Overview

Started all 50 games he played in while at Arkansas, and was a two-time second-team All-SEC selection (2012-13). He was voted as team captain for two consecutive seasons, becoming just the 11 Razorback in school history to serve as captain for back-to-back years.

Analysis

Strengths

Functional base in pass protection. Can work his hips and seal and execute combo blocks. Aware and alert -- good in-line reactions. Durable and battle-tested -- started all 50 games of his career and has experience locking horns with NFL-caliber defensive tackles. Highly respected two-time captain. Intelligent vocal leader with outstanding football character.

Weaknesses

Needs to bulk up his frame and get stronger. Limited push, power and explosion -- too often content to stalemate. Does not play with a load in his hands. Tends to bend at the waist, lean and fall off blocks. Spends too much time on the ground. Struggles to sustain on the second level. Center only.

Bottom Line

Experienced, dependable pivot who lacks starter-caliber power and athleticism. Lack of versatility hurts his chances, and he will have to survive on smarts, leadership and competitiveness.
