaining blocks, he lost his power.
Here is what NFL.com had to say
"He’s an experienced, well-schooled guard. He’s athletic enough to perform in a variety of run schemes, but does his best work with combo blocks and double teams. Against NFL interior athletes, he will find it tougher to keep blocks centered and sustained. He should be OK as a run blocker early on, but his issues in pass protection might not be quickly fixed and could push him into the “good backup, eventual starter” category."
Lemieux is expected to go between rounds three and five. He has plenty of experience, although it all comes at left guard. Still, coming from an offense where the quarterback gets the ball out quick, Lemiuex could find a way to slot in as a starter in 2020.
