Strengths

  • Top guard prospect in the draft
  • Three year starter at Idaho, all as a left guard
  • Nasty run blocker. Dominates at the point of attack.
  • Good initial punch as a run blocker. Locks on to defenders and finishes blocks

  • Sets up quickly
  • Great footwork in pass protectcion
  • Tremendous week at the Senior Bowl - Best O-lineman on either team
              

Weaknesses

  • Hard to believe a player with his size and footwork spent his entire college career as a guard
  • Dominant run blocker but still improving in pass protection
  • Occassionally struggles locating linebackers in space
  • Relies too much on strength. Must take better angles against linebackers and faster defensive linemen
