Selected by Baltimore Ravens
Round 5, pick 11 (146 overall)
BIO: Itawamba Community College transfer who started eight games last season, finishing with 56 tackles, five tackles for loss and two sacks. Saw action in every contest the prior year and totaled 14 tackles.

POSITIVES: Quick, interior lineman coming off a terrific senior campaign. Gets off the ball with a nice first step, plays low with leverage and wedges through blockers getting up the field. Fluid changing direction, plays sideline-to-sideline and pursues the ball carrier from the backside. Technically sound with his hands, squares and wraps up tackling.

NEGATIVES: Lacks bulk, strength, slow shedding blocks and stood up at the point. Had only one productive season at Tennessee.

ANALYSIS: Some upside potential for a team that will stay with him as he develops his overall game.

PROJECTION: Late Sixth Round
