BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter at left guard who also saw action with the first team as a sophomore.
POSITIVES: Well-sized, competitive blocker who.s at his best in a small area. Blocks with good lean, stays square, and anchors at the point. Moves defenders off the ball, plays with a nasty attitude, and works to finish blocks. Smart, cognizant, and works well with teammates. Uses all his assets to their maximum.
NEGATIVES: Marginal athlete who is not light on his feet or effective in motion. Lacks top footwork and the ability to slide laterally. Does a bit of arm wrestling.
ANALYSIS: Fladell is a hard-working, intelligent blocker who could play in a system that limits his responsibilities in space.
