Strong Points

Four-year starter and a very good MAC-level player. Very good size with strength and power. Can anchor in pass pro. Quick set, can use his hands in pass game, mirror, slide and recover. Shows he is able to get movement in the run game. Can get to second level. Stays on his feet.

Weak Points

Plays at a lower level of competition. In the run game, he tends to stop and then restart his feet on contact. Can bend at the waist at times. Has not played left tackle. Needs better hand use in run game.

The Way We See It

Fifth-year senior and a four-year starter. Has played mostly right tackle but did play right guard in 2015. Has great size but may be better off at between 315 and 320 pounds. Thick build with long arms. Effective pass blocker who can anchor and mirror against MAC-level opponents. Needs to improve his footwork and hand use in the run game. Overall, a talented player who needs some development. Start him off at right tackle but may end up at guard. Should start by Year 2 and can start as a rookie in the right situation.
