 Kyle Eckel Grade: 3.12
 Position: FB
 Class: Sr
 School: Navy
 Conference: I-A Ind.
 Ht., Wt.: 5-10.5, 237
 40 Time: 4.88

BIO: Three-year starter who posted 211/1,062/11 as a senior after career numbers of 236/1,249/10 the prior year.

POSITIVES: Hard-working lead blocker with the ability to handle the ball. Quick out of his stance, explodes into blocks and effectively uses body positioning to seal defenders from the play. Plays faster than his 40 time and creates space as a lead blocker. Gives top effort until the whistle blows.

NEGATIVES: Marginal speed for the next level. Limited skills as a pass catcher.

ANALYSIS: A tough-as-nails competitor, Eckel makes the most of his abilities but has marginal upside for the next level. Could eventually develop into a solid blocker once he fills out his frame and improves his playing strength.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
