He is a very interesting guy, but is somewhat unknown because of a shoulder injury that sidelined for the '98 season. As a result, he enters this draft as a real question mark. When he is healthy, he plays like a big athletic guy that is light on his feet, has good overall movement and is really graceful for his size. He has excellent change of direction and pretty good range in his pass blocking. He is not always a power player and his lack of physical style shows up in his run blocking. He can at times, try to get by on his athletic ability and doesn't always play with a lot of intensity and nastiness. There are some minor questions among scouts about how hard he tried to play through his injuries, but it is not necessarily something that should be a negative for him. His combine workouts and individual testing by coaches will be critical to his draft success. If he does a great job and he passes everybody's physical, he could fly up the draft charts. He has the natural talent to be drafted in the first two rounds, but there are a lot of questions to be answered between now and draft day.
