Scouting Report and Projection: Full grown player and developed quite well. Give the Hutchinson staff credit in that when he transferred they did not put up with the 338 pounds he was carrying, and in the Dragons spread offense they told him he needed to drop weight, by the end of fall camp, that 338-plus pounds was down to 308. That showed desire and discipline. Both will come in handy this spring as he will be counted on to come in and compete for a starting position at tackle. He is both agile and strong. He is also mentally tough. As close to the finished product as you can get, unless Russell Okung decided to return from Seattle and play college football. I expect him to compete and earn a starting job at tackle by the end of the spring.
