Biography: Three-year starter at left guard awarded All-Conference honors as a junior and sophomore.
Positives: Hard-working lineman who plays with a good degree of quickness. Bends his knees, sets with a wide base, and gets leverage on opponents. Explodes off the line into blocks. Keeps his head on a swivel and works well with teammates. Solid position blocker who turns defenders from the action then seals them from plays.
Negatives: Must improve his blocking balance. Marginally effective in motion. Does not get much movement run blocking.
Analysis: Tanner has been a solid player at Texas and offers adequate size as well as growth potential. He must get stronger yet does hold a degree of upside potential.
