Biography: Three-year starter awarded All-Conference honors the past two seasons. Senior totals included 29/6/1 after 30/13/6.5 as a junior.
Positives: Explosive one-gap tackle with marginal size and growth potential. Quickly gets off the snap with a terrific first step, plays with good pad level and keeps his feet driving up the field. Uses his hands to protect himself, wedges through the small creases of the offensive line, and fluid changing direction. Plays with good knee bend, pad level, and works hard.
Negatives: Easily knocked to the ground or from his angle of attack by a single opponent. Cannot get off blocks once engaged at the point of attack.
Analysis: David is a hard-working lineman with limited growth potential yet a prospect who could find a home as a three-technique lineman based on his quickness and ability to move laterally.
