Biography: Two-year starter at left tackle position.
Positives: Hard working blocker best in pass protection. Quickly sets up off the snap, gets his hands into defenders, and steers them from their angle of attack. Patient, has above- average footwork off the edge, and uses terrific body positioning to seal defenders from the action. Stays square and effectively fights with his hands.
Negatives: Lacks a dominant base and overpowered by large defenders. Must improve his playing balance. Not a natural knee bender.
Analysis: Kia is an adequate prospect whose game has been on the upswing the past two seasons. He must add bulk to his frame while keeping in place the ability to move in space.
