BIO: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a senior. Has been used at both tackle spots as well as guard.
POSITIVES: Aggressive small-area blocker who plays with a nasty attitude. Strong at the point, jolts opponents with good hand punch and is a solid position blocker who seals defenders from the play. Keeps his feet moving throughout the action. Gets good fits on linebackers at the second level.
NEGATIVES: Gets straight-legged as the play proceeds. Over-extends or lunges into blocks. Lacks flexibility, which diminishes his ability to finish blocks. Not effective in space.
ANALYSIS: A leader of the offensive line, Eaton is naturally built for the interior and offers the potential to be a backup in the NFL.
