Strong Points

Four-year starter at guard. Tough and tries to be physical. Good strength. Stays on his feet. Can get some movement with drive blocks. Keeps his hands inside. Alert and aware. Good with inside combination blocks.

Weak Points

Lacks top athleticism, especially in space. Lacks speed and can have trouble getting to a second block in space. Looks slow on pulls. Just adequate ability to bend. Can have some trouble with counter moves because he lacks quick lateral agility and recovery.

The Way We See It

Fifth-year senior who has been a starter since midway through his redshirt freshman year. Has played a lot of football for Michigan. A legitimate tough guy who is strong and plays hard. His problem is he is not that athletic and it shows in space. He can struggle to adjust on the move when he pulls or has to get to the second level. He is smart, alert and aware and that keeps him productive. Adequate as a pass blocker because he is strong and can use his hands but can have some trouble with athletic pass rushers. May be better off at center. See him as a backup-type who you can get by with if he has to play. May be an eventual starter at center.
