Selected by Cincinnati Bengals
Round 7, pick 1 (215 overall)
BIO: Two-year starter at tackle after seeing ex10sive action as a sophomore. Played left tackle for the Wolfpack but projects to the strong side at the next level.

POSITIVES: Thick, powerfully built lineman best blocking for the run. Sets with a wide base, stays square and controls defenders once engaged at the point of attack. Jolts opponents with his hands, works his blocks and moves defenders off the line. Possesses a strong base and technically sound.

NEGATIVES: Not light on his feet, lacks adjustment and blocking range. Stiff and not overly effective in space.

ANALYSIS: Showed well at the Combine and looked as though he had improved footwork but better in confined quarters in a power running system.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
