Draft 2009

Pick No.213

Selected By: Philadelphia Eagles

Round: 7

Pick (Overall): 4 (213)

Pick Analysis: A former walk-on, Fanaika has used his unique combination of size, surprising foot quickness and determination to develop into one of the better, more underrated interior linemen in the country. Fanaika has intriguing upside for the next level -- if scouts can find a place for him. Despite starting three years at right guard for the Sun Devils, Fanaika's struggles with leverage could pose problems against shorter, powerful defensive tackles. There are some who believe Fanaika's future lies at right tackle, where his size and arm length could be beneficial, but with questionable lateral quickness and no experience outside, it is a projection likely only worthy of a late-round pick. Had an arm span of 35 inches and a hand span of 10 7/8 inches at the combine.
