Draft Analysis:

"I think he is a tackle; don't know if he's powerful enough to play inside. He elevated his stock at the Senior Bowl. The Broncos need some depth on the offensive line." -- Mike Mayock

  • 6'6" Height
  • 34" Arm Length
  • 301LBS. Weight
  • 9 5/8" Hands

Overview

Prepped in suburban Chicago, where he also ran 110-meter hurdles his first two years in high school. Redshirted in 2009. Was a reserve/special-teams contributor in '10, appearing in all 13 games. Started 10 of 13 games at left guard in '11. Started all 26 games at right tackle 2012-13.

Analysis

Strengths

Good run blocker -- drives his legs on contact and generates some power through his lower body. Can steer, control and lock down defenders once he gets his hands on them. Good playing demeanor -- gets after it and seeks to finish. Is tough-minded and hardworking. Gritty competitor.

Weaknesses

Not an explosive drive blocker who can clear holes with regularity. Average foot quickness. Tends to overextend and lunge in-line and on the move. Marginal reactive quickness and recovery speed for the outside. Exposed by edge speed (see Michigan State vs. Shilique Calhoun) -- cannot cut off the wide rush and struggles to handle quick, inside counters. Late to reach the second level.

Draft Projection

Rounds 4-5

Bottom Line

Quick-footed college right tackle with experience playing on the inside and offers versatility as a utility swing backup. Possesses eventual-starter potential, but could always be restricted by athletic limitations and leave teams desiring better.
