Allen, TX | 6055 | 320 | 5.06E | 2020

A five-star recruit, Little was a part of the rotation early as a true freshman getting snaps at left tackle against the likes of LSU’s Arden Key, Auburn’s Carl Lawson and Texas A&M’s Myles Garrett. He is built a little high cut but he is well proportioned with very long arms and a naturally big frame to match his long limbs. He dropped 20 pounds after his freshman year from 340 pounds and will play closer to 320 for the 2017 season, which has already benefited his endurance in the spring. Little embraces contact, he has a strong initial punch and he’s highly athletic but he needs to improve his hand placement as well as his line of sight on moving targets. The Texas native covers a lot of ground in his kick slide and he has the balance needed to multitask countering contact and speed throughout his backpedal. Greg Little has the prototype left tackle build that teams are looking for at the next level but he has yet to earn the starting blindside job on his own team, so he has a lot to prove and is in need of a breakout season to cement his first round potential.
