John Cornell
Position: G
Class:  Sr
School: Illinois
HT: 6'5"
WT: 315 lbs.
40 Time: 5.3
Conference: Big Ten
Biography: Full-time starter at guard as a senior after playing six games with the first team the prior year at both guard and tackle.

Positives: Well-sized small-area blocker who is strong at the point of attack. Works to bend his knees and block with leverage. Keeps his head on a swivel and stays square. Anchors at the point of attack or turns defenders off the line. Jolts opponents with good hand punch. Blocks with a nasty attitude and is always looking for someone to hit.

Negatives: Not a natural knee bender. Lacks footwork in space. Ineffective in motion.

Analysis: Cornell has NFL size and a developing game, showing improvement over the past two years. He's a developmental prospect who could be an inexpensive utility lineman at the next level.

Projection: FA
