Analysis

Strengths

Outstanding arm length. Solid base in pass protection and can bump, steer and mirror. Understands fit and positioning. Can work up to the second level with ease. Flashes pop in his punch. Very durable, experienced three-year starter.

Weaknesses

Lacks substance in pass protection and can be moved off a spot and walked back to the quarterback. Tends to bend at the waist, overextend and lose positioning -- average recovery speed. Carries his hands too low and does not shoot them with violence. Is stressed by speed and struggles to cut off the rush. Does not play strong and catches too much.

Bottom Line

Long-armed, soft-bodied college left tackle most ideally suited for a role as a versatile, swing backup in a zone-blocking scheme. Has not learned how to translate his athletic ability and explosion to the field, yet possesses enough length, agility and untapped talent to find a role for a patient offensive line coach. Could warrant interest inside as a guard or center where he has help on each side.
