BIO: Productive Four-year starter and multi-award winner since 1999. All-Conference pick as a senior also garnering All-America at10tion. Took home the Jacob's Blocking Trophy as a junior, given to the ACC's top offensive lineman, earning first team All-ACC honors that season. Second-team selection as both a red-shirt sophomore and freshman.

POSITIVES: Durable and fundamentally sound blocker with a great feel for his position. Plays with a wide base, body lean and very patient. Stays square keeping defenders in front of him, displays good hand jolt and makes effective use of blocking angles or body positioning. Intuitive and immediately picks up defensive games or helps out linemates if needed. Strong at the point, controls defenders or sustains blocks once engaged.

NEGATIVES: Not flexible, lacks adjustment and has difficulty with pass rushers that take wide angles. Not a dominant run blocker nor is he effective on the second level.

ANALYSIS: Played left tackle in college and could eventually develop into a blind side protector at the next level. Coming off a mediocre senior campaign but durability and versatility to play any of four positions up front will keep the interest in him high. To this point in his career a better version of Jason Fabini presently with the New York Jets.

PROJECTION: Early Third Round
