BIO: Moved into the starting lineup as a freshman and has played extensively at both guard and center.
POSITIVES: Hard-working blocker with an excellent feel for the position. Quick off the snap, explosive at the point of attack and works hard throughout the action. Solid position blocker who seals defenders from the action. Intelligent, picks up blitzes thrown by the defense and works well with teammates. Outstanding with the shotgun snap as the ball immediately gets back to the quarterback.
NEGATIVES: Undersized, lacks the dominant base and over powered by opponents. Looks uncomfortable in space and not a leverage blocker.
ANALYSIS: A smart lineman who uses all his assets to a maximum, Herron has marginal upside for the next level. His understanding of the game and versatility to be used at several spots could get him looks as an inexpensive backup.
