BIO: Four-year starter at left tackle that played 43 of 45 games with the first team since his freshman campaign.
POSITIVES: Wide-bodied lineman who's best pro position could be at right tackle or possibly inside as a guard. Quickly sets in pass protection, stays square and blocks with forward lean. Strong at the point, rides rushers from their angle of attack and a good position blocker that walls defenders from the play. Stays with the action and has a nasty streak. Blocks down well on opponents or engulfs defenders altogether.
NEGATIVES: Lacks blocking range, adjustment and the ability to slide laterally. Cannot block in motion. Exploited by speedy edge rushers all week at the Senior Bowl.
ANALYSIS: Productive in college four-years running, Wharton may be limited by a lack of quickness and footwork at the next level. Possesses both the size and strength to be a solid run blocker and should do well in confined quarters.
