Rich Lapham
Position: T
Class:  5Sr
Conference: Atlantic Coast
HT: 6-8
WT: 315
40 Time: 5.51
Biography: Three-year starter at right tackle who played in seven games as a senior before being lost for the year to a knee injury.

Positives: "Tough, slug-it-out small-area blocker. Sets with a wide base, keeps his head on a swivel, and blocks with a nasty attitude. Stays square and seals defenders from the action. Strong at the point, anchors in pass protection, and turns opponents off the line."

Negatives: "Stiff, struggles to adjust, and his lack of agility hurts his ability to finish blocks. Struggles sliding out off the edge."

Analysis: Lapham offers outstanding size as well as growth potential and could be a solid right tackle at the next level if he improves his flexibility after returning from his knee injury.

Projection: 7-FA
