Draft Analysis:

"If you want to draw up a first-round offensive tackle, this is the kid. Offensive line coaches want to coach him. But there's a downside. There is all kinds of negative off-the-field issues. Because of all the issues off the field, he took himself from being a first-round pick to being a seventh-round pick." -- Mike Mayock

Overview

Prepped at St. Paul (Minn.) Cretin-Derham, where he won a state championship and participated in basketball and track field. Was the first lineman to win USA Today's High School Offensive Player of the Year. Also was Parade's Player of the Year as well as the nation's consensus No. 1 offensive tackle recruit, drawing offers from coast to coast. Originally signed with USC, but asked for and was granted his release after the NCAA handed down sanctions stemming from the Reggie Bush investigation. Joined Miami in July '10, starting 9 of 12 games played at right tackle -- did not start the season opener against Florida A&M, did not play against Ohio State and did not start against Pittsburgh. Also did not start the Sun Bowl against Notre Dame (stomach virus). Had offseason sciatic nerve surgery and was suspended for the '11 opener against Maryland -- on the season, started 3 of 8 games played at RT. Was suspended for the beginning of '12 spring practice. Following a funeral, was involved in a car accident and sustained a concussion -- missed the first 12 practices of fall camp and sat out the season opener against Boston College. Played 11 games, starting the final seven at RT. In '13, started 8 of 12 games played at RT. Was suspended against Georgia Tech. Revealed at the Senior Bowl that college suspensions stemmed from failed drug tests.

Analysis

Strengths

Looks every bit the part with a rare-sized body that will make offensive line coaches drool -- broad-shouldered, big-boned, well-proportioned and thickly built. Athletic bender. Light-footed kick slide. Is a day trip to get around -- long arms aid recovery and enable him to push rushers wide of the pocket. Thwarts rushers with a heavy punch and sturdy base. Locks on and controls. Walls off and seals. Widens the hole. Gets to the second level with ease. Passes off stunts.

Weaknesses

Weight-room strength is not special given his size. Needs to strengthen his core -- affects body control, contact balance, sustain and finish. Spends too much time on the ground. Technique lapses -- needs to play with more consistent bend and leverage. Gets in trouble when his feet stall and is slow to shift his weight. Labors to execute reach blocks and is stressed by quick inside moves -- occasionally lets defenders cross his face. Struggles adjusting to moving targets in space. Should be more powerful than he is. Uneven performance. Underachiever traits. Suspect maturity, dependability and decision-making -- is easily led astray and was suspended multiple times. Did not endear himself to coaches at pro-day workout.

Draft Projection

Rounds 2-3

Bottom Line

Monster-sized, long-armed, physical specimen with the raw talent to emerge as a dominating NFL right tackle in any type of blocking scheme. Failed to live up to expectations in college as a result of tumultuous career marred by tragedy, suspensions, injuries and benchings. High-risk, high-reward wild card who must convince decision-makers he's worth gambling on. Has already been removed from many draft boards and must be paired with a veteran position coach nuanced in managing undisciplined, high-maintenance players.
