BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who totaled 49/6/1 as a senior. Career-high numbers of 55/5/5 came as a junior when he was awarded All-Conference honors.
POSITIVES: Productive, undersized defensive lineman who plays hard until the whistle blows. Keeps his pads low to the ground getting leverage on opponents, works his hands throughout the action, and drives up the field.
NEGATIVES: Lacks an explosive first step off the snap. Easily controlled at the point, shows marginal hand technique, and cannot get off blocks once engaged.
ANALYSIS: Friend is an intense lineman limited by a lack of size. He could find a home as a backup in a one-gap system.
