Second-team All-WAC. 2010: Played in 4 games, no starts. 2009: Redshirted. High School: Two-time first-team all-District 2-4A in Louisiana. Competed in track and field (shot put). Third in state in shot put as junior.



Good anchor strength -- is seldom inverted or moved off a spot. Can stack the line and occupy blockers.


Short with short limbs and a lot of extra concentrated weight in his midsection. Limited athlete. Tires easily and tends to stand straight up and get caught on blocks (marginal extension). Does not show violence in his hands. Is not a pass rusher. Has missed time with foot and ankle injuries associated with excessive weight that he has struggled maintaining.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Round-bodied, short-armed plugger with enough anchor strength to hold the point and clog the middle on a shade in a 4-3 front. Must prove he can manage his weight and stay healthy to earn a spot in the NFL.
