 J.B. Closner Grade: 2.69
 Position: C
 Class: 5Sr
 School: Alabama
 Conference: Southeastern
 Ht., Wt.: 6-4, 275
 40 Time: 5.01

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.

PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
