Overview

Exciting raw talent with the size, athletic ability and rapid improvement to warrant the patience needed for development. Signed with Northwestern State on a basketball scholarship and has only played organized football since 2005. Originally played defensive end, but was quickly switched to left tackle and has developed into an All-American honoree. Raw as they come, but scouts love his upside.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Long armed, athletic build with plenty of room for additional growth. ... Trim build for an offensive lineman with good overall muscular development in his upper and lower. ... Good overall athlete. ... Good initial quickness off the snap, in pass protection to mirror and when blocking at the second level. ... Quick hands which could become very effective with further development. ... Significant improvement in three seasons with the athleticism to continue development. Negatives: Raw as they come. ... Quality of competition a concern. ... Lacks the bulk and necessary strength to compete at the NFL level at this time. ... Gets by on his quickness, but lacks explosiveness in his initial hand punch and the anchor to handle effective bull rushers. ... Hasn't learned yet to play with leverage.
