Name: Dan Feeney

School: Indiana

Position fit: Guard

Stats to know: Feeney missed four games with injury in 2016. In nine games, Feeney surrendered one sack, one hit and four hurries.

What he does best:

  • Demonstrates good footwork on the interior, with good angles to block.
  • Competes on every play.
  • Good run-blocker when he gets into the block (nice base and feet upon contact).
  • Improved his run-blocking grade in each of the last three seasons.
  • While he doesn’t create big movement in the run game, he’s difficult to shed.
  • Showed versatility having to play guard and tackle.
  • Can make the necessary reach blocks to play in a zone scheme.
  • Excellent in pass protection when playing guard. Overall, allowed only two sacks, four hits and 19 hurries on 1,239 pass block attempts over the last three years.
  • Only penalized 10 times in three years.

 Biggest concern:

  • Experienced more struggles in pass protection when playing right tackle. Susceptible to being pulled down and giving up the edge.
  • Balance issues when playing right tackle. Falls down from time to time.
  • Not overly mobile on the go.
  • Well-coached at IU; is his ceiling much higher?
  • More quasi-bad plays than good plays.

Bottom line: While 2016 was a bit more up and down due to his injuries and playing both right guard and right tackle, Feeney has a strong body of work within Indiana’s offense. He’s a strong pass protector when playing guard and he’s improved enough in the run game to look like a viable player in a zone-heavy scheme at the next level.
