Analysis

Strengths

Shows good quickness and good awareness in pass protection. Has a good punch on quick sets and pass-sets with depth when sorting out blitzes and twists. Works up to the second level and will seal and latch linebackers. Stays low when uncovered and works well with his guards. Showed an ability to take care of business when asked to block on the move in Senior Bowl practices.

Weaknesses

Has difficulty with a zero nose or shade techniques. Tends to lose leverage when blocking heads up. Sometimes deadens feet and tries to position block, which causes him to lose the defender over the top. Hands open up and get wide. Has short arms and won't get much movement as run blocker.

Draft Projection

Round 5

Sources Tell Us

"His tape isn't all that guard when you focus in on Auburn's gap scheme, but when you watch him on the move, he looks much better. I think zone teams will take a look at him as someone who can eventually become a starter." - NFC offensive line coach

Bottom Line

Steady four-year starter who was considered a leader in the locker room for Auburn. Despite being highly decorated at Auburn, his tape was very marginal as a base blocker; however, his ability to play in space was highlighted at the Senior Bowl and could get him drafted on the third day.
