BIO: Former starting right tackle mostly used as a reserve last season. Academic All-Big Ten Player in the past.
POSITIVES: Versatile blocker experienced at both tackle spots. Blocks with a nasty attitude, works to bury defenders and strong at the point of attack. Tenacious, stays square and jolts opponents with good hand punch. Keeps his feet moving throughout the action and displays the ability to slide laterally. Quick getting into run blocks, plays with good lean and works with linemates.
NEGATIVES: Over extends, lacks balance and not a knee bender. Marginal skills blocking in motion and has difficulty finishing the play.
ANALYSIS: A hard-working lineman with the versatility to be used at several spots, Lorenz has distinct possibilities as an inexpensive utility blocker at the next level.
