BIO: Second-team All-Conference selection who posted 45 tackles with five tackles for loss as a senior.
POSITIVES: King-sized interior lineman built low to the ground. Quick off the snap, gets push up the field and a load in the middle of the line. Plays with excellent pad level, getting leverage on opponents.
NEGATIVES: Lumbers about the field, struggles moving laterally and cannot quickly change direction. Has only a short burst of speed.
ANALYSIS: A run-stuffer up front, Hayes has potential as a backup tackle, but must lose significant weight and properly condition himself to have any chance of sticking on an NFL roster.
