Prospect Profile: Rob Kane

Rob Kane School: U-Mass
Ht: 6-3 Wt: 300 40: 5.41 Year: 4Sr

Bio: Four-year starter who played every blocking position except center in college. All-Conference selection the past two-years.

Positives: Strong, tough blocker best in confined quarters. Plays with good lean, patience and football intelligence. Turns defenders off the line or rides them from their angle of attack. Nasty and looks to hit someone. Solid position blocker who stays square and seals defenders from the action. Good jolt at the point of attack and controls opponents once engaged in a block.

Negatives: Not effective on the move or out to the second level. Lacks blocking range and footwork protecting the blind side. Gets straight legged and not a leverage blocker.

Analysis: Sized for the guard position, Kane is a limited athlete, yet hardworking football player with good intangibles. Possesses minimal possibilities as a starter at the next level, though his versatility and durability displayed will get him consideration as a team's eighth offensive lineman.
