Bergstrom is a very good mover in space and works well to the second level, so although he hasn't played the position, he could be an option for teams to work at guard. Either way, Bergstrom is a solid, reliable, risk-free prospect who could eventually develop into a starter and should settle into a backup role nicely early on; late-round value.
He looks natural in his pass set and gets his hands readied early to fight off rushers. He isn't very strong, but relies on feet and technique to work on the line and make reliable blocks.
He is not aggressive in his blocks and is more of a catcher who uses his feet and hands to react and mirror. Bergstrom is what he is: Reliable, big, and a student of the game, but he isn't going to blow anyone away at the next level."
Lacks the range to routinely reach speed off the edge. However, understands angles and his limitations and will overextend into contact in order to push defenders past the play. Displays above-average short area quickness for his size, gets a bit wide with his footwork, but collects himself quickly in tight areas, re-directs well and will lunge into his target. Isn’t a real natural puncher however, isn’t a guy who in space can hold up laterally.
But, because of his size and good hand placement can anchor with some consistency on contact. Is heavy handed, but will struggle with balance through the play. Nevertheless, he’s tough, gritty and works hard to keep the outside of the pocket clean. Isn’t a great move player in the run game.
Seems to lumber in the open field, doesn’t have much range and struggles to reach/breakdown on contact. Displays some short area quickness off the line when asked to step and seal. Takes good angles off the ball, has a little snap at the point, but again struggles to balance himself through the play. Lunges off the ball without moving his feet when playing from a three point stance and struggles with pad level from a two point stance.
Impression: A big, strong tackle prospect with some short area quickness for his size. But struggles with flexibility in pass protection and looks limited in what he can offer an NFL offense. A fringe roster guy as a right tackle prospect only."
Run Blocking: Understands angles in the run game. He’s a gritty run blocker with above-average short area quickness. He isn’t a great move blocker and would appear a better fit in a power running scheme. Limited range and lunges into contact in the open field. He missed a ton of blocks in the open field. Would be better suited as an in-line blocker but will have to adjust to coming off the line low. He’s a tall player at almost 6’6” so his pad level off the snap gets a little high.
Bottom Line: Tony Bergstrom isn’t the most impressive player but he a tough, gritty guy that finds ways to win matchups. He played tackle at Utah but will have to move inside in the NFL due to issues getting to the edge.
Draft Projection: 4."
Could use more sand in his pants and do a better job anchoring — lacks ideal base strength and is too easily overpowered.
Frequently falls off blocks and does not finish.
Lines up at right tackle for the Utes, but projects inside as a backup in the pros. Developmental project."
Mauling run blocker who gets off the snap quickly and will stay with block, but will lunge at times and lose balance and leverage; also not very agile in space and isn’t going to make many blocks on the move; gets a good punch when protecting the pocket, understands angles and leverage, and works hard to keep the outside of the pocket clean;
Indeed, did not give up a sack in 2010, but still likely lacks the quickness, flexibility and agility to handle fast outside pass rushers at the next level; older player who took two years off doing mission will be 26 when he heads to first NFL training camp next summer; mature player who is married and is a good student majoring in chemical engineering."
