Strengths: Is a big, intelligent, technically sound and strong interior offensive lineman prospect. Has good size and adequate-to-good overall strength. Is an engulfing type that won't overpower DL at the POA but will win with positioning and shoving style. Has a wide wingspan and decent quickness in his pass pro set. Has long arms and does a good job of keeping separation in pass pro. Also plays with solid leverage and balance. Lacks great lateral movement skills but plays under control and shows the ability to mirror and slide in the short-area. He is very aware and technically sound. Has great football intelligence and quickly adjusted when moved to OC. Is the type that does a very good job with line calls and is consistently in good position. He takes excellent angles and uses his hands extremely well. He has the size to engulf smaller DL and LB's when he gets in position.
Weaknesses: Might not be a great fit at OC in the NFL. Lacks ideal mobility and athleticism. Does not run very well and will struggle to reach some of his second-level blocks. Feet are heavy. Will struggle to hit moving targets in space at times. He plays under control and with balance in pass protection, but quick DL can beat him to the spot. He has good size and overall strength, but lack explosive upper body power and rarely jars defenders back with his hand punch. Will engulf, but rarely overpowers DL at the POA. Lacks a little bit of a mean streak and doesn't always finish blocks as aggressively as he should.
Overall: Mruczkowski's brother, Gene, is currently a center on the Patriots' offensive line. Scott started all 14 games at center as a junior in 2003 after starting at left guard his first two seasons (2001-'02). He made a smooth transition to the center position and remained there as a senior in 2004. He had a groin injury that prevented him from working out at the combine. Mruczkowski has very good size and above average strength. He is more of a mauler than anything, but he also has developed good technique. Mruczkowski is not a great athlete and the more space he is asked to play in the less effective he becomes. In all reality, while he has excelled in his move to center late in his college career, his future will more than likely be at guard in the NFL. Overall, Mruczkowski's size, football intelligence and versatility as an interior offensive lineman that can backup the OG and OC spots in the NFL make him worth looking at early on Day 2.
