Little started five games as a true freshman at Ole Miss in 2016. For the next two years and 24 straight games after that, he remained a starter. After the 2018 season, Little was voted by the Associated Press and NCAA coaches as a member of of the All-SEC First Team.
Lance Zierlein of NFL.com thinks Little could be a starter in the NFL and highlights his athletic ability as one of his best attributes:
“Little possesses the important combination of size, length and quickness as a prototypical left tackle prospect. While he wasn’t asked to do it much in 2018, he has the athletic ability to handle zone-blocking duties, which could suit his skill-set more than a physical rush attack. Little is a natural bender with good feet and pepper in his punch as blind-side protector, but his average anchor and inconsistent body control create some concern. He will be an early starter at left tackle, but needs to improve his strength and eliminate his tendency to lean in order to reach the potential his physical and athletic traits offer.”
Before the start of the 2018 College Football season, Little was thought to be a top-10 pick and one of the best tackles in this class. After the emergence of other prospects and the decline of what analysts saw on his tape, Little is now projected to be selected somewhere in the third or fourth round.
Little would be a good value for the Bills in the fourth round. If they decide not to go with a guy like Jawaan Taylor or Jonah Williams in the first round, Little would be a project with upside for the Bills. Thanks to free-agent signings Ty Nsekhe and LaAdrian Waddle, the Bills don’t have nearly as glaring a need at tackle as they did when the 2018 season concluded.
