BIO: Second-team All-Conference selection who moved into the starting lineup during his sophomore campaign.
POSITIVES: King-sized lineman best in confined quarters. Patient, stays square and easily pushes defenders from their angle of attack. Effectively uses angles, keeps his feet moving throughout the action, and plays with a good degree of intelligence. Turns defenders off the line, blocks down well on opponents and plays with a mean streak.
NEGATIVES: Lacks adjustment, blocking range, and displays almost no skill in motion. Gets straight-legged and does not get leverage on opponents.
ANALYSIS: A prospect with enticing size and growth potential, Kracalik displayed flashes throughout his career, yet never seemingly took his game to another level. An underachiever of sorts, he was never as dominant or productive as NFL scouts would like to have seen. A practice squad player who has potential at the next level if someone lights a fire underneath him.
