Matt McCracken
Position: G
Class: 5Sr
School: Richmond
Conference: Colonial Athletic
HT: 6-2.5
WT: 292
40 Time: 5.31
Biography: Three-year starter awarded varying degrees of All-Conference and All-American honors since his sophomore campaign.

Positives: Strong blocker best in a small area. Keeps his head on a swivel, plays with a nasty attitude, and works hard to finish off defenders. Keeps his feet moving, strong at the point of attack, and pushes defenders from the play. Patient in pass protection, bends his knees and blocks with leverage. Strikes opponents with violent hand punch and pushes them from the action. Displays good overall awareness.

Negatives: Stiff, struggles in anything other than a small area and slow getting out to the second level. Lumbers about the field and not light on his feet.

Analysis: McCracken has been productive and durable on the small school level yet is limited in size and athleticism. He's experienced at several positions on the line, and his approach to the game could help him catch on as an inexpensive backup.

Projection: FA
