Strong Points

Very athletic with rare speed for an offensive lineman. Quick laterally and recovers back to the inside easily. No problem getting to the second level. Does a good job adjusting on the move to hit a moving target. Has upside if he can get big enough.

Weak Points

Lacks desired natural size. Is narrow in the hips and lacks girth. Though he is weight-room strong, it doesn't always carry over to the field. Needs to improve footwork and hand placement.

The Way We See It

A fifth-year senior, he enrolled in 2012 but missed most of 2015 with an injury and was redshirted. He is very athletic with speed and strength (34 bench-press reps) but lacks size. Does not have the frame that will carry more than about 305-308 pounds. He is a bit raw but plays a competitive, aggressive game. Has to learn how to do a better job with his hands and keep good position. Will be a Day 3 selection and he may need a year on the practice squad to develop physically. Has some very good traits but size isn't one of the
