BIO: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a junior and senior.
POSITIVES: Improving lineman with ability at several positions. Explodes off the snap, jolts opponents at the point and stays with assignments. Turns defenders off the line with good body positioning. Keeps his head on a swivel and works well with teammates.
NEGATIVES: Marginally strong at the point and does not play with great balance. Gets tall and lacks blocking range.
ANALYSIS: A leader who does the extras to become a better player, Van Acker offers upside and could be an inexpensive backup at the next level.
