William Whitticker School: Michigan State
Ht: 6-5.5 Wt: 320 40: 5.31 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Four-year starter who consistently graded
out as one of Michigan State's better offensive
Positives: Explosive interior blocker
with excellent size. Quick off the snap, gets
movement from run blocks or anchors in pass
protection. Nasty, looks to hit opponents, yet
moves well for a big man. Can adjust and
blocks with good lean. Jolts defenders at the
point of attack.
Negatives: Haphazard in his movements
and does not play with great balance.
Average awareness and slow reacting to
defenders' moves or recognizing blitzes thrown
by opponents. Tore a medial-collateral ligament
in his left knee during January's Las Vegas
Analysis: A big-bodied lineman with
the strength to match, Whitticker stands out
on film and can be a dominant blocker. Though
the consistency and effort are not always there,
showed strides of improvement as a senior
and has a place at the next level if he keeps
working hard. Recent knee injury will keep him
out of the draft.
