BIOGRAPHY: Played nine games last season, posting 31/5/1.5.

POSITIVES: Lane is a size prospect who's never met the expectations placed upon him. Considering his height and ability to move in space, he may eventually be tried at offensive tackle.

NEGATIVES: Lacks bulk and easily pushed from his angle of attack or handled by a single blocker. Displays minimal suddenness to his game. Never dominated on the small-school level as scouts thought he should.

ANALYSIS: Well-sized defensive tackle who plays with good leverage and quickness. Breaks down well, fluid moving about the field, and rarely off his feet. Immediately alters his angle of attack or redirects to the action. Solid first step quickness, works hard to make plays, and effectively uses his hands to protect himself. Displays above- average recognition.

PROJECTION: FA
