BIO: Lead fullback thrust into a starting halfback position as a senior. Totaled 50/162/1 on the ground last season, also adding three receptions.

POSITIVES: Nasty lead blocker with good power at the point. Plays with an aggressive style, strong and controls defenders once engaged in a block. Helps seal the pocket in pass protection and squares into defenders.

NEGATIVES: Just average skills as an offensive threat. Slows at the point of contact, which hurts his ability to finish blocks.

ANALYSIS: A prospect with solid size/speed numbers for the fullback position, Joe must refine the details of his game and techniques. Could catch on for a team that uses a traditional lead fullback.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
