Draft Analysis:

  • 6'3" Height
  • 306LBS. Weight

Overview

Straight-line mauler who functions in the run game when a defender is lined over the top of him but will struggle vs. any quick movement and needs to be in a phone booth to survive. Has been a mainstay at right guard and could increase his value as a swing interior backup if he proves he can handle the pivot.

Analysis

Strengths

Solid base strength to match up with wide-bodies in a phone booth and stand his ground. Flashes shock in his punch and a mean streak in his play. Plays with awareness. Seeks to finish blocks. Has practiced at center. Three-year starter in the Southeastern Conference. Is book smart and football smart and capable of setting protections.

Weaknesses

Has short arms and is overly fleshy. Is stressed easily by quickness and is late to cut off the rush and adjust to movement laterally in-line or in space. Is turned too easily. Average recovery speed vs. stunts and counters.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Straight-line mauler who functions in the run game when a defender is lined over the top of him, but will struggle vs. any quick movement and needs to be in a phone booth to survive. Has been a mainstay at right guard and could increase his value as a swing interior backup if he proves he can handle the pivot.
