BIO: Three-year starter and All-Conference selection as a senior after posting 43/7.5/2.5. Junior totals included 54/5.5/2. Academic All-America.
POSITIVES: Hard-working defender who plays with a high motor. Displays adequate leg drive, effective when he keeps low to the ground and a smart defender who immediately locates the ball. Works his hands throughout the action, fights to make a play and does a good job stuffing the run.
NEGATIVES: Possesses marginal athletic ability. Big, lumbering lineman, slow moving in any direction other than straight ahead. Does not play with great balance and easily turned off the line by opponents. Not quick or explosive in any action.
ANALYSIS: A productive collegian the past three seasons, Crochunis is a solid run stuffer with growth potential. Offers only limited upside, but could back up on the interior if he makes gains in both playing strength and bulk.
