BIO: Former defensive lineman who started four games at left guard in 2000, then proceeded to play every contest at left tackle the following Two-years.

POSITIVES: Nice-sized blocker with the potential to get bigger. Plays with forward lean, works to stay low and effectively uses his hands to turn opponents off the line. Smart, picks up assignments and displays good wherewithal. Correctly positions himself, walls opponents out of the action or pushes them from the angle with a jolt of his hands.

NEGATIVES: Not light on his feet, does more stepping than sliding out in pass protection and stiff. Over extends and off balance.

ANALYSIS: Better off as a strong side blocker, possibly even inside at guard. Must get stronger and improve his run blocking skills.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
