Position: DT
Class: Sr
School: Nebraska
Conference: Big 12
Ht., Wt.: 6'1, 295
40 Time: 4.95
Grade: 3.15

BIO: Two-year starter registering 45-5-1 as a senior after 24-6-2.5 the prior year when he stepped into the lineup for Jason Lohr.

POSITIVES: Quick, hard working lineman with a good head for the ball. Displays an explosive first step off the snap, works his hands to keep blockers away and stays on his feet. Disciplined, and immediately anticipates the play or reads the offense. Fights hard to get involved.

NEGATIVES: Gets tall and an easy target for opposing blockers. Slow to shed, handled at the point or knocked from his angle of attack. Lacks the fluid change of direction and possesses only a short burst of speed.

ANALYSIS: Inexpensive back-up in a four man front and best placed next to a wide body.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
