 Rudy Niswanger Grade: 2.73
 Position: C
 Class: 5Sr
 School: Louisiana State
 Conference: Southeastern
 Ht., Wt.: 6-5, 301
 40 Time: 5.18

BIO: Two-year starter awarded All-Academic honors throughout his college career.

POSITIVES: Hard-working leader on the offensive line with marginal upside. Stays square, plays heads-up football and seals opponents from the action. Quick to the second level, works well with teammates and is always looking for someone to hit.

NEGATIVES: Lacks the dominant base and rarely gets movement from run blocks. Struggles with the shotgun snap. Not effective in space.

ANALYSIS: A hard-working and intelligent blocker on the college level, Niswanger must add bulk and improve his playing strength to have any shot of making an NFL roster.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
