OG | (6-5, 301, 5.39) | Wyoming
By Pro Football WeeklyNotes: Redshirted in 1998. Started all 11 games in '99 at right tackle and guard and allowed four sacks. Started 10-of-11 games in 2000, getting five starts at left tackle and five at left guard. Missed one game with a separated sternum. Had some knee problems and had it scoped after the season. Sat out the spring of '01. Started the opener in '01 at left tackle before moving to left guard for games Two and Three, right tackle in games Four and Five and left guard in Game Six. Then limited with a right medial collateral ligament sprain. Reinjured his bad knee in Game Two last fall and sat out a game. Played hurt in games Four through Six before having surgery on knee cartilage.Positives: Great competitor and effort player who will not back down. Shows some nastiness. Can play guard or tackle. Position player. Excellent technician.Negatives: Limited athletic ability, balance, feet, pop and explosion. Average lower-body strength. Lacks surge at the second level. Questionable knee bend for an offensive tackle and plays better in line. Lacks initial quickness to gain advantage, pull and adjust. Needs to get better at sinking his hips.Summary: Probably best-suited for the OG position in the NFL unless he learns to play with better knee bend. Durability is a question, but he shows great toughness.* Player biographies are provided by Pro Football Weekly.
