Two-year starter at left tackle. Second team All-Conference choice last season as a senior. Has played center and long snapped in the past.
Hard-working, athletic lineman that blocks with solid fundamentals. Sets with a wide base, plays low to the ground with leverage and keeps his knees bent throughout the action. Quick setting in pass protection, stays square and keeps opponents in front of him. Makes effective use of his blocking angles and displays adequate footwork in pass protection. Works his hands nicely, extends his arms and rarely makes fundamental errors. Patient, does not overextend and stays his blocks. Not strong at the point of attack, gets minimal movement from his run blocks and has difficulty finishing off opponents. Does have a two-year military commitment after this season. Young and should get better as he matures physically. Late round consideration and a solid long term developmental prospect whose versatility is attractive. Late Sixth Round.
