BIO: Former defensive lineman who started the past two seasons.
POSITIVES: Nice-sized lineman who displays explosion at times. Quick off the snap, jolts defenders at the point of attack and turns them off the line. Stays square, gets hands into opponents and a solid position blocker who walls defenders from the action. Keeps his feet moving throughout the play and quickly picks up stunts or twists.
NEGATIVES: Lacks a dominant base, does not get much push from run blocks and has difficulty finishing. Does not play with great balance.
ANALYSIS: Possessing growth potential, Alston has a shot at the next level if he could improve his blocking strength and balance. Flashes ability yet needs to take his game to another level and display more consistency.
