PFF graded him a 99.9 run-blocking grade. Click here to check him out at the NFL combine, where he scored the fifth-fastest 10-yard split in the 40-yard dash among linemen (1.65), despite weighing in at 325 pounds. Players his size should not move the way Penning can. He has an excellent pre-snap bend to set up his initial poo on contact to win leverage. At this stage, fleur-de-lis fans should not expect Penning to be the next Terron Armstead. He needs to work on his technique and reduce his holding penalties. But, with the all QBs on the draft board, the Saints - and let's face it, a Drew Brees replacement would be nice - were excited to grab the OT.

Grade: C
