BIO: Two-year starter extensively used at both tackle spots, right guard and center in college.
POSITIVES: Hard-working and versatile blocker with adequate size. Intelligent, immediately picks up blitzes thrown by the defense and works well with teammates. Keeps his feet moving throughout the action, stays square and displays ability as a position blocker.
NEGATIVES: Lacks overall strength at the point and the ability to finish blocks. Bends at the waist and leans on opponents. Marginal skills in space and gets tall as the play proceeds.
ANALYSIS: An offensive-line prospect with size and growth potential, Knebel's ability to play several positions up front is enticing. Must significantly improve his playing strength and learn to block with leverage to have any chance of sticking at the next level.
