Analysis

Strengths

Can wall off, shuffle and sustain. Works angles in the run game and can gain positioning and lock out. Blue-collar worker with a serious, business-like approach. The game is important to him.

Weaknesses

Average size, arm length and body control for the edges. Struggles initiating contact on the move and connecting with linebackers. Limited base and finishing strength. Only bench-pressed 225 pounds 20 times at his pro day and needs to get stronger and learn to play with more shock in his hands. Tends to grab more than punch and can be exposed by edge speed.

Draft Projection

Free agent

Bottom Line

A finesse, college left tackle lacking ideal agility, bend and balance to handle NFL speed rushers and the girth, strength and power desired on the right side. Will have a long battle to earn a role and needs to get stronger. Best chance could come at right guard.
