BIO: All-Conference and All-American performer the past two seasons. Manned the left tackle spot for SFA since his sophomore campaign, after seeing spot duty at center.
POSITIVES: Quick, heady lineman who plays better than his computer numbers would dictate. Blocks with nice pad level, bends his knees and works to stay square. Immediately gets his hands into defenders, displays strength at the point and controls opponents once engaged in a block.
NEGATIVES: Bends at the waist, lacks balance and adjustment. Overextends and on the ground too much. Not explosive and best in a small area.
ANALYSIS: Though a left tackle in college, Phillips may be better off inside at guard in the pros. Does not have a great upside and must improve the strength of his base to have any shot at the next level.
