Marcus Cannon
Round 5, Pick 138
Position: G
Class:  5Sr
School: TCU
Conference: Mountain West
HT: 6-5
WT: 350
40 Time: 5.28
Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-Conference honors the past two-years. Experienced at both tackle positions.

Positives: "Large, athletic blocker who easily controls defenders once engaged the point of attack. Blocks with good lean, shows the ability to adjust, and stays square. Quickly gets his hands into defenders, rides opponents from their angle of attack, and keeps his feet moving. Gets movement run blocking and effectively blocks with his legs. Solid footwork sliding out off the edge. Large enough to engulf opponents. Moves well on his feet."

Negatives: "Must properly condition himself, as he's too big. Played upwards of 375 pounds as a senior."

Analysis: "At the top of his game, Cannon is a blocking prospect who can be a dominant force at several positions up front. He comes with starting potential once he smoothes out the rough edges of his game and commits himself to proper conditioning off the field."

Projection: 2nd
