BIO: Three-year starter. Broke his left leg nine games into his senior campaign then spent the rest of the season on the sidelines.
POSITIVES: Explosive, alert lineman who works best in a small area. Quickly gets into blocks, works his hands throughout the action and plays heads-up football. Jolts defenders at the point and seals opponents from the action.
NEGATIVES: Not a dominant center who opens up the middle of the line. Stiff, gets straight- legged and falls off blocks.
ANALYSIS: A hard-working blocker, Closner has possibilities as an inexpensive backup center at the next level.
