Draft Result

Drafted in the 2010 Draft by the Oakland Raiders in the 3rd round with the #5 pick.
Developmental left tackle. Was one of the stars of the Texas vs. the Nation game. Tall, athletic pass blocker who needs to improve his technique and run blocking.


  • Small school prospect whose stock shot up after a strong performance at the Texas vs. the Nation game (this year's Sebastian Vollmer?)
  • Has the size you look for in a left tackle
  • Athletic enough to play on the left side
  • Good feet and balance
  • Hard worker


  • Has not faced elite competition
  • Not a dominant run blocker
  • Plays to high at times, needs to bend his knees more 
  • Might need to play in a zone blocking scheme
