Full Name: Nick Leckey School: Kansas St:

Ht: 6-3 Wt: 282 40: 5.04 Number: 53

Bio:

2002: First team All-Big 12 selection.

2001:Third team All-Big 12 selection. Started all 11 games at left guard. Only lineman to start all 11 games at the same position.

2000: First true freshman to play on the offensive line at Kansas State in the Bill Snyder era.

The Good: Athletic, nimble lineman who stands as one of the nation's best blockers on the move. Quick off the snap exploding into defenders, strong at the point yet patient and does not over-extend. Fundamentally sound, stays square and turns opponents out of the play. Tenacious, stays with the action and works well with linemates. Quick pulling across the line of scrimmage and very effective blocking on the move, displaying the ability to finish blocks in motion. Intelligent, picks up stunts or twists and redirects well to the action

The Bad: Not a big, dominant mauler that would be effective in a power running game.

The Skinny: Leckey's athleticism and ability to move around the field gives him a large degree of upside potential. He also has the ability to play guard (present college position) or possibly even center at the next level. A prospect that could be an immediate starter in the NFL and should be an outstanding blocker as he physically matures.
