Selected by New York Jets
Round 6, pick 13 (178 overall)
BIO: Four-year starter and second team all-conference selection as a senior.

POSITIVES: Tall, athletic tackle that plays intelligent football. Quick setting in pass protection, blocks with a wide base and keeps his feet moving. Slides out laterally, patient and effectively uses blocking angles. Jolts defenders with his hands riding them from the action and stays low throughout the play. Controls opponents once engaged at the point and works hard to finish blocks.

NEGATIVES: Stiff, lacks adjustment and balance on the second level. Looks almost skinny and must add bulk.

ANALYSIS: Cavka offers enough upside potential to be a successful left tackle at the next level. Must continue to play with good technique while adding strength to his frame, but a line prospect that could develop his skills in NFL Europe for a season.

PROJECTION: Mid Sixth Round
