Overview

A strong and dependable interior blocker, Canfield has started since the end of his redshirt freshman season, missing only one game in his college career. A three-time second-team All-Big East pick -- as a left guard in 2007 and right guard in '06 and '08. NFL teams using a zone-blocking scheme will especially like his ability to block on the move. He may even make the move to right tackle because of his size and athleticism. Had an arm span of 32 inches and a hand span of 9 1/4 inches at the combine.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Tall and strong, but also nimble for pass protection and in reaching linebackers at the second level. ... Plays mean, willing to destroy targets in space and keep them on the ground until the play is done. ... Gets down quickly to cut linemen, but can also get up and immediately find someone to hit. ... Sets quickly and anchors well in pass protection. Gets the shoulder of his defender to create the correct running lane. ... Hands come up into his man's jersey quickly and he can move the defender as desired. ... More than willing to help out his tackle with an outside pass rusher. ... Is versatile enough to possibly move outside. Negatives: Not a power drive blocker, lacking the lower-body strength needed to move larger defensive tackles. ... Must improve his punch to knock tackles off their moves. ... Needs to find and lock onto defenders in the open and sustain those blocks more consistently. ... He should dominate safeties and linebackers in space. ... Does not keep his pads low enough in short-yardage situations, losing the leverage battle. ... Fails to recover quickly from overextending. ... Sometimes will get penalized when he plays with too much attitude.
