Prospect Profile: Junius Coston

Junius Coston School: North Carolina
Ht: 6-3.5 Wt: 310 40: 5.35 Year: 4Sr

Bio: Four-year starter who's been used at guard, center and right tackle in college. All-conference selection in the past.

Positives: Big-bodied lineman who plays with solid fundamentals. Sets with a wide base, keeps his feet moving throughout the action and strong at the point of attack. Anchors in pass protection, controls opponents once engaged in a block and displays explosion at the initial point of contact. Displays a nasty streak, yet at the same time is intelligent and works well with teammates.

Negatives: Must get his hands into opponents quicker and extend them to keep defenders away. Bends at the waist, which hurts his balance and blocking range. Struggled most of the week at the Senior Bowl.

Analysis: A solid prospect with a good degree of upside, Coston's versatility and natural skills give him good upside for the next level. Must improve his techniques and learn to play against better competition, yet a good developmental prospect.
