Dan Connolly School: SE Missouri State
Ht: 6-3.5 Wt: 311 40: 5.27 Year: 5Sr
Bio: Four-year starter that saw action at both
left and right tackle. Awarded All-Conference
honors every season since his freshman
Positives: Strong, patient lineman with a
terrific feel for the position. Heady blocker who
immediately picks up defensive schemes, works
well with linemates and stays with assignments.
Effectively walls defenders from the action and
anchors in pass protection. Jolts defenders with
his hands and controls them once engaged at
the point of attack.
Negatives: Lacks footwork sliding
out on the edge, has difficulty adjusting and
struggles in space.
Analysis: A power blocker
best built for the guard position, Connolly's
experience on both sides of the line coupled
with his playing strength give him a good degree
of upside. Offers potential at several positions
on the offensive line and at the very least an
inexpensive backup who could hang around in
the NFL for a long time.
