    NFL Analysis by Lance Zierlein:

    Overview
    Tackle prospect with below-average arm length, average athleticism and above-average nasty. While he’s likely to be tagged as a right tackle, he may have the tools to fit into a swing tackle role if needed. He’s got good natural strength but some lower body tightness hinders leverage both as a drive blocker and in his pass anchor. McKivitz can be a little tardy on backside cutoffs, but moves well enough to handle blocking duties in space. His dirt-dog mentality will be welcomed in offensive line rooms, but he will have to fight to be become an NFL starter.

    Strengths
    Four-year starting tackle playing three years at right and one year at left
    Bonafide dirt dog with chippy demeanor
    Adequate range in space, running feet to sustain while moving
    Gets feet into positioning before engaging
    Combo blocks executed with timing
    Upward, heavy hand strikes provide some leverage at point of attack
    Upper body power and hand strength clinch and secure defenders
    Finishes blocks with some edge and gets under opponents’ skin
    Generally poised and well-balanced pass sets
    Ability to limit edge speed with quick-sets

    Weaknesses
    Has shorter arms for a tackle and lack of length shows up at times
    Displays some tightness in lower half, diminishing pad level
    Initial pop into run fits is lacking
    Will struggle to create movement as NFL drive blocker
    Radius of power zone appears narrow at point of attack
    Not as effective getting to back-side blocks as he is on play-side
    Can be too slow to throw his under-hook punch
    Forced into multiple anchor resets against power rushers
