BIOGRAPHY: Four-year starter at center awarded varying degrees of all-Conference honors since his freshman campaign. Suffered a mild stroke last season, but was given the green light by doctors to return to competition in January.

POSITIVES: Felix is a marginally sized center prospect with an excellent feel for the game and his position. He offers possibilities in a zone-blocking scheme and should only improve as he physically matures and adds strength to his frame.

NEGATIVES: Not a dominant blocker in the middle who drives defenders off the ball. Lacks top footwork in space.

ANALYSIS: Aggressive position-blocking center quick in all aspects of the game. Effective with shotgun snap, immediately gets into blocks and shows good vision. Blocks with terrific fundamentals, bending his knees and getting leverage on opponents. Adjusts to defenders, picks up stunts or twists and seals opponents from the action with good body positioning. Fluid out to the second level, redirects to linebackers and knocks them from the play. Effectively gets his hands into opponents and extends them to keep defenders away. Works well with teammates and effectively quarterbacks the offensive line.

PROJECTION: FA
