Four-year starter and second team All-Conference choice as both a junior and senior. Played left tackle in college but best position at the next level is inside at guard.
Intelligent, run blocking lineman better in confined quarters. Quick off the snap, strong at the point of attack and turns opponents out run blocking. Blocks with a wide base, stays square and keeps opponents in front of him. Can shuffle and slide his feet in a small area, displaying the ability to immediately engage linebackers at the second level but overall lacks blocking range, has difficulty with nimble pass rushers and not effective on the move. Overextends, plays off balance and haphazard in his movement. Run blocking strength and inability to cover any amount of area leads you to believe he will be effective in confined quarters. Has the potential to get bigger and stronger in the future, which will only enhance his potential to make it. Early Seventh Round.
