BIOGRAPHY: Former defensive end who started the past two years at offensive tackle.
POSITIVES: Hard-working, undersized blocker who projects to guard. Plays with good lean, quickly gets into blocks, and effectively uses body positioning to seal opponents from the action. Stays square, works well with teammates, and displays good hand technique.
NEGATIVES: Lacks top footwork and lateral range. Beaten by speedy, athletic opponents. Gets minimal movement from blocks and shows marginal strength.
ANALYSIS: Emerson is a hard-working blocker who plays until the whistle blows. Flashing ability the past two seasons, he must get stronger to have any chance of sticking at the next level.
