BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who saw action at left tackle and both guard positions in college.

POSITIVES: Giles has been a tough and dependable collegiate offensive lineman, and shows a lot of versatility on the field. He lacks the bulk to be a starter at the next level, yet he has the ability to be used at several blocking positions that could help him find a spot as an inexpensive utility lineman.

NEGATIVES: Does not break down well, lacks flexibility and struggles to adjust. Displays minimal skill blocking in motion for a smaller lineman. Had surgery on his knee in the off-season.

ANALYSIS: Strong, small-area blocker who plays with a nasty attitude. Attacks assignments, gets movement run blocking, and engulfs the opponents at the point of attack. Effective with his hands, jolts defenders with good punch, and keeps his feet active throughout the action. Displays blocking vision, good overall intelligence, and helps out teammates.

PROJECTION: FA
