Today the Cincinnati Bengals claimed Jason Weaver off the waiver wire from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Weaver was a standout lineman for Southern Mississippi last season. I had the pleasure to sit down with Jason last year in an interview, you can find the interview here.
Weaver has excellent size with long arms to consider for the position at the NFL level. He plays very physical and aggressive in all situations, finishing through the whistle. He flashes a strong punch and shows very good hand strength to lock-on and control the defender. He has very good ability to sit and anchor down in pass protection, and should do well as a physical player inside as a guard in the NFL.Do you follow the NFL Draft?
