2025 NFL Draft: Alabama IOL Tyler Booker Draft Profile and Scouting Report

Tyler Booker has seen time in 25 games for the Crimson Tide through his first two seasons of college football. He has started in 14 of those games, with the majority of his starts coming as a true sophomore in 2023. Though the majority of his experience is at left guard, he was able to show his interior versatility by bouncing back and forth between the right and left sides of the line as a true freshman.

Tyler Booker 40 Time

Projected 40 Time: 5.28 seconds

Though he is only 20 coming into the year, Booker will have a solid catalogue of experience to lean on with over 1,200 snaps and some college football playoff experience to his name as he enters his junior season. He has the appropriate measurables for an NFL interior lineman with his thick build and decent height. Our projected 40 time of 5.28 seconds would be considered solid as it’s on par with the league average.

Tyler Booker is an incredibly strong player and shows an impressive ability to displace defenders in the run game. His ability to control defenders once he gets his hands on is immediately noticeable on his film. Booker’s strong lower half not only helps him secure run blocks and open running lanes with ease, but also allows him to hold his ground in pass protection. His anchor is consistent and causes problems for interior rushers.

While his play strength and aggressive play style is his biggest upside, Booker tends to lean on defenders in the run game. This can allow defenders to shed blocks more effectively at the second level. He also seemed to struggle with recognizing stunts and twists in pass protection. This would show up as missed pick ups or failing to pass off defenders to the next man.

Recruiting Bio
