Possesses a fantastic build for the position. Listed at 6-foot-3 and 317-pounds, he’ll fit in with pro linemen right off the jump. Strong hands and even stronger hand placement at the point of attack. Pairs with a strong base and balance. Times where his man-to-man success didn’t equal his efficiency as a zone blocker and pulling guard. Not very quick off the line of scrimmage, late off the ball at times and uses his footwork to bail him out. Struggled in pass sets that forced him to move laterally.

OVERVIEW: From a two-star prospect out of high school to an elite and reliable college offensive lineman, it's incredible to see how much Haynes has overcome already. He was the anchor of an offensive line that allowed 12 sacks all year, ranking top-10 in the FBS. Additionally, he started an incredible 49-straight games at right guard for the Huskies. The consistency and production ultimately led to All-American honors in both 2022 and 2023, as the country took notice.

COMPARISON: Jamaree Salyer
