BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his sophomore campaign and All-American honors the past two seasons.
POSITIVES: Hard-working college tackle who.s at his best in confined quarters. Quickly gets off the snap into blocks and plays with good pad level and an exceptionally wide base. Keeps his feet moving, jolts opponents with good hand-punch, and effectively uses blocking angles and body positioning. Effective in pass protection and plays with a good degree of awareness.
NEGATIVES: Must improve his overall blocking balance. Stiff and struggles to get movement from run-blocks.
ANALYSIS: Safe has been a dependable and durable lineman in college. He lacks great upside potential, yet he understands the position and could find a home as an inexpensive utility blocker.
