BIO: First-team All-Conference selection who originally began his college career on the defensive line. Started his sophomore and junior seasons at right tackle before moving to the left side in 2002.

POSITIVES: Big, strong lineman best in confined quarters. Sets with a wide base, starts low with leverage and easily rides opponents out in pass protection or removes them from the play blocking for the run. Displays good arm punch and stays square, keeping opponents in front of him. Works hard until the whistle blows.

NEGATIVES: Not nifty or nimble, does not play with great balance and sustains his blocks for only a short period. Not light on his feet, lacks adjustment and struggles in space.

ANALYSIS: Size and growth potential is enticing as is the nasty attitude he plays with. Developmental prospect that could be a good run blocking lineman in time.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
