BIO: 2003 Defensive Player of the Year in the WAC after recording 76/22/13. Also intercepted two passes and broke up three more. Junior totals were 65/17/7 after 52/11/4 as a sophomore when he moved into the starting lineup. Performed well at the Combine running under 4.7 in the 40 and completing 35 repetitions of 225 pounds on the bench press.
POSITIVES: Productive lineman that's been a pass-rushing terror on the collegiate level. Athletic, plays with excellent pad level and adjusts off the initial block to make a play on the ball. Smart, immediately diagnoses the action then shows excellent speed from the backside. Redirects well, displays good hand technique and makes a lot of athletic plays.
NEGATIVES: Only marginal skills in run defense and handled at the point of attack by opposing tight ends. May not have much more growth potential.
ANALYSIS: A high motor player that constantly disrupts offenses, LaBoy has made his presence felt the past two seasons. A solid prospect as a pass-rushing end in a conventional 4-3 defense.
