Former defensive lineman that promptly started at offensive tackle midway into his sophomore season. First team All-Conference choice both his junior and senior campaigns.
Fundamentally sound college tackle who projects to guard at the next level. Quick off the snap, blocks with a wide base and plays with forward lean. Patient, does not overextend and displays both footwork and body adjustment in a small area. Keeps his feet moving, effectively uses his blocking angles and rides oncoming rushers out of their angle of attack. Works his hands, stays square and gives good effort. Cognizant of his blocking assignments and works well with linemates. Quick picking up stunts or twists but does not move well in space, plays back on his heels and has limited blocking range. Not a natural knee-bender, has difficulty against quick, nimble opponents and does not finish his blocks. May not posses great growth potential. Solid, not-spectacular lineman that understands his position and goes about it in a workmanlike manner. Early Sixth Round.
