Four-year starter with a history of injury problems in the past. Played both left tackle and weak- side tackle in the Colorado offensive system. Has had multiple surgeries on his ankle, knee and shoulder, causing him to miss time in the past.

Nice-sized, athletic lineman starting to meet the expectations placed on him. Quick off the snap into his blocks or setting-up in pass protection, plays with forward lean, knee bend and extends his arms. Displays the ability to block on the move and takes out of the action linebackers on the second level. Nice overall blocking range. Stays square, keeps opponents in front of him and works his blocks. Displays strength at the point of attack and controls defenders once engaged in a block . Does not play with great balance, bends at the waist and gets turned. Slow picking up his assignments at times. Athleticism and natural skills give him a large upside. Past injuries, which have slowed his development, must be checked out. If healthy a good long term prospect that could move into a starting lineup by his second season in the league. Late Second Round.
