BIO: Four-year starter used at guard and center. All-Conference selection the past two seasons.
POSITIVES: Hard-working blocker best in confined quarters. Quickly sets in pass protection, immediately gets his hands into opponents and stays square. Explodes off the snap into run blocks, turns opponents off the line or rides them from their angle of attack. Possesses a good feel for the position and works well with teammates.
NEGATIVES: Not a knee bender or leverage blocker and has difficulty finishing. Overextends or leans on opponents, which adversely affects his playing balance.
ANALYSIS: A versatile and durable blocker, Manfredda lacks top upside for the next level, but his approach for the game and feel for the position could help him find a spot as a backup.
