Three-year starter used at both left and right tackle. Missed the tail end of his senior campaign with a knee injury.

Quick, athletic lineman best in confined quarters. Explosive off the snap into his blocks, displays jolt and strength in his upper body, turning opponents off the line of scrimmage. Takes linebackers out of the play on the second level, works his blocks and controls opponents at the point of attack. Not a natural knee bender, lacks body adjustment and does not block with his legs. Lumbers moving about the field and not light on his feet. Ducks his head and does more arm wrestling then leverage blocking. If he improves his fundamentals he'll have a serious chance at the next level inside at guard. Free Agent.
