Josh LeRibeus
Round 3, Pick 71
Position: G
Class:  Sr
School: SMU
HT: 6'3"
WT: 312 lbs.
40 Time: 5.31
Conference: Conference USA
Biography: Broke into the starting lineup as a sophomore in 2009. Academically ineligible during the 2010 campaign.

Positives: Tough, explosive blocker who's effective in motion. Gets his hands into defenders, keeps his feet moving and turns opponents off the line. Displays solid overall body strength, plays with good quickness and keeps his head on a swivel. Recognizes stunts or twists thrown by opponents and plays with awareness. Anchors at the point of attack and does not give up an inch to defenders. Fluid moving across the line of scrimmage, quick out to the second level and out-positions linebackers from the action.

Negatives: Occasionally late getting his hands into defenders. Lacks classic height for an interior blocker.

Analysis: LeRibus returned to form in 2011 and made scouts take notice with his exceptional play. He's a solid prospect with the ability to line up for a number of offensive systems in the NFL and could eventually develop into a starter.

Projection: 7-FA
