BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter at the left tackle position. All-Conference selection the past two years.
POSITIVES: Productive small-school blocker who could be used in a variety of positions. Moves relatively well, displays solid footwork and makes effective use of blocking angles. Stays square, has long arms and punches opponents from their angle of attack. Plays heads-up football, displaying good recognition.
NEGATIVES: Over-extends into run blocks, which hurts his balance. Must learn to finish. Steers opponents at times rather than trying to drive them off the line.
ANALYSIS: Flashing the ability to play at the next level, Bushrod has enough size and athletic ability to make it as an eighth offensive lineman.
