Shawn Lauvao
Round 3, Pick 92
Position: G
Class: 5Sr
School: Arizona State
Conference: Pacific-10
HT: 6-3
WT: 315

Biography: Three-year starter at both tackle spots as well as left guard. All-Conference selection as a senior.

Positives: Athletic offensive line prospect who possesses a large degree of upside potential. Blocks with a wide base, bends his knees, and always plays with leverage. Quickly gets off the line, explosive at the point, and a solid position blocker who turns defenders from the action and then seals them from the play. Displays top footwork in pass protection, keeps his feet moving, and extends his hands into opponents, anchoring at the point of attack. Displays good lateral blocking range, and is effective in motion. Quick out to the second level, adjusts to defenders, and can hit a moving target. Works well with teammates. Plays with a nasty attitude and always looking for someone to hit.

Negatives: Must improve his overall strength and learn to finish blocks. Ran hot and cold at the Senior Bowl when matched against top talent.

Analysis: Lauvao has been a terrific college lineman the past two years, and he?s a player we think can start for a variety of systems at the next level. He needs to improve the strength of his base, yet he has abilities as a zone blocker or in a straight ahead offense.

Projection: 3-4
