PLAYERS
Rafael Vasquez
Position: T
Class:  Sr
School: Hampton
HT: 6'5"
WT: 325 lbs.
40 Time: 5.32
Conference: Non-Division I
Biography: Former Tulane transfer who starred at Hampton in 2010 before being dismissed from the program last summer.

Positives: Large, mobile blocker who has shown flashes of brilliance throughout his career. Quick off the snap, blocks with a wide base and shows the ability to adjust to oncoming blitzers. Stays square, keeps defenders in front of him out positions opponents from the action. Moves relatively well on his feet, showing the ability to get out to the second level and remove defenders.

Negatives: Lacks top run-blocking strength. Never truly established himself in any college program due to a variety of issues.

Analysis: Coming into the season, Vasquez was highly rated by NFL scouts, but he never saw the field in 2011. He possesses the skills to play at the next level yet must get his priorities straight and focus on football before he'll ever see action at the next level.

Projection: FA
