BIO: Full-time starter as a senior after seeing significant action the prior year. Graduated from high school in ‘96 and will be 26 years old this May.
POSITIVES: Big, strong right tackle that dominates opponents. Bends his knees, plays with excellent pad level and stays square, controlling opponents at the point of attack. Gets movement from his run blocks and works to finish.
NEGATIVES: Cannot slide laterally nor is he effective on the move. Tends to lumber and not light on his feet.
ANALYSIS: An over-aged prospect, Lekkerkerker has shown improvement the past two seasons and has legitimate NFL potential. Best in confined quarters and as a backup right tackle at the next level.
