According to TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline, Notre Dame senior T Christian Lombard has not adjusted well to the shift from guard to tackle.

This is actually a second shift for Lombard, who started at right tackle in 2012 and moved to right guard in 2013. Pauline observed that the senior "had difficulties handling the pass rush" in Notre Dame's loss to Arizona State on Saturday. Making matters worse, the 6-foot-5, 315-pounder also had issues finishing his run blocks.

If Notre Dame senior OG Christian Lombard can improve his consistency, he could be selected in the top half of the 2015 draft, according to CBS Sports' Derek Stephens.

Lombard started every game in 2012 at right tackle and transitioned to right guard in 2013. "As a run-blocker, Lombard demonstrates nice initial quickness off the snap, and good awareness to identify, square up and explode into his target, and aims to finish each opponent into the turf," Stephens wrote. "In pass-protection, he exhibits a fluid kick-slide and possesses the length and strong hands to keep rushers at bay. He could improve his overall blocking technique though as he has a tendency to get high in the pads too often, enabling defenders to get into his chest plate and control him, and he fails to routinely extend his arms off the snap." The 6-foot-5, 315-pounder runs a 5.26 forty.

Notre Dame senior Christian Lombard "might be set" as the team's starting RG.

Lombard is listed as a swing guard/tackle, but he stayed at the right guard spot when starting right tackle Ronnie Stanley did not dress. Steve Elmer filled in for Stanley on the first team.
