Analysis

Strengths

Gets out of his stance with urgency and plays hard. Provides enough protection for quick passing game. Mobile enough to step to the second level. Three-year starter at a top program. Showed improvement as a senior. Outstanding 10-yard split (1.76 seconds) and 40-time (5.03) at his pro day.

Weaknesses

Struggles to survive on an island. Needs to improve hand use and sustain. Does not punch with balance or coordination. Tends to overset and lacks recovery ability. Struggles to fan outside speed rushers and is susceptible to inside moves (weak inside punch/power step). Late to cut off linebackers and struggles connecting with moving targets.

Draft Projection

Rounds 6-7

Bottom Line

Tall, experienced right-tackle-only project who does not "wow" athletically or technically and could be destined for a practice squad.
