 Tony Tella Grade: 3.29
 Position: OG
 Class: 5Sr
 School: Miami (FL)
 Conference: Big East
 Ht., Wt.: 6-4, 307
 40 Time: 5.21

BIO: Two-year starter at guard who began his career as a reserve offensive tackle.

POSITIVES: Competitive blocker best in confined quarters. Explodes off the snap, blocks with a wide base and is strong. Controls opponents or turns them off the line, sealing them from the action with good body positioning. Effective with his hands, keeps his feet moving throughout the action and stays with assignments.

NEGATIVES: Not a knee-bender or leverage blocker. Lacks footwork in space and adjustment on the second level.

ANALYSIS: A self-starter who leads by example, Tella offers the size, skill and growth potential to become a first-team player in the NFL.

PROJECTION: Early Seventh Round
