BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter awarded All-Conference and All-American honors as a senior.
POSITIVES: Thickly-built college tackle who.s at his best in a small area. Strong at the point and a solid position blocker who seals defenders from the action. Stays square, effectively uses his hands, and keeps his head on a swivel.
NEGATIVES: Lacks adjustment, has difficulty handling speed, and effective in only a small area. Ineffective in motion.
ANALYSIS: Experienced at both left and right tackle in college, Padilla offers potential as an inexpensive utility lineman.
