Selected by Indianapolis Colts
Round 6, pick 35 (208 overall)
BIO: Three-year starter at left tackle after splitting time at right guard as a true freshman. Second-team All-Conference selection in 2002.

POSITIVES: Technically sound lineman with a good feel for the position. Blocks with a wide base, bends his knees and works to keep low. Extends his arms, stays square and jolts opponents at the point. Keeps his feet moving throughout the action and displays the ability to kick out or trap.

NEGATIVES: Lacks balance, lateral agility, as well as top footwork sliding out to protect the blind side. Not dominant and does not get much movement from his run blocks.

ANALYSIS: Short to be a weak side tackle and not dominant enough for a run blocking guard. Approach to the game and understanding of the position gives him an outside shot to make a two deep at the next level.

PROJECTION: Early Seventh Round
