Strong Points

Naturally big. Consistent competitor. Has good natural strength. Flashes being able to get movement with run blocks. Tough to beat wide because of his size and length. Has upside.

Weak Points

Like many tall guys, he is not the most agile and mobile guy. Not explosive. Can get tall. Inconsistent with his anchor. Inconsistent getting to second leve

The Way We See It

A fifth-year senior and a two-and-a-half year starter at left tackle. He is very tall with length and has some natural strength. Has some bend but because he is so tall he needs to bend more. Opponents can get into his body and drive him back when he gets tall. Has growth potential and if he can get stronger, he has a chance to become an adequate starter. Needs to pay attention to detail when it comes to technique and if he can learn to consistently play lower there may be more upside in his game than I've seen so far. Overall, a mid-to-later-round pick with a chance to develop. Has to be on the right side, as he lacks the quicks and agility to play on the left side.
