Strengths
Good bull rusher in a compact frame. Shows good lateral quickness and speed. Has a good motor. Moved around the line at Louisville. Leaves everything on the field.
Weaknesses
Did not show up against top level competition. Has been handled by other pro prospects throughout his career. Slow to diagnose the action on occasion and gets out of position.
Overall Analysis
Rankins is a high effort guy with a low center of gravity. He has the look of an effective 3 technique tackle and has the quickness to get consistent penetration. His size will be a concern for some teams but his energy level might over come it. He needs to add some leg strength in order to hold the point better as he got pushed around by Auburn's tackles.
