After playing football at Edna Carr High School, Weaver started his college career at Arizona Western Community College. He spent two seasons there, where his team finished 9-2 in his second season and earned a trip to the 2009 Mississippi Bowl. Weaver was an NJCAA All-American, first team All-Region I, and All-WSFL selection. Weaver played every game for the Matadors played in two seasons, and started all but one.
In his first year at Southern Miss, Weaver started in the first three games (and was named top offensive lineman of the week against South Carolina), before suffering a season ending knee injury. Weaver returned strong from injury to play in all 14 games the following season, including starting the final 12 at right tackle. Weaver earned second-team All-Conference USA honors. He was granted an extra year of eligibility by the NCAA, and returned in 2012, where he started all 12 games for the Golden Eagles. He was an honorable mention to the All-Conference USA team.
Future Hall of Famer
A once-in-a-generation type prospect who could change how his position is played
An impact player with the ability/intangibles to become a Pro Bowl player. Expect to start immediately except in a unique situation (i.e. behind a veteran starter).
A quality player who will contribute to the team early on and is expected to develop into a starter. A reliable player who brings value to the position.
A prospect with the ability to make team as a backup/role player. Needs to be a special teams contributor at applicable positions. Players in the high range of this category might have long-term potential.
A player with solid measurables, intangibles, college achievements, or a developing skill that warrants an opportunity in an NFL camp. In the right situation, he could earn a place on a 53-man roster, but most likely will be a practice squad player or a camp body.
