Analysis

Strengths

Outstanding size. Gritty competitor. Plays an old-school, backyard-brawler brand of football and seeks to finish blocks. Functional positional run blocker. Good versatility -- has played both tackle positions and can serve as an emergency tackle in a pinch. Three-year starter in the Big Ten Conference.

Weaknesses

Can improve weight-room strength -- only bench-pressed 225 pounds 22 times. Inconsistent technician. Lacks ideal agility to handle edge speed and can be challenged by quick inside rushers and counter moves. Lumbers to the second level.

Draft Projection

Rounds 6-7

Bottom Line

Big-bodied brawler who does not look pretty but consistently finds a way to get the job done in confined quarters and has the makeup of a sixth offensive lineman. Versatility could allow to be drafted late and eventually work his way into a starting lineup with continued development.
