Biography: Four-year starter who played both tackle spots as a freshman before moving to center and holding down the position the next three years. All-conference choice as a senior.
Positives: Quick, wide-bodied position blocker who consistently seals opponents from the action. Immediately gets into blocks, effective with his hands and displays ability on the second level. Easily redirects to linebackers and takes moving targets from the action. Keeps defenders in front of him and jolts opponents with good hand punch. Effective with shotgun snaps.
Negatives: Marginal athlete and lacks the strength to finish blocks. Shows stiffness in his game.
Analysis: Hatch was durable and steady at center the past three years. He has the size to play at the next level yet comes with limited upside. He offers potential as a backup at several interior blocking positions.
