He has been all over the board playing OG and OT in his college career and he even started his career at University of Idaho. He is a tough guy with a good motor and he is a pretty solid fundamental player. He has good overall run blocking skills, plays with decent leverage and knee bend and does a nice job of staying on his feet and finishing the block. He has adequate, but not great range as a pass blocker, but is very effective when he locks on. He has more than enough AA to get by at the OG position, although he may not have the range as a pass blocker to be a pure OT. He is a guy with enough intelligence and intensity to be a candidate as a swing OL in the NFL. He is another guy that may start to sneak up the draft charts.
