BIO: Four-year starter who consistently graded out as one of Michigan State's better offensive lineman.
POSITIVES: Explosive interior blocker with excellent size. Quick off the snap, gets movement from run blocks or anchors in pass protection. Nasty, looks to hit opponents, yet moves well for a big man. Can adjust and blocks with good lean. Jolts defenders at the point of attack.
NEGATIVES: Haphazard in his movements and does not play with great balance. Average awareness and slow reacting to defenders. moves or recognizing blitzes thrown by opponents. Tore a medial-collateral ligament in his left knee during January.s Las Vegas Classic.
ANALYSIS: A big-bodied lineman with the strength to match, Whitticker stands out on film and can be a dominant blocker. Though the consistency and effort are not always there, showed strides of improvement as a senior and has a place at the next level if he keeps working hard. Recent knee injury will keep him out of the draft.
