Displays good technique and bend in all areas of his game and can really sit into his base and anchor inside. Continues to rework his hands and fight for inside leverage and is really tough to disengage from in the run game. Now, gets a bit ahead of himself on slide down blocks at times and will lose his balance trying to stay on defenders down the line. However, he’s a better in-line run blocker than given credit for, quickly firing off the football, pumping his legs through contact and creating a bit of surge inside while maintaining his balance through the play.
Snaps and steps quickly and showcases natural lateral ability, smoothly changing directions and keeping his base down when asked to mirror in space. Is surprisingly heavy handed, consistently is able to get under the pad level of defenders and does a nice job moving his feet and sliding with opponents through contact. Occasionally gets caught overextending into blocks from his upper body and can be slipped at times, but for the most part is very patient and technically sound into contact.
Impression: You can tell he comes from a family of former NFL linemen. He’s technically sound, moves well through contact, sticks to blocks and looks like a guy capable of starting from day one at the next level at either guard or center. However, to me he looked more impressive on tape as a guard."
This senior is already one of the most pro-ready prospects in the 2011 draft class. Wisniewski is blessed with excellent physical skills for an interior lineman, possessing quick feet, good burst out of his stance, wide shoulders, great knee bend, and an excellent upper body strength. The Penn State product is extremely adept at pulling and reaching the second level due to his nimble feet and once he gets his hands on defensive linemen, he finishes his blocks with aplomb. Where Wisniewski really shines though is in the mental aspects of the game, which have allowed him to be a first team All-Big Ten performer as both a center and a guard for the Nittany Lions.
There is very little lacking in terms of technique as the Penn State product’s refinement in this department is beyond his years. Standing at 6’3” Wisniewski has more than enough length to line up on Sundays at either center of guard. However, the fact that he tips the scales at merely 297 pounds could limit him to the center position and make him useful in only certain pro schemes. He may be a master technician, but when he faces 340-pound nose tackles in the NFL his current frame simply won’t be enough to handle the situation one on one. It is indisputable that Wisniewski needs to add weight to his frame, especially in his lower body, if he is going to make it big in the league where they play for pay. It appears he is headed back to the guard position as a senior after starting at center in 2009 but things could change depending on how the other PSU linemen perform."
Negatives: Narrow base... Will lunge into some blocks... Inconsistent balance... Not especially strong at POA... Lacks ideal size at Guard, will need to add some bulk... Has some past injury concerns."
As for his skills on the field, Wisniewski is very technical and fundamentally sound. Stays low with a good center of gravity, using his feet and body lean to maintain leverage and position. Not particularly strong and lacks a quick twitch for that initial burst. Very intelligent player who understands how to hold his ground. Needs to gain upper body strength and not overextend his arms.
A hard-worker who understands the commitment necessary to be a professional football player. Obvious strong pedigree with close family being NFL players. Must bulk up to play guard in the NFL. Likely a good fit in a zone blocking scheme, which utilizes his talents and doesn't rely on athleticism.
Wisniewski projects as a second round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft."
