Alijah Vera-Tucker Highlights
Alijah Vera-Tucker Draft Profile
Alijah Vera-Tucker is extremely versatile, looking like he could thrive at either tackle or guard in the NFL. He is consistent, calculated in his movements and he seemingly knows where everyone is on the field. His awareness is off the charts. Vera-Tucker also has great feet, finishing blocks in the running game.
Vera-Tucker isn’t a phenomenal athlete by any means, which leads many to believe he would be better suited for guard in the NFL. Playing in the Pac-12, he rarely saw NFL talent across from him. Oregon’s Kayvon Thibodeaux may be the only NFL talent he matched up against, and Vera-Tucker lost that battle.
Alijah Vera-Tucker Draft Projection
Alijah Vera-Tucker is currently projected to be drafted by the Los Angeles Chargers at No. 13 overall.
