Draft 2024 – Pick #10: KT Leveston, G, Kansas State

Full-time college tackle who might need to become a full-time guard in order to minimize his weaknesses and maximize his strengths. Leveston doesn’t play with the best pad level but still flashes impressive pop and an ability to maul and strain at the point of attack. His hands and body control get sloppy at times and could limit his consistency against NFL competition. Leveston’s background in pass protection at tackle should help with a move inside to guard, but only if he’s quicker with his punch. Leveston doesn’t always look fluid and clean, but he has the power traits to become a good backup who can step in and start if needed.


  • Improved body composition has translated into better football from him.
  • Wide pass sets as a guard will be challenging to maneuver around.
  • Ability to bounce and brake when recovering from a bull rush.
  • Bulldozes opponents into a new gap on double-teams and down blocks.
  • Good maul-and-brawl mentality when his hands get locked in as run blocker.
  • Has adequate foot quickness for short pulls and to get into space if needed.


  • Needs to have hands more punch-ready and work with better timing in pass pro.
  • Play can creep out on his toes, opening him to rush counters.
  • Tall pad level and sloppy entry points lead to sustain inefficiency.
  • Inconsistent finding his target and adjusting to movement as move blocker.
  • Below-average hand technique and body control as run blocker.
