Mickey Plyler on Vinson: We didn't get to see Vinson much as a senior due to injury but his junior film looked good. I think he can play inside or outside. A lot of his early progress will depend on his health but he has a good upside. The Tiger staff could afford to be very selective in this class with offensive linemen and this is one they focused in on very early in the process.

Reminds Plyler of: T. J. Watkins
