Bryce Hargrove is a 2021 NFL Draft Prospect

Bryce Hargrove is an offensive guard from Pittsburgh and a prospect in the upcoming 2021 NFL Draft. Hargrove started all of Pitt’s 11 games this season. He allowed two sacks, two QB hits, seven hurries, and 11 pressures. According to Pro Football Focus, Hargrove ranked 94th among offensive guards (20% snap minimum) with an Overall grade of 67.8 (82.1 Pass Blocking, 62.2 Run Blocking).

Hargrove came late to the game of football, not playing until his junior year in high school. He was very productive on the defensive side of the ball but earned a three-star rating from most services. After redshirting as a true freshman, Hargrove only played in one game in 2017.

But in 2018, he served as the sixth offensive lineman and took over the starting left guard position after injuries to other players. Hargrove started every game over the next two seasons, earning All-ACC honors both years (3rd-Team in 2019, Honorable Mention in 2020).

In the NFL, Hargrove projects as a backup guard that could develop into a starter after a few seasons. He is an excellent pass blocker but needs to work on keeping his leverage and balance in the run game. With that being said, his aggressiveness and movement skills should allow him to succeed in a variety of run schemes, with some coaching and development. Hargrove would be best-served starting his career on a team that runs a lot of play-action off Man/Gap run schemes.
