Scout Eval: Shuler is one of the most versatile offensive linemen in the country. He can play any of the five OL positions and he'd hold his own at each. Once he settles in, he will continue to develop his technique and that could likely become a strength down the road. He needs to continue to add weight and strength as well. He is very flexible, he finishes his blocks, he can get to the second level, and not many play with more tenacity. - Chad Simmons
