Samuel Cosmi is an intriguing player that has a rare combination of size, athleticism, and experience to boot. He was a 3-year starter at Texas, having played both left tackle and right tackle for extended stretches, but projects more as a right tackle at the NFL level.
Cosmi is on the leaner side for a tackle at 6’7″, 300lbs but can easily add some muscle to his frame with an NFL-level workout and diet regimen, similar to Raiders LT Kolton Miller. Even with his leaner frame, Cosmi still has the length and size to hold up in pass protection but that same length makes it difficult for him to get leverage against great pass rushers.
This is an aspect of his game that he will need to work on but is something that can be addressed with NFL-level coaching.
The former Longhorn was among the best offensive lineman in the Big 12 and was recognized as such by the conference, having been named Second-Team All-Big 12 in 2019 and First-Team All-Big 12 in 2020. He has improved year over year as a player and that trend should continue in the pros.
Many scouts project Cosmi as a late first-rounder but because of how deep this offensive tackle class is he will likely be available in the second round. He may not be able to start on day one of the 2021 season unless he has a stellar offseason but he has the tools and foundation to grow into an excellent player.
