Height Weight 40 Grade
6'4 330 5.51 3.11
Three-year starter that has played both guard and right tackle, a position which he manned last season.

Wide-bodied lineman best in a small area. Quick off the snap into his blocks, effectively uses his hands and strong at the point of attack. Extends his arms, keeps opponents away staying square throughout the action. Sustains his blocks once engaged with the opponent, displaying the ability to turn defenders out blocking for the run. Lacks body adjustment, has difficulty if team's twist or stunt around him and does not move well in space. Bends at the waist and overextends into his blocks which hurts the overall balance of his game. Could be effective in a zone blocking scheme where his movement is kept to a minimum. Free Agent.
