NFL Analysis by Lance Zierlein:
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.
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
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
