BIO: Became a full-time starter last season, carrying the ball for just 3/54. Big 12 All-Academic selection throughout college.
POSITIVES: Alert lead fullback who translates his classroom intelligence onto the football field. Displays excellent blocking vision, always looking for someone to hit and stays with assignments. Seals running lanes and anchors in pass protection. Adequate pass catcher who totaled three touchdown receptions last season.
NEGATIVES: Marginal athlete best in a straight line. Not quick out of his stance and lacks playing speed. Stiff and has difficulty moving laterally.
ANALYSIS: A competitive lead fullback with a nice feel for the position, Kriewald is a limited athlete with marginal upside for the next level. Could catch on as a backup for a team that uses a traditional fullback but must make his mark on special teams.
