BIOGRAPHY: Full-time starter the past two seasons after playing six games with the first team as a sophomore. All-Conference and All-America
selection as a senior. Spent most of his college career at left tackle after seeing sporadic action at right guard as a freshman.
POSITIVES: "Athletic, pass-protecting left tackle with a large degree of upside. Blocks with a wide base, good knee bend, and keeps his
feet moving. Effectively fights with his hands, stays square and quick in his all-around game. Displays outstanding lateral
blocking range, and easily slides out to protect the edge. Fluid moving on his feet, and shows skill blocking in motion. Stays
square, keeps the defender in front of him, and shows the ability to handle quick, athletic defenders. Works well with teammates."
NEGATIVES: Not a dominant drive blocker who gets a lot of movement on running downs. Tries to outguess defenders and lets opponents slip
past him on occasion. Susceptible to inside moves by defenders. Not considered a very aggressive or tough lineman.
ANALYSIS: "Monroe is a prospect whose game has taken off the past two years, and he's an athletic lineman who should only get better
as he becomes more experienced at the position. He has starting ability at the next level, and he offers a great amount of
upside, yet he needs to improve his playing strength and learn to consistently focus on the task at hand. Monroe should be
a top-12 pick in April's draft, and then quickly break into the starting lineup for the team that selects him."
