Conclusion

Overall, Wirfs is a powerful offensive lineman that moves people in the running game and shows great technique in pass protection at both tackle spots. I think he can stay on the outside, but Wirfs has the ability to kick inside and be a really good guard if that’s where he would provide best value for a team.
