BIO: Former offensive lineman who started the past three seasons. Posted 91/7.5/2.5 as a senior when he was awarded All-Conference and All-America honors.
POSITIVES: Explosive interior defender with possibilities as a three-technique lineman. Gets off the snap with a quick first step, keeps his pads low to the ground playing with excellent leverage and wedges between blockers. Fights with his hands to keep opponents away, displays an array of moves and works hard until the whistle blows. Tough, yet at the same time smart; gets his hands up to bat away the throw if he cannot get to the passer.
NEGATIVES: Undersized, engulfed at the point of attack or handled by a single blocker. Straight line defender who lacks lateral speed.
ANALYSIS: A hard-working defender whose quickness gives him a decided advantage, Lorick is limited by both size and growth potential. Outside chance in a system that rotates its front four if he learns to make plays in pursuit.
