Positives: Adequately sized prospect with a variety of skills. Sets with a wide base, bends his knees and keeps his feet active throughout the play. Stays square and seals defenders from the action. Displays awareness and keeps his head on a swivel. Adjusts to defenders picking up the blitz and has better than average skills blocking in motion. Turns defenders off the ball when run blocking.
Negatives: Gets tall as the play proceeds. Struggles when matched up against explosive linemen.
Analysis: Nosal showed a lot of improvement in his game the past two seasons and is a developmental prospect who should only get better as he physically matures.
