Started in 43 of 48 games played. Moved from right tackle to left tackle for senior season. 2013: Third-team All-ACC selection after starting in all 12 games at left tackle. Helped Kevin Parks to become UVA's first 1,000-yard rusher in a season since 2004. 2012: Played in 12 games, starting 11 at right tackle. 2011: Started all 13 games at right tackle. 2010: Played 11 games, started seven at right tackle. Became just the third true freshman in UVA history to start at offensive tackle (D'Brickashaw Ferguson, Brad Butler).
Has outstanding size and vines for arms -- sheer mass and length makes it difficult for rushers to run the arc on him. Has strength to anchor. Wins with his hands. Pulls with a head of steam and can eliminate defenders when he has a bead. Logged 43 career starts.
Plays too tall and needs to drop anchor more consistently. Heavy on his feet and tends to bend at the waist. Lethargic shifting his weight -- stressed by speed and quickness and cannot recover when beaten. Limited hip snap and is not sudden or explosive. Does not breathe fire -- plays smaller than his size in the run game and does not seek to bury defenders. Weight has fluctuated and conditioning needs to be monitored closely.
Big, long-armed leaner with sheer size and length and enough movement skill to function at an adequate level on the right side, though his high-maintenance conditioning, intermittent intensity and uneven performance turns off some teams.
