PLAYERS
Alex Linnenkohl
Position: C
Class:  5Sr
School: Oregon State
Conference: Pac-10
HT: 6-1.5
WT: 304
40 Time: 5.36
Biography: Oregon State's starting center the past three seasons.

Positives: "Hardworking blocker with a good head for the position. Plays with good lean, keeps his feet moving and active with his hands throughout the action. Quick out to the second level and gets good fits on linebackers, sealing them from the action. Stays square, blocks with leverage, and a solid position blocker. Effective with shotgun snaps. Shows the ability to adjust and pick up blitzes."

Negatives: Lacks a dominant base and gets pushed back off the line. Needs help in one-on-one blocking situations.

Analysis: Linnenkohl has been productive and durable on the college level but lacks the size and strength to be a starter in the NFL. He has enough skill to be a backup in a zone blocking system.

Projection: 7th
