BIO: Second-team all-conference choice as a senior after finishing with 58/7/3.5. Started 12 games as a junior posting 32/2/0 after receiving a medical hardship in 2001 with assorted injuries.
POSITIVES: Hard-working, athletic lineman who tests better than he plays. Quick off the snap, works to stay low and rarely off his feet. Immediately diagnoses the action and quickly locates the ball carrier.
NEGATIVES: Does not make a lot of plays up and down the line of scrimmage. Not big or bulky, easily moved from his angle of attack and wears down over the course of a game.
ANALYSIS: Physically gifted, Casavan has the size-speed numbers which lends one to believe he'd be a forceful defender on the field but that has not been the case. Must quickly transfer his athletic skills onto the football field to have a chance.
