Overview

Started in all 52 games he played at Utah State, was a three-time first-team All-WAC player and a 2013 Remington Award finalist. His brother, Cody, spent most of the 2013 season with the Ravens.

Analysis

Strengths

Excellent size -- sheer mass to wall off. Generally holds his ground. Can sit and anchor and replace his hands. Good awareness. Consistent gun snaps. Was a rock for the Aggies -- started 51 career games.

Weaknesses

Has short arms and struggles to sustain. Not explosive or powerful. Very average athleticism and flexibility to maneuver and torque. Limited lateral quickness to slide and recover. Too easily tossed aside and cannot recover. Slow-footed -- struggles to cut off fast flowing linebackers. Not a nasty mauler.

Bottom Line

Big, experienced, wall-off zone blocker with a ceiling as a serviceble starter, though questionable versatility detracts from his appeal in a league offering few center-only spots. Has to be a masterful technician given his short arms and pedestrian athleticism.
