BIO: Four-year starter who.s been an All-Conference selection the past two seasons. Primarily used at weakside tackle as a senior.
POSITIVES: Big, tough blocker with an outstanding feel for the game. Plays with leverage, stays square and controls opponents at the point of attack. Displays good initial jolt and explosion off the ball, quickly gets his hands up and effectively uses angles in pass protection. Solid position blocker who walls defenders from the action. Smart, works well with teammates and stays with the action.
NEGATIVES: Not a nimble lineman effective in motion or on the second level. Overextends and lacks blocking range. Not a powerful drive blocker and better in pass protection.
ANALYSIS: A consistent performer on the college level, Dahl offers adequate size with growth potential. Best in confined quarters, he must improve his playing strength and run-blocking skills to have a chance at the next level.
