BIO: Former walk-on who started the past three seasons at center. Played sparingly at guard as a true freshman. Awarded All-Academic honors in the past.

POSITIVES: Hard working, self-made player on the pivot. Blocks with solid fundamentals, keeping his pads low to the ground, staying square and getting leverage on opponents. Can shuffle and slide in a small area, effective with the shot gun snap and fights hard throughout the play. QBs the offensive line and always looking to help out linemates.

NEGATIVES: Lacks the powerful base and not opening the middle of the field. Does not play with balance and has difficulty finishing his blocks. Marginal skills in space.

ANALYSIS: Nice collegiate player with limited skills for the next level.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
