Pros: Aaron Frost is a versatile OL prospect that offers inside/outside value. He played guard every game during the 2019 season. His plays with a nasty and physical style. He has a powerful grip and latch to drive/wash defenders. I love his propensity to displace defenders in the run game to create lanes for his backs. Frost is seen on tape driving defenders out of the frame until the whistle is blown. He has good lower-body burst to coil through his hips to pop into his target at the snap. He displays the requisite lateral quickness and agility to protect the edges for his QB. He operates in a zone-blocking scheme with solid hip fluidity to reach, turn, and seal opponents. He showcases the ability to reset his hands after landing initial punches in pass pro.
Cons: Aaron Frost is rumored to have 32.25-inch arms. This presents an issue on tape when longer-armed rushers are able to fully lock out. NFL teams typically prefer better measurements for OTs. As a result, he could be kicked inside at guard full-time in the league. His hand placement can improve as he does not consistently protect his chest with wide placement. At times, he seems overzealous against wide-angle/nine rushers, causing him to gain too much depth in his diagonal kick slide. As a result, he opens space for rushers to counter with inside moves. While I love his physicality and aggressiveness, he can be too aggressive in his sets, leading to balance issues. His frame does not seem filled out—he can benefit from adding some weight and power to his frame to anchor versus power rushers.
