Biography: Junior college transfer who became a full-time starter at left tackle as a senior. Saw part-time starting duty at right guard the prior season.
Positives: Nice-sized, wide-bodied offensive lineman best in confined quarters. Quickly sets in pass protection, gets his hands into defenders and stays with blocks. Keeps his feet moving on contact and works hard until the whistle blows.
Negatives: Lacks blocking balance, struggles to adjust and cannot slide his feet in pass protection. Gets minimal movement run blocking.
Analysis: Diaz has shown flashes the past two seasons, but at this point, he is more of a size prospect who really needs to develop a complete game.
