2013: First-team All-Big Sky selection by the coaches. 2012: Started in 10 of 11 games at right tackle, missing one game due to illness. 2011: Assumed starting role at right tackle, where he played entire season. 2010: Played in three games as a backup lineman. 200: Redshirted.
Tough, scrappy and competitive. Good finisher. Plays with a chip on his shoulder and attacks in the run game. Plays with heavy hands and good pop in his punch to finish blocks. Effective cut blocker -- chops down defensive ends. Very quick working up a level and can seal off linebackers. Has a frame to grow into.
Duck-footed. Plays with heavy feet in pass protection and could be stressed by outside speed (see California). Marginal sustain in pass pro. Can do a better job connecting and adjusting to movement on the second level.
Priority free agent
A tough, chippy physical college right tackle ideally suited for a zone-blocking scheme, Van Dyk displays the football temperament to compete in the run game. Must show improvement in pass pro to earn a job. Intriguing developmental prospect with a swagger desired by offensive line coaches.
