Joe Looney
Round 4, Pick 117
Position: G
Class:  Sr
School: Wake Forest
HT: 6'3"
WT: 320 lbs.
40 Time: 5.03
Conference: ACC
Biography: Three-year starter awarded all-conference honors as a senior. Tore a ligament in his foot during the Senior Bowl, and required surgery.

Positives: Relatively athletic offensive lineman with the versatility to be used in a number of blocking schemes. Moves well on his feet, displays solid footwork in space and shows the ability to adjust to defenders. Keeps his head on a swivel, shows good awareness and is patient. Stays square, keeping the defender in front of him, anchors in pass protection and seals defenders from the action. Immediately gets out to the second level, redirecting to linebackers and removing them from the action.

Negatives: Late setting his hands and does not correctly place them into defenders. Strong but not a dominant run blocker. Recent foot injury will set him back.

Analysis: Looney was a terrific college blocker and possesses the talent and measurables necessary to develop into a starter at the next level. He'll be downgraded due to the recent injury, but he offers good upside for a team that will patiently develop his skills.

Projection: 5th
