Gus Felder

OG | (6-2, 324, 5.86) | Penn State
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: Married with two daughters, and served as legal guardian to a younger brother. Partial qualifier in 1998 who had to graduate before the 2002 season to be eligible to play and did so. Missed much of spring practice so he could concentrate on his grades. Played in every game as a second-year freshman in '99. Started six games, including the last five, at guard in 2000 and started every game at left tackle in '01. Started 12-of-12 games last fall.

Positives: Good size and excellent use of hands. Good hand punch but inconsistent hand placement. Can anchor and adjust in small areas. Wide-boned. Smart, mature and a good student. Gets good position and walls off defenders. Zone blocker who can wall and position in a limited area.

Negatives: Struggles handling wide rushers and sliding quickly to cut off. Has difficulty adjusting on the move on the second level. Does not have great body control and struggles adjusting in larger areas. More of a waist-bender when run blocking. Does not adjust well on the counter. Lacks speed and range, and the further he goes, the less athletic he looks. Has trouble when defensive linemen come across his face. Lacks core strength.

Summary: Plays better in confined areas and needs to be a guard at the next level because of his difficulty adjusting, but lacks the mobility to make a roster.
