Click here to read the Willie Colon bio
Full Name: Willie Colon School: Hofstra Pos: G
Ht: 6-3 Wt: 320 40: 5.26 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Three-year starter at offensive tackle named as both an All-Conference and All-American performer after his senior campaign.
Pos: Wide-bodied blocker who plays with excellent fundamentals. Gets leverage on opponents, stays square and anchors at the point of attack. Effectively uses angles and positioning to seal blocks. Fights hard throughout the action and jolts opponents with good hand punch. Nasty, and gets movement from run blocks.
Neg: Not effective far off the line of scrimmage or in motion. Lacks top height and better off inside at guard.
Analysis: A well-built lineman who has consistently improved, Colon performed well the past two seasons. A likely late-round choice, he could eventually develop into a starter at the next level.
