Kelvin Beachum Jr.
Round 7, Pick 248
Position: G
Class:  Sr
School: SMU
HT: 6'3"
WT: 306 lbs.
40 Time: 5.38
Conference: Conference USA
Biography: Four-year starter at left tackle awarded all-conference honors the past two seasons.

Positives: College left tackle who projects to guard or center at the next level. Terrific pass protector who keeps his feet moving, bends his knees and stays square. Patient, keeps defenders in front of him and displays footwork sliding out off the edge. Smart, remains aware of assignments and anchors at the point. Jolts defenders with good hand punch and gets after assignments. Solid position blocker who seals defenders from the action on running downs.

Negatives: Not quick out to the second level blocking in motion. Lacks the dominant strength needed to finish blocks.

Analysis: Beachum was productive, durable and a consistent performer on the college level. He's a fundamentally sound lineman who offers potential as a backup at any of the three interior blocking positions.

Projection: FA
