Joseph Noteboom has made 40 consecutive starts since his redshirt freshman season in 2014 and has never missed any time due to injury in his collegiate career. In 396 pass blocking snaps at Left Tackle, Noteboom allowed 3 sacks, 1 hit and 6 hurries. Noteboom had a solid week competing in Mobile for the Senior Bowl and turned some heads with a sub-5 second 40 and 1.72 10 yard split at the Combine.
Noteboom has a tall, athletic build with a solid base, condor wingspan and extremely quick foot speed and agility for his size. In high school, Noteboom played as a Tight End as a sophomore and Defensive End as a junior before switching to Offensive Tackle his senior year. Noteboom was also a club hockey player until the age of 15 and was asked to play as a protector on punt team, validating the athletic ability and footwork that shows up on tape.
In pass protection, Noteboom shows nice burst off the line with good kick slide technique and quick feet to anchor, extend his arms and punch to knock down rusher’s hands. Noteboom has an extremely wide pass set that causes him to give up some leverage when planting, but has the quickness and body control to recover and re-establish himself to disrupt rushing lanes. Noteboom rarely ends up on the ground and his mirroring ability is an enormous arrow in his pass blocking quiver. As a run blocker, Noteboom uses his quick feet and lateral control to quickly gain steam to expedite blocks on pulls and shows good upfield control at the POA. One knock on Noteboom is he doesn’t showcase ideal intensity and is more of a finesse player in the run game. Noteboom is a cerebral football player and rarely gets flagged for poor technique or mental mishaps. Noteboom's intelligence doesn't only project to the classroom, as he clearly watches opponent's film to key in on weaknesses and adapt his protection plan for the week to adapt for specific speed or power moves.
Noteboom's character and off-field is also stellar, earning First or Second-Team Big 12 All-Academic honors each of his four years as a starter at TCU. Noteboom compares in body type and play style to Brandon Shell and is best suited for a Zone Blocking Scheme where he can utilize his athleticism and quick feet to pick up blocks in space. Noteboom should hear his name called some time on day three of the draft and his floor is likely an effective NFL swing tackle.
