BIO: Full-time starter the past two seasons at weak-side tackle.
POSITIVES: Hard-working lineman with a great deal of intelligence for the position. Relatively quick off the snap, immediately gets his hands up and jolts opponents at the point of attack. Patient, stays with assignments and effectively uses angles to wall defenders from the action.
NEGATIVES: Average athlete who lacks lateral range, leverage and explosion. Cannot finish blocks at the point of attack.
ANALYSIS: A nice-sized lineman, Pera's ability to line up on either side of the line of scrimmage will attract potential suitors in the NFL. Must learn to bend his knees and keep his pad level down, but has the potential to backup at the next level.
