Torn ACL in 2017
VS South Dakota ('19), Central Arkansas ('19), Illinois St ('19)
Radunz has a smooth combition of upper body strength and ability to move well in space and at the next level. Can be aggressive at times showing off how well he drives opponents off the ball. Light on his feet, Radunz has some quickness to play in space with good hips. Mirrors slower ends well and neutralizes power moves well. Very good at getting his hands on defenders and is very good at sustaning contact and blocks, finishing the play. His footwork stays very clean and it allows him to work both as a puller or a zone blocker.
Despite having quick feet, Radunz has issues in space tracking quicker linebackers or safeties which leads him to falter in his tecnhique and getting handsy. His system has him set quickly out of stance so he doesn't go against speed rushers often, and has a tendency to false step to the inside. Pad level can be an issue and the strength drops off when that happens. upper and lower body c get disconnected when he rides too high out of his stance. His lack of competition makes it hard to judge vs better pass rush moves.
Radunz has the size and strength to play tackle in the NFL. He's a willing blocker with a kck to stick to opposing defenders and finishes the play with great ferocity. He looks very comfortable moving laterally and fits well in the current trend towards spread offenses in the NFL.If needed, he has the tools to move inside to guard. He currently stands as a top 5 OT and should go day 1. Due to the style of play in which he utilizes and NDSU's offensive philosphy, he fits best with teams that allow him to move a bit as an athlete.
As an athlete, Radunz does a lot of what NFL teams are asking out of OTs nowadays. He showed great mobility as a puller and shows the strength to contort his body and take on blocks off balance. Shows good movement with initial lateral steps and gains ground in the process. He utilizes his strength well by creating leverage. He shows some quick feet but his upper half still moves at a different speed than his legs and that led to some issues in space when dealing with faster targets. But he still covers ground well at the next level, just needs to work more with staying inside his frame and not letting his eyes outwork his feet.

Big Play Ability
As a run blocker, he shows some sty when finishing blocks. When down blocking, he flashed by taking defenders to the ground with his good leg drive. When climbing to the next level, Radunz has a kck for sustaining blocks with defenders once initiated and drives them out of the play. When trying to mirror and block safeties that are coming down hill, he doesn't always take the right angle which magnifies his tendency to reach outside his frame. Outside of those instances, he shows good technique. Has good hand usage as well.
The system in place at NDSU had him setting quickly, closely tied to the hip of the guard which allowed him to anchor. He saw more success dealing power moves as opposed to speed defenders. He mirrors slower ends well and can issolate power moves with his strength in large part due to his constant hands. His normal set allows for him to set inside and move outside, to prevent an overset. By doing so, he does a good job of neutralizing speed to power moves that try to jump inside him.
Ability to Combat Inside Move
Radunz is one tough lineman, what he lacks in length he makes up for in his mentality. He shows good get off and is more than willing to put opposing defenders in the ground if needed. His athletic abilities comes together well with his motor, which will remind anyone to keep their head on a swivel.
Radunz is on the smaller end for NFL tackles so he'll always have to answer to questions and concerns about his future projection and if he is better suited for the inside. Regardless of where he is seen, he is more than capable of doing so. He is smart and good at communicating pre sp about stunts and possible added pressure on the edge and showed some consistency with passing off stunts.
