Ht., Wt.: 6'4, 317
40 Time: 5.54
Grade: 3.38

BIO: Two-year starter who also saw ex10sive playing time with the first unit as a true sophomore. First-team All-Conference as a senior also gaining some All-American notoriety. Played right tackle at Harvard.

POSITIVES: Athletic prospect who broke through with a terrific senior campaign. Quick off the snap of the ball, plays with knee bend, leverage and stays square. Strong in his upper body, fights with his hands and extends displaying great punch at the point of attack. Adjusts nicely to the oncoming defenders and easily controls opponents once engaged in a block. Explosive getting out to the second level and takes linebackers out of the play.

NEGATIVES: Lacks the fluid and quick footwork, does more back pedaling than stepping out protecting the edge. Not powerful in his base and gets minimal movement from his run blocks.

ANALYSIS: A lot of upside potential to his game for the future. A better version of former Princeton star Dennis Norman who was selected by the Seattle Seahawks in the 2001 draft.

PROJECTION: Late Seventh Round
