BIO: Four-year starter used at both left and right tackle.
POSITIVES: Hard-working position blocker who uses all his assets to the maximum. Stays square and anchors at the point in pass protection or walls defenders from the running game. Patient, strong upper body and jolts opponents with his hands. Keeps his feet moving throughout the play and mentally alert. Sets with a wide base, bends his knees and gets movement from run blocks. Effectively uses blocking angles.
NEGATIVES: Lacks balance and has difficulty stopping speedy edge rushers. Has difficulty finishing blocks.
ANALYSIS: A well-sized blocker with growth potential, Poole.s improved play as a senior now gives him a legitimate chance to backup at the next level. Best as a strong side tackle yet must increase his body mass and strength.
