Analysis

Strengths

Athletic center. Was asked to pull at Georgia. Good upper-body strength and has preferred "snap, step, leverage" at point of attack. Second level demon. Can stalk and mirror second-level targets before impact. Rarely lunges or plays with poor body control. Very good change of direction to corral moving targets and take them out of the play. Did not allow a sack over last two seasons. Understands who he helps and who his help is in pass protection. Tenacious and has big, strong hands to sustain blocks.

Weaknesses

Lacks NFL frame. No mass through lower body with thin calves and ankles. Average hip flexion and doesn't always bring hips under him. Lacks the mass and power to displace nose tackles in odd fronts. Could struggle to keep weight on. Offers no position diversity. Hands will drift a little wide at times in protection. Can be bull-rushed when isolated.

Draft Projection

Priority free agent

Bottom Line

Andrews is a three-year starter and a quality football player. He's a consistent performer who will have to find a fit with a zone scheme rushing attack because of his lack of NFL mass and power. Andrews has enough skill to play in the league, but his small frame will be a non-starter for some teams.
