Selected by Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Round 5, pick 33 (168 overall)
BIO: Two-year starter at left offensive guard and a top reserve as a sophomore.

POSITIVES: Intelligent blocker who plays with good fundamentals. Effectively uses body positioning, forward lean and upper body strength to move opponents from the play. Anchors in pass protection, turns defenders out run blocking and looks to mash opponents. Immediately gets his hands up and jolts opponents at the point.

NEGATIVES: Lacks top footwork, not effective in space and better in a small area. Overall game lacks explosion.

ANALYSIS: Does a good job with the tools he has but limited upside and relies on brains rather than brawn to get the job completed.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
