BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter experienced at both the left and right tackle positions.
POSITIVES: Valdez has the size and strength which translate well to the next level. After spending his college career at tackle his playing
style dictates a move inside to guard at the next level. Valdez could be one of this draft�s better bargains if he continues
to improve his game.
NEGATIVES: Rumbles about the field and shows no skill in motion. Struggles to adjust and exploited by quick or nimble opponents.
ANALYSIS: Strong, small area blocker who plays with a nasty attitude. Quickly gets into blocks, works his hands throughout the action,
and stays square. Keeps his feet moving, makes effective use of angle, and steers defenders from the point of attack. Anchors
in pass protection and works hard to finish blocks.
