Biography: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors as a junior. Struggled with an ankle injury during his senior season.
Positives: Fundamentally sound blocker with a good feel for the position. Bends his knees, blocks with leverage and gets underneath defenders. Quickly gets his hands up, stays square, and makes great use of body positioning to keep opponents away. Keeps his feet moving, anchors in pass protection and shows the ability to adjust. Works well with teammates. He blocks with a nasty attitude and is always looking to hit someone.
Negatives: Must improve his overall strength. Rarely gets movement run blocking and marginally effective in motion.
Analysis: Punzal had a solid college career and offers enough size to be given a look in camp this summer.
