Strong Points

Three-year starter at left guard, but has also played a little tackle. Very good height and length (35.25-inch arms). Consistently plays a physical game and always looks to finish. Good with combo blocks and getting out to linebackers. Consistent pass blocker, bends his knees and can anchor. Reliable with short pulls and traps. Can adjust to a moving target.

Weak Points

Agility drills at the Combine were average. Not as effective on the longer pulls. Occasionally will have trouble with combination moves.

The Way We See It

Fourth-year senior who has been a starter since late in his freshman year. Most of his starts are at left guard but he has played some at tackle. He has very good size and the frame to carry 310-plus. His long arms are an added bonus. Shows strength and explosiveness on contact when run blocking and can get some movement. He's a physical player who always looks to finish and is a consistent competitor play after play. Has good enough athleticism to play in space. Very consistent as a pass blocker and can mirror and anchor. With his height and length, he may also be able to play right tackle. Will get drafted in the second round and can be a plug-and-play-type player.
