BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who began his career at guard before moving to right tackle. All-Conference selection after his junior
and senior seasons.
POSITIVES: Russum was a productive lineman at Montana, and he offers the size as well as growth potential to get looks this summer in
a camp. He is a small-area blocker who lacks the upside to be anything other than a backup in the NFL.
NEGATIVES: Struggles to adjust, lacks blocking balance and ability in motion. Limited lateral blocking range and struggles sliding out
to protect the edge in pass protection. Has off-the-field issues, which may raise red flags.
ANALYSIS: Adequately sized college tackle best in a small area. Quick off the snap, immediately sets in pass protection, and keeps his
feet moving. Stays square, patient, and gets his hands into defenders. Blocks with a wide base, good knee bend, and fights
hard throughout the action. Strong position blocker who seals opponents from the play and works to finish blocks.
