Mike Saffer

OL | (6-4, 305, 5.45) | UCLA
By Pro Football Weekly

Notes: High school Parade All-American. Redshirted in 1998. Played in and started seven games in '99. Missed the other games with ankle and knee injuries. Started every game at right tackle in 2000 and '01. Second-team All-Pacific-10 in '01. Started 11 games last fall, missing only the San Diego State game with a rib injury.

Positives: Tough competitor with good size. Plays hurt. Gives good effort. Has a feel for the position. Flashes punch and pop. Blue-collar, tough guy who wants to play. Smart with top intangibles. At times, he shows he can bend his knees and uncoil.

Negatives: Limited athletic ability, quickness and pop. Struggles pulling, trapping and handling speed. Has slow feet and is on the ground a lot. Gets lean but overextends. Generally catches, is stiff and upright. Lacks lateral agility, struggles to adjust and stay on his feet.

Summary: Might have an outside chance, maybe at offensive guard, if he bends his knees and uses his hands better.
