Prediction & How He Improves Cougars in 2013: 

Meyer has great size for an offensive lineman, but will need to put on a little more weight for when he plays for the Cougars. Given how many offensive linemen the Cougars already have, I can see Meyer redshirting his first year, so that he can put on some more weight and doesn’t waste a year of eligibility. Meyer creates good push when blocking and is good at pass blocking too.

This will be key because the Cougars focus most of their attention on the passing game and in order for the Cougars to have success, the quarterback needs all the time he can get. Meyer wasn’t only a stand out in football for his high school, but in basketball as well. This shows that Meyer is pretty athletic and will be able to move down the field well on no huddle calls.

I still see Meyer as a work in progress, but he does have the potential to be a solid offensive lineman for the Cougars by his junior or senior year if he can fix a few issues with his blocking. Overall this a good pick up for Mike Leach and his staff because Meyer will be able to help out mostly with his pass blocking skills.
