BIO: Highly celebrated offensive lineman who made an impact as a true freshman. First team all-conference and All American choice the past three seasons and given the Jacobs Award as the most outstanding blocker in the SEC after both his sophomore and junior campaigns.

POSITIVES: King-sized offensive lineman that annihilates opponents at the point of attack. Quick off the snap, immediately jolts defenders with his hands and displays adequate footwork in space. Patient, looks for someone to hit and powerful at the point of attack. Easily pushes opponents off the line, blocks down well and destroys defenders. Bends his knees, stays square and rarely off his feet. Patient and seals blocks with body positioning. Athletic and moves well for one so large. Occasionally flashes skill removing linebackers from the action on the second level.

NEGATIVES: Overweight and gets so large he becomes immobile at times. Lumbers, does not adjust well and has trouble with speedy edge rushers. Must improve his hand placement as well as explosion off the snap. Reportedly near 400 pounds in the middle of February.

ANALYSIS: A large lineman that combines power and athleticism, Andrews plays to his size and has been one of college football's best offensive tackles the past three seasons. Possesses all the skills to be a dominant blocker at the next level but must be carefully watched at the next level as he must maintain proper conditioning year round. Could be a consummate All Pro should he get his priorities in line, yet could also be a prospect that never lives up to expectations.
