Steven Vieira School: UCLA
Ht: 6-5 Wt: 310 40: 5.38 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Three-year starter who's been used at both
guard positions as well as left tackle. Secondteam
All-Conference selection as a senior.
Big, physical blocker best in a small area. Quick
off the snap, strong in his upper body and jolts
opponents with good hand punch. Keeps his feet
moving throughout the action, flashes power at
the point of attack and tosses defenders to the
ground. Turns opponents off the line, opening
holes for the running game, or easily pushes
them from their angle of attack in pass protection.
Negatives: Limited movement skills and not effective
on the second level. Blocks tall with marginal
knee bend. Big rumbling lineman, not light on his
Analysis: A durable and consistent blocker
on the college level, Vieira has potential as an
inexpensive backup lineman who could be used
at several spots on an NFL team. Possesses
size potential that, if met, would only enhance
his value at the next level.
