Biography: Started nine games as a senior posting 28/6.5/2.5. Used as part of a rotational system the prior three seasons and totaled 18 tackles as a junior after 19 the prior season.
Positives: Large, forceful defensive lineman who looks the part yet only occasionally plays to it. Plays with good lean, flashes power up the field and bulrushes lineman off the ball. Takes up a lot of room in the center, stout at the point of attack and consistently doubled by opponents. Plays with good knee bend, slides down the line to make plays and moves well for a large lineman.
Negatives: Displays limited quickness off the snap. Rarely uses his hands to protect himself and is an easy target for blockers. All too often locked up at the point by a single opponent.
Analysis: Weston has flashed skill the past three seasons and very much looks the part on the field, yet he is a prospect who never met the expectations placed upon him. He possesses the underlying physical skills to be used as a two-gap end or tackle in a conventional four-man line, but he will never make it out of camp unless he turns up the intensity of his game and quickly produces on the field.
