BIO: Former walk-on who turned into a three-year starter. Totaled 15/61/2 on the ground as a senior, adding 11/168/2 as a pass catcher.
POSITIVES: Hard-working lead blocker with limited upside. Displays outstanding field vision, picking up blitzes and sliding his feet in pass protection. Nasty and works to finish assignments. Solid hands out of the backfield making the reception from his frame.
NEGATIVES: Marginally athletic, not quick off the snap nor a dominant blocker. Mostly a safety-valve receiver out of the backfield.
ANALYSIS: A hard-working football player, Manderino is a fifth or sixth running back for an NFL roster who must earn his wage on special teams.
