Strong Points

Multi-year starter at right tackle with good size, strength and power. Solid straight-line quickness and quick feet. Very experienced in pass protection because of the nature of the Washington State offense. Aggressive player who consistently looks to finish. Quick out of his stance and shows the ability to get to the second level. Enough strength and power to get some movement in the run game.

Weak Points

He plays like a short-armed guy. He shows he has some bend, but Madison has tightness in his hips, causing him to bend at the waist when both run and pass blocking. While he has straight-line quickness, he lacks top lateral agility and recovery. His anchor is average at best.

The Way We See It

Though he was a mainstay at tackle, his best position may be inside at right guard. The combination of Madison not maximizing his length and his limited lateral agility will make it difficult for him to be outside on a consistent basis. Can get a team out of a game at tackle but his limitations will hurt his club if he had to play more than a game or so outside. He is built and moves like a guard, and his aggressive nature bodes well for playing inside. May never become a starter but he can be a valuable backup. The team that drafts Madison may also want to try him at center
